Glider Ops – Sunday 05 November 2017

Weather permitting*; Civil Air Patrol, Los Alamitos Glider Training Squadron 41 will conduct Glider Winch Launch flight operations at JFTB Los Alamitos on Sunday, 05 November 2017.  We will be hosting Chino Cadet Squadron 20 for O-Rides.

Note that Daylight Savings time ends Nov 5, so there will be no more glider operations at SLI on Tuesdays until it resumes on March 13, 2018.

Glider preparation will start Sunday morning at 1000 PST or earlier, on the ramp just south of the CAP offices located at: 3976 Constitution Avenue, Los Alamitos, CA 90720. Glider Winch Launch flight operations will commence as soon as practical thereafter.

The Last Glider flight of the day must be on the ground by 1545 PST, or 15 minutes before the tower closes.

*Weather Permitting: Glider Flight Ops require visibility and safety.  Ops will be cancelled due to low visibility (fog or low clouds); or if winds greater than 20 knots (23 mph) are reported; or if lightning strikes or rain are observed within 10 miles of Los Alamitos JFTB.
