Since 2012, nearly a dozen Sunnysiders have, in the immortal words of John McGee’s poem High Fight, “Slipped the surly bonds of earth” in a sailplane (glider) as the guest of Jim Kellett.  Of course the pandemic put a stop to that!  But the club where Jim flies has been conducting limited operations in recent months with strict COVID protocols in place (e.g., no non-members allowed to fly).  Their safety procedures change as the situation changes, and at the moment there’s the possibility that non-members may be allowed as passengers as soon as May, and quite likely the restrictions will permit that by mid-summer, at least for vaccinated passengers. So, if you’re one of the ones who were thinking about this little adventure, drop Jim a note to Jim@Kellett.com for more information and/or to get on the list.
