ESC Flying weekend

Here is some pics of our time at the Edmonton Soaring Club. There Les Oiland maidened his Phoebus C after its new paint job. Peter Miles worked on his glider pilot conversion and soloed. Congrats! As for myself. I had a 2.5 hour flight with my ASW 20C touring the countryside. Lots if fun by all!!
