Floating and hanging

Nov: Consensus of the instructors and rec.aviation.soaring comments is that you can't do this in a Blanik unless you have a lot of room to float. Someone pointed me to an FAA bulletin that clarified that you don't need to land without brakes. I pointed this out to the inspector and he agreed. But then I had three weeks when I could neither practice nor take a Friday off for the test.

Then after Thanksgiving I called back and T's retiring! He pushed me off to R. I called him the next week, and he pushed me off a bit. He wants to have another guy work with him on my test for training purposes. So we're tentatively set for Dec. 16 or 17.

Also studying the PW5 manual and the Transition to Single Seat book.
