F5J Electric Launch Glider Competition or We Donít Need No Winches


All are invited to South Bay Soaring Society's next program at 7:45pm PDT Wednesday, June 13th, 2018 at the main Saratoga Fire Station or join us on GoTo Meeting (see instructions below).

Also, on July 14th 8:00 to 4:00 and the 15th 8:00 to 3:00, South Bay Soaring Society will be hosting an official F5J (class of sailplanes launched by electric motor propellor) US Tour contest at Brigantino Park, Hollister, CA. A practice day is July 13th 8:00 to 3:00, see http://www.f5j-usa.com for more information.

To promote this contest, Francesco will be speaking at our June meeting about all things 5FJ. Francesco has given several SBSS talks on electric launch gliders and model sailplane technology. In this updated talk he will cover information your may need to start and to compete in the exciting class of F5J. He will cover:
  • Setting up an F5J
  • Converting a conventional glider to F5J
  • Strategy for competing in F5J contests
  • Speculation on future of F5J and electric launch sailplanes

Francesco regularly places in the top finishers of local F5J contests (even some European contests) and his technical understanding of gliders, electronics and propulsion is about the best in our club. Please join us for this informative discussion.

The South Bay Soaring Society Program is held every 2nd Wednesday of the month at the main Saratoga Fire Station at 14380 Saratoga Ave, Saratoga, CA 95070 (except December and January).

US Navy P-3 Orion Submarine Chase Plane Adventures


All are invited to South Bay Soaring Society's next program at 7:45pm PDT Wednesday, July 11th, 2018 at the main Saratoga Fire Station or join us on GoTo Meeting (see instructions below).

If you lived in Silicon Valley several years ago, you probably always wondered what those large Navy planes flying continuously out of Moffett Field were doing. Andy Pease will be joining us to talk about P-3 Orion’s anti-submarine mission during the cold war. All they had to do was patrol the Pacific Ocean to find and track invisible submarines. Andy will be talking about the:

Life of a Naval aviator, and how it captures a kid’s imagination
Orion P-3 4-turboprop plane and its capabilities
Anti-submarine warfare
The ditching and rescue of a P-3 Flight out of Adak, Alaska

Noel heard Andy speak at the SAM 21 club and was revetted by his story and thought our club would also benefit from hearing about these naval heroes and their plane.

The South Bay Soaring Society Program is held every 2nd Wednesday of the month at the main Saratoga Fire Station at 14380 Saratoga Ave, Saratoga, CA 95070 (except December and January). The business meeting starts at 6:30pm and the program begins sometime after 7:45pm. Anyone is welcome to attend either meeting and you can bring friends.
