Flight Of The Day!
Date: 3/19/2017
Pilot: Nate Santee
Glider: SGS 2-33A, N2488W

Description:  The last flight if the day turned out to be the best flight.  Nate and his CFIG took a 3000' tow and found the narrow band of lift that let them punch through the inversion.  Once on top, while it wasn't great lift, it was going up all over the place.  Nate got to 5900' msl before haveing to litterally land the glider down before the setting Sun and incomming marine layer, practicing stalls and flying with full spoilers just to get down (just before sunset) for a 1 hour 24 minute flight.

Awesome flight Nate!

Checkout our Youth Program.

Did you know that 14 year old Students Pilots who meet the requirements and have the authorization from an FAA Certificated Flight Instructor, Glider can Solo a Glider? That's right, the FAA recognizes that young people who apply themselves and recieve the appropriate training and exhibit the skills and judgment to do so can fly a glider by themselves 2 before they cn drive a car alone.

LESC wants to foster this and has created a Youth Program where young pilots can earn while they learn. For each day they work the line, helping other pilots launch, recover and move thier gliders on the airport, the student will earn a free lesson and tow.
