We woke up today to bright blue skies without any showers expected in the task area. This should be a better soaring day compared to the first 2 days.
With daily first launch times expected to be between 11:00-11:30 am and the pilot briefing at 10 am every morning, time is very limited after the after the 10am meeting. Therefore, the US Team has it’s morning huddle of the pilots and crews to discuss insights from the previous days flying, any issues, review initial weather for the day, and discuss the daily tasks (which are released daily by 9:15 am) before the 10 am briefing just outside the main hanger.
At this point, the soaring is looking very good through the end of this week. Pete Alexander
