Grob 102

Saratoga Soaring's newest addition, Bob DeFabio's Grob 102, had its first two flights as a club ship today. John Chambers had the first flight followed by Darren Danielsen. With great conditions thoughout the day both pilots had great flights. I1, XX, and 68E also flew for hours and, of course, the Grob 103 was busy with Doug in the back seat and Pam, Richard, and Robert in the front. Thanks to Jim, Jim, and Cindy for the tows.

Operations started around 1:30 PM with John and Jim M. enjoying a flight in the Grob 103 that lasted over an hour. Cindy then took a short flight in I1 to refamiliarize herself with the ship. Training then began with Robert, Richard and Pam taking lessons with Jim M. During this period, Cindy took a second flight in I1 and got to 7,500' (she thinks). We packed up and left the field around 7 PM.
