GF Director 06
I discovered hang gliding at Blue Sky in Richmond VA in 2008. For me the sheer joy and freedom of flying gliders is more liberating than other forms of flying. Ours is truly a lifestyle sport centered on our schools and flying sites. Long live free flying. I am an aerospace engineer and currently work in the building industry in Alexandria, VA. I started participating in sport class competitions with some friends in 2012 and it became blatantly clear than I still had a lot to learn. I still attend a couple of sport class competitions a year and enjoy meeting pilots and honing my flying skills.
