Second Annual Commander's Glider Weekend

Second Annual Commander's Glider Weekend


On September 17 and 18, 2016, the Mississippi Wing of Civil Air Patrol conducted its Second Commander’s Glider Weekend at Central Mississippi Soaring Society in Pisgah, Mississippi.


L23 Glider with Tow Plane

During the weekend, twenty-four (24) glider orientation flights were conducted.  Many of these were “first flights’ for the cadets.  The wing is planning to hold another glider weekend in the spring and fall of 2017.  It was an excellent opportunity for cadets to experience the joy of glider flight.  Many cadets brought their parents and siblings to enjoy the event and watch them fly and work the ground team.  In addition, some new glider and tow pilots were welcomed to the Wing.
