Logan Mountain Flying Camp - Sunday - First day report

Pilots arrived on time for our early 9am briefing and classroom session.  We went for 3 hours.  Yes, painful but we covered a lot of content about flying in and around the mountains.  Everyone seemed to be engaged in the discussions and Tim Taylor (TT) did a masterful job of helping to explain how to get up and fly the Logan area.

We launched somewhere around 40 gliders into a sky filled with cirrus and cu's.  About halfway into the launch we received a pilot report of a glider down on the side mountain 2 miles to the east of the airport.  The pilot of the downed glider was able to call us on his cell and give his status and location.  He was airlifted off the mountain to the local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  Our thoughts are with him and his family.

Mountain flying is an incredible but unforgiving endeavour.

We may have some weather coming through tomorrow that may limit our opportunities to soar.  We will see.  The weather for the rest of the week looks very promising.
