Meeting Topic
Two Topics!
Sky Soaring Winch Update
Glider Oxygen Systems

Speakers: Doug Tarmichael & John DeRosa

Synopsis: Winching - Sky Soaring began thinking about a Winching system in 2015, purchased equipment in 2016, began launching in 2017. But in 2018 things have really began in earnest with multiply flights and a rigorous training regiment. Learn what Sky Soaring has created with the help of many local, national and international hands in the mix. Its been quite a ride!

Synopsis: Glider Oxygen Systems - With limited space and potentially long flights at high altitude, glider oxygen systems can be rather simple or electronically complex. Its all about how long you need to stay aloft! Learn about the various types of systems available and how technology can prolong your O2 supply.

Please Note: Meeting topic may change without notice.
