Work day

Although the soaring forecast looked promising, I ended up not flying today. Our club had its general meeting, a guest speaker, and a work day.

We just got our Grob 103 back from some major repairs, so we put the wings on it, taped it up, moved it to a new tie-down, and did some general preparation. The new canopies are blue-tinted. There are still some things that need to be done before it flies, but we wanted to get as far as we could.

I did some other general maintenance on it and the PW5 well into the afternoon. There was lift, and eventually some shear, but it seemed more important to get the work done today. So no flight. Next week I'll be going to a soaring seminar... so maybe I'll fly again on March 31.
