Training Dave in Minden NV

After the delivery flight from Florida, Dave started training in his new plane. First of all, he was happy that this was a motorglider which easily fit in his 40 foot hangar without the extended wingtips on. Plus, at a little over 700lbs, it is easy to roll in and out of the hangar.

One interesting way to get in some landing practice is by circling Lake Tahoe and landing at Carson City, Reno-Stead, Truckee, Lake Tahoe, and then back to Minden. Here we are passing by Emerald Lake.

Practice shot by holding the camera outside the window. I had the camera strap around my wrist.

Passing by Heavenly Valley ski area on the way back to Minden. This whole area is out of this world beautiful. Thanks for taking me on this little tour Dave, and making me wonder why we live in Florida instead of here!
