Edouard Devenoges has agreed to run an OO session for those wanting to become Offical Observers and any current OOs needing a refresh. All claims for those highly sought after badges and records that you struggle to achieve must be endorsed by an OO.
(To be an official observer you do not need to be a QGP pilot, but you do need to be a member of GNZ. The newly married Mrs Kim Kamp is supporting Will by planning on doing the course. Genny)
Edouard is the GNZ Awards officer and is the guy that decides whether your claim is good or not, so it’s a good idea to please him. He has a vested interest in getting all claims in the right order and being a competent OO is key to that.
Reserve the date. As has been done in previous years, this is the information and safety briefing for all Club pilots to attend. A short packed morning to inform, motivate and remind all you eager Glider pilots about health and safety. It’s all about having fun in the sky in the safest way. More detail closer to the date.
We’re doing a special briefing session to deal with all those problematic syllabus topics like “air sickness”, “midair collision” and “bale out”. I’ll make sure we have buckets to practice being sick into, and we can run around the clubhouse and bump into each other and fall over to practice baling out.
We’ll have a few instructors present and do various topics concurrently, depending on who needs what. So it would be good if you could let the CFI know ahead of time that you intend to join us and what particular topics you want covered. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org or txt 021 949145.
