Second phase SIV/ACRO clinic

Brad Gunnuscio is back in Hawaii to host another SIV/acro clinic here on Oahu. Bad Brad, as he is known in the acro world, is one of the world's best SIV instructors and one of the top acro competitors in the world, and he's finally come back to Oahu this weekend for some fun with our club.

We will host the event starting April 26, 27, and 28, with rain days the 29th and 30th. I will have a boat in the water for pickup wherever we end up, Makapuu or Kahana Bay. Brad will be staying here all week.

Since we're not boat towing, it should be an amazing weekend with lots of gliders in the air. I will be assigning wing numbers to tell the students apart, and we'll be using FRS radios. We'll have several sessions in the morning, land the pilots, and hike back up for more in the afternoons. You're not gonna want to miss this one!
