Our April 28th Young Eagle event dawned with a bit more wind than we would have liked including a forecast for stronger winds as the day progressed. We initially launched a couple of initial flights to determine the turbulence conditions. The pilots said that while it was a bit bumpy they would continue with Young Eagle flights. We were able to complete 25 flights before pilot fatigue, turbulence and crosswinds forced us to terminate flying for the day.
We will be flying the remaining registered Young Eagles on Saturday, May 5th beginning at 8 am and just before our monthly scheduled Chapter 1361 Meeting.
If you couldn’t make it out to Stead last Saturday or didn’t get your flight completed please come out to Stead on Saturday and join in the aviation excitement.
