Winter Rust Remover and Sim Night

Last week our club spent an evening where we reviewed soaring checklists and had fun putting them into practice on the sim. The simulator software we were using is called “Condor”.  Many real life pilots use this software to keep in the groove during the winter months.  Fun time by all!
