Let’s Flatten The COVID-19 Curve Together
We hope you and your loved ones are staying healthy as we do all we can together to stay whole. A big thank you to everyone in health care working hands on in the trenches to help those in need. These heroes are working long hours with risk to their own health. Huge gratitude to those working at grocery stores interacting daily with so many to keep us fed. Thanks to everyone making a difference in this fight.
Eagle is committed to flattening the curve. We are currently not scheduling any new training or tandems. We will tweet when we occasionally open Eling’s Flight Park for free flying. Since ride sharing negates social distancing, there will be no van rides back to launch. Plan on kiting or hiking your glider back up the hill if you couldn’t connect for a top landing. Keep social distancing in mind when you are at Elings Park.
Our service and repair shop is in full swing. Our staff is taking extra precaution wearing latex gloves while laser trim tuning, Inspecting and repairing gliders, and repacking reserves. With limited flying right now, it’s a great time to get your wing’s annual inspection and/or a laser trim tuning done while you are at home.
Let’s all practice vigilance and bring the day we move past this health crisis closer with our actions and choices. Anyone with extra Medical Supplies to donate to those in need can utilize the Drop–Off Zone at Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital.
