On the Way to Gorham

Last Friday, on the way to Gorham, Rick and Tim (ferrying the towplane and L-23) stopped in Franconia to help Mark with his first flight in his Discus.  Mark took a high tow and made a beautiful landing about 45 minutes later.  On Saturday Mark made a 3 hour flight in his Discus.  Judging from his smile on both days, I think he is hooked! - Tim

First solo for Henry

Congratulations to Henry Swayze on his first solo today!  Here's a picture of Thomas and Henry just after Henry landed, and just before sunset.  Thomas and Henry both left work at the last minute in order to make this happen.  One less pre-solo student for Thomas. Yay!
