New Protocal for Instructors


Fellow Pilots and Free-Flight Instructors,

We are writing this letter to make you aware of changes to the site protocols at the Andy Jackson Airpark.  We are making these changes to align with the new insurance requirements for instructors.  The specific changes to the protocols are included in this mailing with the changes highlighted in red.  The changes can be summarized in four categories:  individual pilots, instruction without compensation, and instruction for compensation.

Stepping Down


CSS Members,

I am stepping down as President of the Crestline Soaring Society.  New circumstances at work have made it impossible for me to give this job the attention that it deserves. You are in very capable hands with the other board members who will continue to ensure we have a safe and fun place to fly and keep our airpark, as my good friend Randy likes to say, the friendliest LZ on earth.

Internet WX Forecasting Class


Next Saturday, Mar 5 at the shade structure 9am. I will bring a large screen TV and computer to conduct a weather forecasting class.  Want to know a week ahead of time when the big days are coming? Like the old adage says, "90% of the game is just showing up". Knowing when to show up is 10x more valuable. Spot the good days, the great days, the best day of the year and the 'too good' days of late summer.  Free, like a great soaring day, to whomever shows up!
