As you all know, Sunflower is for sale. It may sell next week, or it may not sell for years. When it sells the new owners may tell us to leave, or they may allow us to stay. If they do allow us to stay they will probably want significantly more money for hanger rent and facility use than we have been paying. We hope the new owners will love gliders and allow us to stay at prices close to what we are currently paying, but this may not be the case. We have to have a contingency plan in place in case we need to leave Sunflower or can not afford the new owners prices.
Where will we go? We have numerous options, each with it’s own set of plus’s and minus’s. We need to figure out as an organization what we really need, what we want, and what we can afford. I am asking everyone to please think over these issues and e-mail me your thoughts and ideas. Below is a list of topics which have come up in previous conversations. Please comment on these topics and suggest new ones for us to evaluate.

1.) Location - How far is too far?

2.) Availability of hanger space - Do you need it?

3.) Trailer tie downs or storage - Your needs.

4.) Fuel for tow plane - Buy gas from FBO or have our own.

5.) Runway type and length - Hard vs. soft, auto tow cap

6.) Co-exist with GA traffic or have a dedicated Glider Port

7.) Availability of bathrooms, air-conditioned office, phone

8.) Proximity to activities for non-flying family members

9.) Local businesses - Restaurants, hardware, gas stations, etc.

10.) Support of local community.

11.) Restricted Airspace too close

12.) Should KSA build our own hangers? Club house? Airport?

13.) Local Emergency Services

14.) Quality of Soaring Conditions

15.) Cost vs. everything above plus more?

16.) Everything else that ought to be on this list!

The preceding was the Duty Schedule for the upcoming summer. There are towpilots, and line managers, and instructors for the rest of the summer. This same schedule will also get loaded up for on-line viewing and editing at: http://my.calendars.net/ksa Please help us keep this schedule up to date so we can know who to call if our workers aren’t there!


Also please note. Most, if not all, of our instructors that signed up to assist with the weekend training are also towpilots. These guys are doing double duty, and we owe then a HUGE Thank you for all their efforts.
One thing that the rest of us can do to help in showing this gratitude is to help out with doing the simple things, like washing the windshield on the towplane, or offering to fuel the towplane while the pilot gets to stretch his legs. The gliders also spend a lot of time in the bugs and could use a good washing more often than the once a year they seem to get it.
Students, if you can, get to the field early some time and sit in the back seat of the trainers. Then figure out what you could do to help make life more pleasant for the instructors that spend their afternoons back there! Also, part of learning to fly gliders is learning to hook up ropes and run the launch line. If you are up there to fly, but it is not your turn in the plane, please don’t just sit in the shade. I know it is more comfortable there, but we need help out on the launch line. And that goes for the private owners, too. Nothing much more frustrating than seeing one plane about to launch, one on short final, one that just stopped well short, and another on downwind with half a dozen people sitting in the shade and talking.
And for the rest of us, lets all chip in and help keep the place clean. The bathrooms could always use a little help (I will be bringing some hand soap up there this weekend), the grass by the tower could usually stand to be mowed (Pat Ensign has graciously again provided us with a mower. Lets try to see to it that he doesn’t have to spend every Saturday morning riding it to mow that grass!). Have a few older bath towels at home? Would you consider bringing them to Sunflower for our bathroom? Take home and wash the towels that are there, and leave some others in their place.
 

Andrew is planning a Last Chance Ratings Camp October 2-5.  This will be for anyone that needs that last little push to complete a Private, Commercial or CFIG rating.  Please contact him if you need more information or continue to read the variometer. 


John Bender is offering his (slick) Ka-6 for sale for $7500. His ad is in Wings-and wheels. (editor thinks the bird may be at Sunflower)
Ed Limper is selling a hand held radio for best bid over $25. Talk to Frank O’Donnell.
