100 Hours

I just updated my logbook spreadsheet, and noticed that my last flight took me to just over 100 hours.

That may not sound like a lot compared to what power pilots rack up. In gliding we do a lot of short flights. A half hour to an hour is typical for a gliding or soaring flight. The "pattern" flights during training, rope breaks (emergency landing practice) annual checkrides, etc. really bring down the average, and my occasional 2- to 3-hour cross-country flight does not offset them very much. I have a total of 227 flights, for an average of about 26 minutes each.
