John Stokes Sounds good to me. I could use a little 'Russian mouth release' right about now.

Thanks Windlord, it was great to get a good days flying with friends at this time of year in Australia. It's mid winter over here now with the shortest day of the year just a few days back. More daylight and sunshine from now on.

That's what i've heard. Since I have the time i've just decided to head somewhere to use it as wisely as I can. I fly-out later today, i'll be around SLC starting tomorrow. I'll also get to see SLC a bit.

Awesome. Have fun!
I'm not around or else I'd join you...tell Pat I said hi

Hi Angelo, I've never witnessed anyone getting hurt doing a pre-flight of their glider?

Okay, let me walk you through one example. A student, while taking a hill lesson, freezes up, doesn't make any corrections, and crashes, hurting himself. He claims the glider wasn't put together correctly. The instructor pulls out the pre-flight log, showing that it was indeed pre-flighted and put together correctly.

Boy, that's silly. A student, while taking a hill lesson, should be doing a supervised walkaround, himself. If he misses something, the instructor should correct him. Because it's a lesson, and that's part of what he should be learning.
And part of that walk around should be an emphasis on: it's your ass, and so you are responsible for your ass, because there won't always be an instructor around to save your ass. So preflight until YOU are satisfied the glider is correctly assembled.
So this is something that should be in the syllabus, not in a log.

Yeah, Christopher (Mavi) buried a thread I responded to after I made him, or her look like an idiot.

I think too many pilots have their thumb up their ass.

Are the people who only have 2 thumbs, or tragically, 1 thumb still able to give a hillbilly salute (3 thumbs up)? Do they have to borrow thumbs from their friends?

The irony here is that any person that you are likely to piss off is a pilot.

I wonder what would happen if EVERY post on this thread got three thumbs up?
