Speaker: Herb Kilian (J7)
Report of a perfect soaring vacation with the ASA (Auxiliary-powered Sailplane Association) in Parowan UT and thoughts on why we sometimes seem to get lucky. There will be some slides and videos from this OLC camp as well as discussions of specific flights and the major routes that are flown from this location. OLC - scored glider camps seem to get more numerous and attractive every year. This presentation is intended to help you having a great time.
Speaker: Herb Kilian learned to fly gliders on the Ith mountain in N. Germany in the 1980's and relocated with his family to Raleigh NC in 1987. Now living in Downers Grove IL near Chicago, he flies with the Chicago Glider Club and competes in Regional contests, on the OLC and the local season-long N. Illinois Soaring Contest (NISC) that John Cochrane has been running for some time.
Meeting topic may change without notice.
