Daniel Sazhin has been flying gliders since 2008 and loves racing and record flying.

After being encouraged and mentored by his club, he actively flew Aero Club Albatross’ 1-26E and earned all of his badges and diplomas in it. He has competed in 12 contests, winning a 1-26 championship and had the honor of flying on the US Team in 2015 as part of the Junior Worlds in Narromine, Australia. Seeing, first hand, how well team-flying worked in the Worlds, he is very excited to further develop and build upon these techniques. Daniel recently earned a degree in Business from Pace University and is planning on going to grad school to study Behavioral Economics. . Daniel recently completed the first ever 1,000km in a 1-26, earning a World Record – an astounding feat.  The US Team welcomes his experience.

Melanie is strictly ground crew (N1K), but is an avid lover of the sport.  She is the ussoaringteams.org web master and loves new ideas so feel free to ask questions, offer suggestions, and give her additional content!

    Howdy,

    I just received a copy of Condor’s rendition of my 1-26E #573 “Old Paint” 3D rendered by Bob Hills of PSS and extensively photographed and measured by me while it hung in my basement. I want to thank Daniel Sazhin and his club, and the use of the paint scheme for their contribution to the effort to get a 1-26E in Condor’s upcoming new plane pack. It will be a thrill flying my old friend if only in a simulator. I am so glad it is finally finished. I’ll send a picture of “Old Paint” as it actually looks for your amusement. It would not have been very pretty if they tried to copy my paint job. That’s why I call it “Old Paint”
