They are one of the few US operations that do winch launches as well as aerotows. A full scale winch launch is the e-ticket ride! Plus, it's usually cheaper than an aerotow.
I'll check it out. thanks!!

I'd love to own a FS sailplane, but a good pilot friend & A&P once told me " if it flys, floats, or fu(!$, it's cheaper to rent than own." He also said that the 2 happiest days of a pilot are when he buys and sells his A/C.
Sounds just like a boat owner
