Ed Levin park, 9am. 0-5 mph NW. 80°F.
Wally (my instructor) explained the equipment and basic principles, showed me how to preflight the glider and how to launch and land. I made a very short flight (20 seconds?) from the 40′ hill, a second off the 50′ hill and several failed attempts. I was overheated by afternoon and we called it a day. I got a very good vibe off Wally and schedule another lesson two weeks out, my next break from work.
0:01 40′ hill, reverse launch.
0:01 50′ hill, reverse launch.
