Congratulations to Phil Chidekel and Richard Kellerman as both had G-Cup completions yesterday (June 9 2017) - flying Schleicher gliders at the opposite ends of the performance spectrum - ASH 31Mi and ASW-15.
The day looked great from the ground - but was a challenge for both pilots ... here is Phil's account and flight trace. The launch point was Morgantown Airport.
"The day started out with towering cu that threatened to OD, but scattered out into clouds that were *just* close enough for an ASW-15 flying into the wind. Overall, a very fun--yet extremely challenging--flight. Thanks to Forrest for the tow, and Mike for letting me fly CT."
