Great day slope flying on Maui

Today (Sunday) was one of the few times I've been out flying in the last 12
months and it was great! The wind at Camp Maluhia was averaging 18 M.P.H
gusting to 25 M.P.H. Everything flew today from foamies to 4 meter scale
ships and even a beautiful Wizard Compact. The lift was excellent and fun
was had by all. I was able to fly my Lucky and get that trimmed out as with
my reconditioned Quick Silver and JW. There were no crashes or mishaps and
that always make for a great day. It was sunny all day and temps were in
the mid eighties.



Just another beautiful day in paradise.



All the best,



Al Battad - WH6VE

AMA #506981



BTW, mahalo to all the pilots that made me feel right at home today. The
aloha spirit lives on.

RE: Great day slope flying on Maui

Al, you flew a Quick Silver at Maluhia? Wow, you must have great eyes!
Anything smaller than 60" specs out for me before you get out over the
lift band.

Wishing I was there with you, and I really mean that!

Cheers,

Nathan Woods
