The other five pilots caught up with Phil and made their first flights today. Now we know exactly what mechanical challenges remain. Sean found out that his wheel brake needs some attention, and Bill thinks he may have a small rigging asymmetry. Sarah, Tom, and Peter have only a few very minor issues.
In the air at last

We had a Team cookout at the estancia where the Standard Class contingent is housed, about 15 km north of here. It was a nice opportunity to get off the airfield for the rest of us.
We expect to be ready to fly on all three of the remaining practice days.
