Re: soaring safety with at risk pilots/passengers/students in the covid-19 era

All glidingclubs (and sport clubs in general) are not allowed at the moment in the Netherlands so most fields are closed.

Re: soaring safety with at risk pilots/passengers/students in the covid-19 era

i was surprised to see a dozen older men flying but they were all flying their own planes (it was a totaly blue day and although it seemed like it would be a decent ridge day don't think it worked out that way) i don't think aca or jersey ridge soaring were operational, but they had a tow pilot and ...

soaring safety with at risk pilots/passengers/students in the covid-19 era

I know most comercial operations are most likely on shot down or minimal operations (was sure nice seeing some gliders in the air while we pulled old 217 out of her trailer to put her shiny new wings on) at blairstown last saturday but we fly with a mostly 'at risk" population, with many pilots/inst...
