HC 2024

We recently concluded our unique and thrilling Highland Challenger, a week-long event that took place from June 1st to June 8th. We had three perfect days out of the eight. This year, all the good days were triangle days except for two beach trip days, which were too windy for me. If you want to rea...

We had 6 great days out of 9 days. Even Wednesday was great, despite the smoke. It seems like the first week of June always works here. Plenty of landings, flat, low crops. The unbelievable flight today with low savers, birds helping me get back up, then sea breeze, cruising down on a conversion for...
