Ads on Wings and Wheels
March 29th was a big day at Morgan County Airport. There were a total of 15 flights. Lynn Alley, Dan Thirkill and Dave Cleveland fulfilled thier currency requirements during the day. Also, John Ackerson and Mike Hendron successfully completed their flight reviews as well as their Twin Astir checkout. With a brief period of wind during the late morning, the weather cooperated so that everyone was able to shake the dust off of their wings from the winter.N54554 Accident Report

USA glider operations has begun. On opening day the club flew 12 flights and members enjoyed
Spring lift over Mahogany Ridge at Morgan County Airport. The club Calendar
shows the tentative startup and termination dates for the remainder of the airports and gliders.
Spring is approaching. As our operations ramp up, watch the USA calendar and messaging for opportunities to help. Once operational, our gliders will rotate among the four airports we use for our operations. Please see the Calendar page for location of gliders. Also available for download is the glider placement schedule.
The club is constantly making efforts to better communicate and track maintenance issues with the gliders. We have a new procedure which will go into effect for the 2014 soaring season. See the instructions document for details.
In order to better track glider usage there is a new and improved flight log installed in the gliders. Look for a zippered pouch that contains the Flight Manual, Weight and Balance information, the new Maintenance Items Log as well as the new Flight Log. The Maintenance Items Log has the contact information for the glider stewards at each airport the club uses. Also, please continue to fill out the log accurately for each flight. Thanks!
