Hey guys! How is everyone? I just wanted to share what it is like flying gliders! A glider is a soar plane with no engine. I fly gliders on the weekend to build time so I can solo on my 14th birthday! I fly with Tampa Bay Soaring Society out of KZPH and they have a plethora of gliders to fly. I fly the L-23.
There are 5 instructors I believe and all of them are proficient with flying the aircraft. My instructor (Randy) has gotten me to landing the aircraft after 3 tows. I’m at about 10 tows right now and it’s just an experience y’all need to check out. Tampa Bay Soaring Society(TBSS) has a Pawnee for a tow aircraft and does aerial tow. If you guys are ever visiting near Tampa or Clearwater area please visit TBSS in Zephyrhills for an amazing experience.
If you do an introductory flight ask for Randy👍 Thanks guys!
If you guys have any questions just dm me or post them in the comments
