GHSA's very own David Coggins has been selected to represent the United States in the World Gliding Championships 2018 in the open class. This is a very prestigious and select honor as only two pilots are selected to represent the United States at the WGC in the Open Class. David will take his JS1 to the Pribram airfield in the Czech Republic in July to compete.
Alice Barnett has soloed in a glider for the first time on August 5th! Great job Alice! What is Carl doing with that bucket full of water? Huh, must be to clean the Blanik...
Here, one of our instructors, Phillipe Heer, congratulates Brad on his first solo. Great job Brad!
Uwe Prigge (on the right) passed his Certified Flight Instructor - Glider check ride today with DPE Gregg Squires! Please join me in congratulating Uwe.
Alice Barnett soloed last weekend in the Blanik, with Stefan Murry observing. Way to go Alice!
What is Carl up to under the wing? That can't be a bucket of water, could it?
Jason Bridger successfully completed his check ride with Gregg Squires and received his Private Pilot license - Glider - on June 10. Congratulations, Jason!
On April 15th, I made a time-lapse video of the clouds. These clouds are the result of rising air. We use this rising air to gain altitude in our gliders and stay aloft for hours.
Excited to report that I got my 5 hour Silver Duration flight last Sunday in the Ka-6!
Here is a photo of Steve landing in David's beautiful JS1 on Saturday. Steve went around and past College Station on his flight. There were great soaring conditions here just outside Houston this weekend.
We had a great Saturday last weekend with 12 introductory flights and two new members getting instruction. All the people that took the introductory flights had a blast! Come on out (when it's not raining <sad face>) and experience one of Houston's best-kept secrets!
