Thanksgiving Fun fly / aerotow


This Saturday, Nov. 18 we will have our last scheduled event for 2018 at the Grantsville Flats. We will be serving a Mountain Man breakfast at 9:00 AM with hot Chocolate. Mike Gibson will be there with his tow plane for anyone who wishes to Aerotow, please bring whatever you want to fly, hand launch, electric sport, ALES, bungy launch, whatever.

The weather will be a little brisk 34F, but warming to 45F , sunny and light winds, 4 MPH starting in the south and switching to the north by 2:00 PM. Dress accordingly, we will keep the hot chocolate going.

I will also send out a Email to the Silent Flyers address. Please spread this around and let us know if you will be coming for breakfast so we can plan accordingly.

Aerotow canceled

All This Saturday's aero-tow will have to be cancelled due to a high probability of rain tomorrow in Grantsville as well as expected cold weather, barely getting above freezing by noon.

Please spread the word, I will also send out a Email.

Hopefully we can reschedule the first weekend that looks more promising.

The forecast for sat in Grantsville is a high of 41, much of the aero-tow would take place in freezing, or near freezing temperatures.
