After a gap of almost three years, finally got back to #Sailplanes :) There is something truly special about #soaring through the skies with nothing other than the sound of the wind over your wings. Most Powered #pilots are a bit apprehensive about flying something without engines and getting only one chance at landings (No Go Arounds), but to be honest the Takeoff is the hardest part in my opinion, as you are getting towed behind an acft and since the #glider has a lower stall speed you become airborne first. You then have to keep it in ground effect and lift off synchronised with the #towplane :) Today I am happy to have become the 49th member of the #TreasureCoastSoaringClub! Now if I could only find some #thermals .... #Gliders #Flying #ChasingThermals #Sailplane #Aviators #LetsGoFlying #NoEngines #Schweizer #Aviation
The plan in front is towing us like we're going inertubing. I was surprised how strong the mountain waves were. Leaf in the wind. Thanks for the flight @ty_gunnlaugsson #towplane #playgroundearth #mountains #pilot
Towing #gliders is one of the most demanding #flying I've done. Not only you have to be watching out for yourself, but for the glider and their performance requirements. It helped keep my flying skills proficient.
Glider planes have no engine so they have to be towed by another plane. We got released at around 4000 ft. I Will show that in the next video. So technically.....I was flying inside a kite 🤔😂 LIFE.

I miss going on crazy flying adventures with @adamtopgunogilvie! This was taken on our sunrise flight to breakfast a few years ago. #Formation #flying came easy after #flying #gliders behind a #towplane for so long. #sunrise #aviation #adventure  #colorado  #explore #boulder #diamond #DA-40 #breakfast

Our tow plane. Can’t really tell but there were three hot air balloons too! #firstgliderflight #firsttimeforeverything #glider #gliders #towplane
Glider towing can be fun. It requieres airspeed control, readiness, rudder finesse and of course flying a #taildragger.
Low 70’s and a Pawnee... it could be worse. Today wasn’t the busiest day ever, but still a lot of fun to tow some gliders! If you’re looking for a thrill in Houston, come learn to fly with us; you’ll never be the same!
Tow plane likes to drink a lot of delicious and expensive gas, but she's too cute I can't say no to her. 😂💰⛽ . . . #plane #fuel #gas #petrol #aircraft #towplane #cute #expensive
