my flying page

I am a power (SEL) pilot and a glider instructor (CFI-G). I fly mostly at Caesar Creek Soaring Club (Ohio), one of the best clubs in the country. I am tow-pilot one day a month (at least) and teach one another.

I give rides many weekends during the summer.

 I have had several soaring flights of over 6 hours (after a release from 2,000 ft.) and have flown out about 90 miles and back. This was in a Grob 103 which flies at nearly 40:1 glide ratio.

I have made 85 sky-diving jumps ; 35 at Waynesville (Ohio) Skydiving.

I have also flown ultra-lights and hang-gliders.
