Touring Motorgliders - Fun, safe, and economical. They provide opportunities for cross-country soaring, simulated off-field landing practice, expedited training, and are suitable for club operations.
Roderick Read began taking lessons when he was 12, and soloed a Schweizer 2-33 at 14, earning his private glider certificate at 16, and added a power rating in his early 20s. Roderick's main glider flying career began after he moved to Switzerland in 1988. He began flying competitively in 1997, winning various competitions. Roderick has flown extensively in the Swiss and French Alps, and Germany's Black Forest region. He is a U.S. and Swiss CFI-G, and holds all possible glider ratings, including IFR, aerobatics, TMG, etc. He was a member of the Swiss National Gliding Team and accumulated 3,000 hours during 20 years of flying in Europe, flying a K-8, LS-4, LS-6, LS-8, Duo (club ships), ASH-25, and owns a Nimbus 4DM and a Libelle H-301. Other than instructing and flying at the Chicago Glider Club in Minooka, he also instructs in Skill Aviation's Diamond HK36 Dimona (motor glider), located at the Waukegan Regional Airport. He's been a member of Chicago Glider Club since 2007.
