Additional Event Information & Acknowledgement of Industry Sponsor(s):

This is part of the monthly webinar series sponsored and presented by the Soaring Society of America (SSA).

Cindy Brickner has been a soaring pilot since the late 1970's, and a towpilot since the 1990's. She has aerotowed mostly, but is also ground launch and self-launch qualified. As a twenty year gliderport operator, she has seen a few aerotows gone awry. She will recount some of those misadventures, and be certain to offer her teaching techniques to enhance the safety of the towing staff.
