M-ASA’s new ASK-21s had their first flights today!

 

 

Rich and Danny picked up our new K-21s on Wednesday morning and towed them to W73 before they left for their respective well deserved Thanksgiving breaks.  On Friday, while many were fighting Black Friday shopping crowds, a dedicated band of club members were instead at the airfield getting the K21s ready, and arranging for all the inspections needed. On Saturday N899MA and N899SA received their Certificates of Airworthiness and flew today.  It was not the best day for soaring, but a really good day for the CFIs to get familiar with the the new gliders, their instruments, and get checked out in them so that member flights can start as soon as possible.
