More thoughts on landings

The last post was basically a description of the weekend's flights. But what did I learn? What do I think?

Out of my approximately 130 flights so far, only 7 or 8 landings have been on an asphalt runway, although we have one at my home field. I think our training should include runway landings, but it doesn't. That's partly because my local field's rules require students to land in the dirt, and only private pilots and the commercial pilots of the FBO may land on the runway. I think we should address this with our club board and the gliderport operator.
