Arlington Airport Appreciation Day 2014

For the 2014 Arlington Airport Appreciation Day on September 20, Evergreen Soaring displayed the G-103 Twin Astir and explained the basics and finer points of soaring with the visitors. Local families who attended told us about watching Evergreen gliders fly over their neighborhoods heading toward the AWO landing pattern, and were eager to see one up close. Many children, and a few adults, were able to sit in the cockpit and get a view from the pilot’s perspective. We also had three walk-up demo rides. Appreciation Days is a useful public relations opportunity for Evergreen Soaring. Thanks to the club volunteers who helped with this event: Movses Babayan, Austen Pyle, Makoto Saito, Kevin Baker, Russ Lee, Heinz Gehlhaar, Marty Gibbins, Paul Adriance (demo instructor) and Lawrence Pavlinovic (demo tow pilot).
