I flew my plane for the first time since my catastrophic hangliding accident 9 months ago… here’s a 3 minute video showing takeoff, some highlights of the flight, and my landing.

Grob 102

Grob 102

The happiest day of my life: After more than 10 years of waiting and longing, at long last I have my own plane. She’s a Grob 102 Standard Astir II, a standard class racing sailplane with goodies like retractable gear, water ballast, audio variometer, radio, etc. I flew her two hours on my maiden flight, andI hope to fly her in my first soaring competition over the Thanksgiving weekend
