Why fly gliders?
Flying a glider can be a lot of fun. I was actually a little surprised about my first glider ride since it isn’t quite as smooth and quiet as I thought it would be. You hear the wind and feel the updrafts (which you get to like and appreciate later in your glider career).
But after initially flying gliders and motor gliders, deep down I am a motorhead and a rotorhead so in this strip Chuck kinda was me.
Btw: In a helicopter, it’s very comforting to hear the engine roar 😉
