A bit about me - Wayne

About 25 years ago my father gave me a Wanderer, a wooden glider kit, as a gift. Earlier that year, we had watched some remote controlled gliders flying off the California coast, and the seed was planted.

 We slowly built that kit over a period of time and eventually finished it. The glider was loaded up and off we went to fly it at a local park. Well, it didn't last long, and we were soon picking up the pieces and heading home for a rebuild. After a few more attempts, we took it down to the coast and asked for some help from locals fliers. I’ve been flying ever since.

Jump ahead 25 or so years and I still enjoy flying and helping to bring the next generation of pilots into the hobby.

"I've flown a bit of everything, crashed a bit of everything, and repaired a bit of everything. Sometimes that is the way things go."

Over all of these years there has been one constant in my flying hobby, the people! Nearly everyone I have shared air time with has been a warm, friendly and a helpful person.
If I'm feeling down or frazzled by everyday life I know all I have to do is pick up a plane and get a little air time. Even better if I can drag some friends into going, and that usually isn't very hard to do.

See you in the air!
