Thursday September 19, 2019 Mentors Bill Cummings and Robin Hastings went to The Mesquite Exit on Interstate ten for Ben Stembridge to take his first foot launch flight from a hill. He is a Texas tow pilot and has a lot of tow flights posted on YouTube. He has his flying and landings down real good and wants to add launching from a hill and next a cliff.
We didn't have the camera on for his first flight but it was exactly like his second textbook launch, flight, and landing that we caught on the GoPro.
