Lt. Gen. John Dallager 2304 Cadet Drive Suite 342 United States Air Force Academy USAFA, CO 80840-5001 Dear General Dallager: We, the officers and members of the 1-26 Association, wish to express our sincere gratitude to you, to the Air Force Academy generally, and to the staff and cadets of the 94th Flight Training Squadron for hosting the 2002 1-26 Championship Soaring Competition at the USAFA Bullseye Auxiliary Field. The contest, conducted between July 1 and July 11 of this year, ranks among the most successful contests of our 34 year history of 1-26 National Championship events in terms of efficiency of operation, safety, spirited competition and, equally important, great social interaction. The success of the contest can be attributed to the outstanding management exercised by Col Hal Hoxie and Major Clem Countess, and the dedicated effort put forth by the members of the 94th FTS. As you may know, this was the second 1-26 Championship contest hosted by USAFA, the first having been conducted in 1981 on the site of the 94th FTS at USAFA. It too was a very successful event. I believe that these events, as well as the participation of the USAFA cadets in our annual Championship contests, produce significant benefits to the Cadets, the Academy at large, the 1-26 Association, and the Soaring Society of America. We sincerely hope that the Academy will continue to encourage the cadets to participate in our annual contest. The participation of the cadets undoubtedly has great impact on the young people of our country who may see soaring as a step toward a flying career in the Air Force, and it will undoubtedly promote interest in aviation careers among the young people of our country. The 1-26 is undoubtedly the safest single place glider that might be used for basic and cross-country training. The Schweizer Aircraft Company design enclosed the cockpit with sturdy construction to protect the pilot. As a sailplane, its performance is not impressive, but as a training machine, particularly for cross-country training, its safety record is unassailable. Although the fleet of 1-26 gliders is aging, the aircraft is tough and remains one of the safest gliders available. Its durability makes it an excellent training vehicle with a low maintenance history. Therefore we believe that the Academy would be well served to retain the few Schweizer 1-26 gliders that augment its current fleet. Again, I wish to thank you personally for permitting the Academy to host the 2002 Championships, and I wish to thank the management team and staff of the 94th FTS for their fantastic efforts. Additionally, I wish to thank Mrs. Kathy Hoxie and Mrs. Lydia Countess for their efforts in promoting the social activities of the event, which contributed greatly to its overall success. We will be looking forward to the continued participation of the Cadets in our events and hope that you and the staff of the Academy will host another 1-26 Championship Contest in the future. Thank you. Sincerely, Clayton W. Vickland President.

Clearer skies clip wings of glider pilots

Competitors grounded again at contest on Air Force field

Tim Tadder The Gazette

Jim Walker points out a "sniffer," or a glider used to test flying conditions, to competition director Tom Holloran at the 1-26 Association Championships for glider pilots at the Bullseye Auxiliary Air Field near Ellicott.
By David Philipps The Gazette

For glider pilots hoping to race through the Colorado sky, Sunday was a disappointing day.

The pilots, contestants in the 1-26 Association Championships, a national competition for gliders, spent the day searching for cumulus clouds in the sky over the Air Force Academy's Bullseye Auxiliary Air Field near Ellicott.

But the clouds never came, keeping the gliders on the ground.

The cotton ball-shaped clouds are a sign of rising hot air masses, called thermals, on which the gliders can soar.

But the only clouds in the sky were thin veils of cirrus clouds.

"Come on cirrus, vamoose! Get out of here!" Stephen Michalik yelled at the sky as he sat in the shade of his plane's wing.

After waiting a few hours, Michalik, who drove from Oklahoma, settled in with his crew, hoping the proper clouds would form as the day heated up.

Until then, Michalik said, "There ain't nothing to do but sit and cuss at buzzards. Everyday they get to practice. I envy that."

The competition is devoted to the Schweizer 1-26, a vintage glider that has not been made for 30 years.

The pilots from around the country have seen a mix of good and bad weather during the soaring competition that started Wednesday. Sunday was the second day they'd been grounded.

Because glider planes have no engines, they are at the mercy of the elements.

Once they are pulled by tow planes to a height of 2,000 feet, the gliders release the tow rope and sail through the air, with the pilots looking for the cumulus clouds that show where the air is rising.

Hot air can come from a dark-colored field, a patch of trees, almost anything, said Randy Rothe, a soaring instructor at the Air Force Academy.

"There's a new Safeway in Falcon with a big black parking lot that heats up really well," Rothe said. "We'll circle over it and gain several thousand feet."

Riding the thermals, a glider can stay in the air all day, traveling hundreds of miles.

"It's you and Mother Nature together," said Jim Walker, a veteran pilot from Colorado Springs. "That's what makes it exciting."

Only two scout gliders, known as "sniffers" because they search for good thermals, were towed and released Sunday.

They headed off into the sky and soon were as small as swallows.

The pilots on the runway gathered around radios to hear the report.

It wasn't good. Everyone packed up for the day, knowing they will return.

The annual competition, which is held in a different location every year, runs through Wednesday.

No Fly Day
No flying on Day 4. Sniffers Tom Pressley and Hal Hoxie flew 13 and 15 min, respectively, under overcast skies and intermittent rain. A steak dinner at the airport in the evening capped off a needed rest day.

Sunday, July 07, 2002
No Fly Day
Sunday was another no fly day. The sniffer turned circles for over an hour waiting for the cirrus to dissipate, to no avail. The weather reports for the final three days are looking promising.
