Back in the air
We (Free Flight Sports: Mike Bomstad, Tony Policani and myself)
took Wills Wing up on an offer to show off a Sport 3-155 demo. We even got to
order the specs for it. During the manufacture of the glider we drummed up area
pilots for possible demos. One pilot in particular, Leon Murphy, was keen on
getting back into the sport after last flying his fixed wing Exxtacy in 2010 -
and the Sport 3 was on his 'short list' of gliders to learn more about.
By the time the shipment of the Sport 3 arrived Leon was pretty keen on S3s
having read/seen all the flight reports regarding the Sport 3's excellent
handling and light weight. Leon was enthused enough he helped Mike and Tony in
unboxing and setting up the S3-155 the day it arrived.
WW dealers must test fly shipped gliders (a definite plus) and Mike and I were
itching to do so. We both had nice flights on the S3-155 at Tekoa Mountain (our
flight videos are also on YouTube). Next was Leon's turn to demo the S3. That
occurred on 10/1/18. Long story short, Leon liked everything about the glider!
So much so he bought the 'demo' from us that evening at our local USHPA Chapter
meeting. Looks like we might need another demo! I know I liked it well enough I
may get one in the Spring myself!
