29 May 2015 - Go Fly a Kite -  Remember when you took your brother to, "Go Fly a Kite!".  Well, these two brothers do. Today we continued with glider training. The conditions were variable winds so the students had fun doing forward and reverse launching.  By the end of the day they were very proficient at both types of launches. The next step in training is the In-flight training. Getting close to their first flight!!

27 May 2015 - Moe and Pierre Start Kitting -  Moe and Pierre started Kitting this morning. The winds picked up later on so we used the small glider trainer. Due to the high winds we practised reverse kiting.  Moe and Pierre did very well taking turns and learning from each other.
