As the temperature drops, we soar! First semester is almost over but EUGC flying definitely isn't. We will continue to fly over the winter season as long as it stays dry.
We had some great trial flight weekends this semester, and while new members can join at any time, our attention is now shifting toward the real business of the club: teaching people how to fly.
Gliders or sailplanes are aircraft with wide, fixed wings. Thanks to rising air, a glider with one or two pilots can silently soar for hours, play with clouds and travel long distances, out-climbing the strongest birds. Gliding is a safe and affordable way to fly, both competitively and for fun.
