Crestline Soaring Society
The Hang Gliding & Paragliding Club for San Bernardino, CA, USA
The CSS is a non-profit organization (501(c)(3)) which exists to serve the foot-launched flying community in the San Bernardino Mountains - Crestline & Marshall Peak in particular - and Southern California and beyond in general.
We encourage you to come and be a part of one of the premier flying sites the world has to offer.
Hi guys, this weekend the SoCal XC League is putting on an event to support Team USA pilot Honza Rejmanek:
During the day we'll be running a XC/Sprint task (XC task for advanced pilots, Sprint task for pilots newer to cross-country flying). Afterwards Honza will be doing about a 1 hour talk on weather and flow visualization. His description is as follows:
Please join us at the Andy Jackson Airpark for our semi-annual CSS meeting on Saturday, June 6th at 9:00 am.
Agenda will be posted soon.
One-minute video summaries of each day's activities during the WW SoCal Demo Days 2015, as seen from the RanchCam.
Any volunteers who would like to help out serving tacos tomorrow night would be greatly appreciated. Lots to do so the more hands the better. Will be starting to prep work around 4 p.m. call Chris if you'd like more information area code 9255707629
The next five days we will be hosting a group of fellow pilots from around the world. We would invite you, current members of The Crestline Soaring Society to help Welcome all visiting pilots to our flying community.
If you could give a Site Intro, Directions to Launch, Rides to Launch, Cross Country routes, Favorite local Restaurants, local bike rides, hikes, sites to see, etc..
Many people have been asking me what to do around the place to get ready for the Demo Days. I hope that you have heard the great news that Owen and his crew have finished the shade structure at the pond (1 year, 1 month, 1 week and 1 day in the making). If you or your family have ever used the Ranch facilities (including the pond) I thought it would be nice to meet around 9:30am Saturday the 18th with shovels, weed whackers, rakes etc. to do some clean up of the weeds and debris around the Ranch.
Ok CSS members...it is time to start preparing for our visitors coming at the end of April. As you may know Wills Wing has asked if they could hold a Southern California Demo Days starting April 30th with the main event being Saturday May 2nd. What does that mean for our regular membership?
Hi guys, the SoCal XC League is underway for 2015. Like last year we will have two leagues, the Sprint for pilots new to XC or task flying (must have 40hrs and EN-B wing or lower) and the XC league for more senior pilots (80 hrs or more required). The first event will be this weekend at Marshall. On Sunday morning I will be doing a task clinic which helps bootstrap people with the knowledge they need to use their instruments for cross country and task flying. If you want to participate:
