Flying with Frank

I worked as a flight instructor and tow pilot last week at Seminole Lake Gliderport. SLG cranks out new glider pilots like you've never seen. Frank and I worked together for the week, culminating in a glider rating added to his power certificate. He is interested in buying a motorglider, so he came to Melbourne afterwards to get his self launch endorsement and check out the Phoenix. He was not disappointed.

We saw the Goodyear blimp out over the ocean as we cruised the beach.
