Crestline weather for the weekend

Oz Report - Fri, 30/09/2016 - 14:28

September 30 - October 2

Friday: Onshore winds and flyable with nice thermals to 6K or 7K.

Saturday: Continuing flyable with lift a bit lower in height, but base wind slightly stronger than Friday.

Sunday: Morning low clouds will burn to a sunny and soarable day to wrap up a triple-header soarable weekend.

What's not to like about that?

Have a great weekend!

Rescission of Authority Under Tandem Exemption

Oz Report - Fri, 30/09/2016 - 01:30

The USHPA writes:

Effective September 27, 2016, and continuing until further notice, USHPA has rescinded its authorization for any pilot to conduct tandem flights pursuant to FAA Exemption 4721 when those flights are performed in connection with Air California Adventure, Inc. dba Torrey Pines Gliderport (whether as an employee, contractor, or in any other capacity).

In addition, USHPA's Tandem Instructor Certification is not valid for tandem flights taking place at Torrey Pines Gliderport or performed in connection with Air California Adventure, Inc. dba Torrey Pines Gliderport (whether as an employee, contractor, or in any other capacity).

USHPA’s decision is based on the following:

ACA's failure to provide USHPA with accident reports for all accidents occurring during 2015-16.

ACA's failure to cooperate with USHPA in investigation of accidents during 2015-16.

ACA has ceased issuing USHPA 30 day student memberships to participants when conducting tandem instructional flights.

Under FAA Exemption 4721, all participants in two-place flight must have a pilot rating issued by USHPA.

ACA is conducting tandem flights that do not comply with all of the operating conditions of FAA Exemption 4721 issued to USHPA for tandem instructional flights.

document.getElementById('img_##').style.height='360px'; document.getElementById('div_##').innerHTML=document.getElementById('link_##').innerHTML; function func_##(o){o.onclick='';o.innerHTML='';}

New private launch. Made record open distance beach flight in Ecuador of 25 kms to San Vicente airport. Thanks to Pete Stromberg of Canoa Suites for letting me fly this beautiful site. Inland behind the beach are thousands of acres of rare virgin tropical forest with howler monkeys and other beautiful wildlife and majestic Ceibo trees.
