On Saturday the Utah Soaring association gave rides in one of their gliders using a winch to launch. The event was held at the Nephi Utah airport (U14). The event was designed to entice people to join the club. I have to say that it worked really well at least on me. I have been trying to find a Sonerai to sate my flying addiction but i came to the reluctant conclusion that i didn't have enough money to buy and fly. But i do have enough to join the club and fly so got to do a little more homework on the club but i think I'm going to join.

I was grinning from ear to ear after the flight. The launch was exhilarating. Can't wait to do it again. Here's a video a club member made of the winch launch: [video=youtube_share;VrUTjWEfbcI]https://youtu.be/VrUTjWEfbcI[/video]
