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.

Club promotional flyer is here:


Mike Havener, our Chief Instructor and former Club President, on Saturday Oct. 7th officially earned his FAA Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE) qualification for Gliders. This is a tremendous accomplishment, and is a testament to his depth of knowledge, experience, and fortitude. This is also a real plus for our club: to have our own DPE!

Pete Schutte achieves both his C and Bronze Badges

Pete Schutte had almost everything completed for both his C and Bronze Badges.  All he needed to wrap things up were the observed landings required for both and we were able to wrap those up today.  Then he completed the Bronze Badge test and now he has both his C and Bronze Badges.  

This is a noteworthy accomplishment and Pete deserves congratulations for his achievements.

Awesome job Pete!
