Our Presenters are Steve Leonard and Sean Franke.

Steve's experience in collecting a fleet of vintage and historic sailplanes can be used to inform you of the perils and processes of buying a used sailplane. Whether the glider has a Standard or Experimental Airworthiness certificate, is currently flying, a small project or major project or the type to just-walk-away from, Steve has seen a lot.  Steve has 33 gliders tucked away. Steve is a second generation soaring pilot, and currently Towplane Manager for the Kansas Soaring Association, Director of the Wichita Soaring Association, and a Trustee for the National Soaring Museum. He flies from Sunflower Aerodrome in Kansas.

Sean Franke is our other speaker for tonight.  Sean is the CEO of Wings & Wheels Soaring Supplies and is the American representative for HpH Ltd. glider manufacturer.  From these roles, Sean can outline new factory purchase processes, and the business of advertising your used glider for sale.He is a third generation glider pilot who soloed at age 14. He has flown National soaring competitions since 1990, holds eight State and two National soaring records. Sean has finished in the top ten at two World Gliding Championships. He competed in the Club Class World Gliding Championships in Slovakia (2010), Argentina (2012) and Finland (2014).
