Towing at New Jerusalem

A couple of weeks ago we had an aerotow clinic, up in Northern California, Dallas came out to instruct there. Since he is a enthusiastic freestyle pilot, and involved in the admin of it, he rallied a freestyle judging clinic. I was encouraged to show what I could do along with a few others, so we could be judged. It was great fun and I am pleased that my first good spin was caught on film. Huge thanks to David Aldrich , RC Dave and Rod for making the trip up from Southern California for this event. It really made the weekend a social scene.

On a heavier note an ultralight pilot and friend to many of the pilots out that weekend was killed when his aircraft broke and chute failed to deploy. Kieth was definitely not afraid of living and it was a harsh reminder of our mortality.
