Volunteering with Hood River Soaring

IMG_0052 IMG_0042

I have been helping out at the airport a lot recently, mostly assembling gliders. The first glider I helped assemble was a silent2 electro, it’s a high performance electric self launch glider. I also helped with a schweizer 2-33 training glider the the glider club recently purchased and with a schweizer 2-32 that was donated to the club-it is a three seat tour glider. A highlight was meeting Jerry Wenger, a well known glider pilot who has a collection of antique gliders. The pictures are of one of his gliders. I enjoy being a part of the glider club and getting to be around other people with the same interests as me. It’s fun just to hang out at the airport and I am getting to do that a lot more now that I am starting to get to know more people.
