Looking at the XCSkies and Aviation Weather, it looks like a good weekend coming up. However, ...........(Here insert the usual prognostication excuses if the weather is unsoarable. and crappy.)
If all goes well, our ASK 21 will be flying and we can all get get a flight in the newly refinsihed beauty.
Please be extra careful with the pristine canopies of the ASK 21. They are beautiful, let's keep them uncracked and unscratched. If you don't know how to clean them, get instuction and help. Don't raise or lower the canopies using the edge of the windows. Use the canopy edges and canopy latches. Canopy cost and installation is about $4,000 per canopy. Be careful opening and closing the windows.
To extend the service life of the L13AC beyond its current 2000 hr limit, it is essential that our logbook entries contain a particular breakdown of its usage. To this end, I have sent a memo to all FLSC members. Please read it carefully.
Just a reminder that a workday at the Club is planned for Sunday March 24. The primary goal is to get the gliders ready for the upcoming season. We hope to have our mechanic, Ray Chapin come to FLSC a few days later, to finish up the annual inspections.
Hopefully, enough members will show up that we can also straighten up the hangar.
Note: The Pawnee annual inspection should be completed today, and the Citabria will be flown up to Williamson to begin its annual.
