Preparing for Training
Training is necessarily weather dependent, so please keep in touch with me by phone (voice or text), especially the last few days before the clinic. Note that any weather predictions only start to become reliable 1-3 days beforehand.
Please confirm the location and check with me about the current schedule 24 hours before heading to any training event.

THINGS TO BRING
Please bring good shoes that can grip the grass, with ankle support if you need it. A pair of trail runners is a common choice, as are hiking boots, although heavy boots can be tiring.
Most students use an inexpensive skate or bike helmet (~$25 at Walmart). I'll have comms that work best with helmets that have open ears, but you can use any other type you own (again, heavy ones can lead to fatigue, and you'll want to be able to hear well around you with your helmet on). I'll have a few extra helmets, but likely not enough for the entire group.
Please bring plenty of drinking water, snacks, sun and bug protection, clothing appropriate for running around outside all day, light work gloves, and a phone/tablet with an Internet connection, if you have one. We'll use Internet devices to look at all the ground school documents, weather links, air space charts, etc.
Since we'll be in a field, bringing a light weight seating pad or chair is also a good idea (though not necessary).
I've likely spoken with everyone about bringing the right size engines, harnesses and wings, but please send me your current height and weight, to ensure I bring everything required.
