Board Planning Meeting Notes
Dan Thirkill is again putting on series of seminars during the winter season.
Please set aside time to join us for a seminar on Saturday, January 9th on the Westminster campus (Gore Building, Room B134) from 12:30 to 5:00 PM.
For this event, we’ll be covering the following topics:
- An overview of winch operations: A summary review on ‘where we are, how we got there and where we are going’.
- An emphasis on airspace operations: Shared airspace, increasingly crowded skies, and ‘how-to’ communications with ATC. Presentations by members of both the glider community and ATC representatives.
- Cross Country flying. Developing the skills. Tips and guidance for successful cross country adventures. Why Utah is a great place to ‘get out there’.

Mid Air Collision Avoidance Seminar Recap
Recently, USA members Jim Wolper and Ron Gleason attended the mid-air collision avoidance seminar at Logan. The presentation was delivered by local air traffic control. The seminar information was very useful to both glider and power pilots alike. Select the link below for a summary of the event:
The pilot in command has the ultimate responsibility for the operation of the glider. Our club insurance provides one layer of protection and the purchase of a personal non-owner policy will provide additional protection. A limited liability release document is another method to provide yourself and the club an additional layer of protection from legal actions arising due to an incident while flying with a non-club member. The club encourages to use of an additonal non-owner insurance policy, as well as the use of a limited liability document. Click here for an example of such a document.
SLC ATC Documents and Maps
Documents outlining procedures for communicating with SLC ATC and maps for folks to use in their cockpits.
The club is constantly making efforts to better communicate and track maintenance issues with the gliders. We have a new procedure which will go into effect for the 2014 soaring season. document for details.New Flight Log Procedures
In order to better track glider usage there is a new and improved flight log installed in the gliders. Look for a zippered pouch that contains the Flight Manual, Weight and Balance information, the new Maintenance Items Log as well as the new Flight Log. The Maintenance Items Log has the contact information for the glider stewards at each airport the club uses. Also, please continue to fill out the log accurately for each flight. Thanks!
