Comment

An absolutely perfect day in the Owens Valley! The wave was strong and the wind was weak, making it easy to go fast in both directions.

We planned a late launch to take advantage of the conditions reaching perfection in the late afternoon. The SkySight forecast was spot-on with the strength, location and timing of the wave.

Thanks to Russ coming out to help with the launch. Without that extra pair of hands, we could not have safely launched with the gusty conditions on the ground. Thank you also to Tim, who flew the challenging tow - one of the roughest we have ever experienced.

We have a Sage2 clearance with Joshua Approach and a LOA with Oakland Center, which allows us to fly in the flight levels. The controllers knew who we are and what we were trying to do, so they were very helpful today.
