Glider Ops – Tuesday, 8 May 2018 ??

We are unsure of what will transpire on Tuesday May 8th as we are awaiting further information on our glider.

Due to a hard landing on Tuesday 17 April, glider N2037T is out of service until some relatively minor repairs are made.  We will be launching again as soon as we have a functioning glider.
