Chevron Oil Refinery
I've a vision of a strong play by Chevron for the future of beach hang gliding. One vision has the corporation building a roof over the vista automobile road to become a foundation for an artifical slope for hang gliding onto the El Segundo Beach which is south of the Dockweiler HG Flight Training Center. The roof would extend over a vehicle storage yard that the company has on the roadside part of the beach; their vehicles could be protected from the ocean's salt spray. And a world-class hang gliding slope could become a corporation symbol of their green investment.

This topic invites a tracing of Chevron Oil Refinery and any hang gliding involvement. Employees taking lunch breaks to go take a flight or two from Windsports? Construction of a higher artificial bridge slope for El Segundo Beach? Donations to the Friends of Dockweiler Gliding Society (once we get incorporated in a way that such donation would be a tax deduction)?

So, the deal might be: How might hang gliding help to move Chevron to pay its debt to the Amazonian communities?

Maybe if enough employees of Chevron fly into the sky foot-launching and foot-landing via hang gliding at Dockweiler in a Condor, they might through such activity and experience raise their consciousness and courage to face the equity challenge wrought by their company.
