😍 Great place to fly in a glider

Amazing group of pilots and aviation enthusiasts all in one place. After securing him in a harness and placing him in a glider, my son remarked that he was in a horrible state and that it was unpleasant. I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to take the position of him and since I was prepared for it and I enjoy flying. Excellent setting for taking off and landing. Because of the pilot, who was without a doubt the most excellent I've ever had the pleasure of flying with, I got the distinct idea that I needed to do the ground school course again.
Be sure to buckle up and pay the interim club dues before entering the location, in the off chance that you will ever make it there. What a breathtaking view there is to take in from up above.
These gentlemen certainly have a wealth of information in their field, and they take great joy in imparting that knowledge to others. Don't squander such an incredible opportunity.
