Torrey Pines Fun-Fly/Swap Meet Feb 16th 2013
TPG is hosting the 2013 Torrey Pines Fun-Fly/Ratings day out at the bluff.
********UPDATE - We'll be having a Swap Meet too!**************
As many of you know, each year pilots wanting to fly Torrey are required to renew our City Waiver documentation for the Gliderport. Additionally, if you're interested in flying at Torrey and haven't gotten your rating yet this is a great opportunity to fill out the paper work and get checked out and rated for the year. Come on out and see me or one of the other check pilots and we'll take care of you. Of course there are some other items to take care of before you launch into that beautiful coastal scenery and you can find out more here: http://www.torreypinesgulls.org/flyingtorrey.htm
The last two years were great events with lots of food, friends, and flying and I hope you can make it to this year's to help make it better than ever. Check out this flyer from last year - http://www.torreypinesgulls.org/Torr...Report2012.pdf
Here's the info:
Where: Torrey Pines Gliderport
When: Saturday, February 16th, 11ish...Late morning/midday...when ever the wind comes up!

Cool! I'm in! Actually sent in my membership dues yesterday, and of course am a current AMA member too.
Hopefully I can qualify for a "novice" rating... be gentle on me!!
This is going to be a dream come true... Torrey is like Ellwood on steroids

The ratings are determined by aircraft type, not pilot ability. Review the paperwork for the various ratings here; http://www.torreypinesgulls.org/flyingtorrey.htm
Herr Slope Coordinator Pismo will have these forms onsite the day of your rating flight.

"Foamies with wingspans up to 60” and weighing less than 35 oz. with two-axis controls."
Crap my 17oz 60" foamie has 4 axis controls. If I promise to not touch the left stick, can I still get a No-Vice signoff?

Here's a few pictures from past years events, just to whet your whistle:
