Nope, just have fun and enjoy the view! That's all the first flight is for....the rest you can get more involved.

The season is sadly drawing to a close, but not before I got to mess around with a gopro mount I made that attached to the Blanik's tie-down eye bolts.

This year was a rather crappy soaring season in Ohio. We have a new Base out of Ortner airport, closer to lake Erie (not really a good thing, but the old airport was sold).

Here's a quick sled ride (no soaring flight) from the new place. One benefit is the paved runway so we no longer have to wait for dry ground to start the season.

I just recently got my Glider Pilot's Licence this summer with the Royal Canadian Air Cadets. I did all my training on the Schweizer SGS 2-33A and can't wait for the winter to end so get back into it.
