13.5 Meter Super Regional - March 28, 2nd contest day

Looks like Steve Arndt is taking a commanding lead having won 2 consecutive days.  4 of the 5 gliders completed the task today. Once again they flew an assigned area task to Chalet Suzanne, Green Swamp and return.  Tonight we were treated to a presentation by Morgan Sandercock about the status of the Perlan Project.  This project plans to send a manned glider to an altitude of 90,000 feet.  The challenges are daunting from many area viewpoints such as aerodynamics and physiology.  Morgan is project manager and one of the research pilots.

See ya at the (space?) gliderport,

Wes
