  • Lancaster Area Soaring Society Aerotow - August 24-26, 2018

    Posting on behalf of the LASS Club (I am not a member):

    Lancaster Area Soaring Society Aerotow is set for August 24-26. Located in the middle of beautiful Lancaster area farm country! 534 Greystone Road, Manheim, PA 17756 USA

    Lunch will be available at the field. Camping is available at the field, but there are no hook ups and no fires allowed. You can keep track on Facebook under the LASS group of Club Events......Landing Fee is $20.00. Event will be on the south field -- the one closest to farm market.




    Tow planes and pilots are needed for the event, so if you tow please bring along your tug. Len B, Steve P and Don C. are confirmed to tow right now.

    There will be no towing with Amish horse and buggy. Sorry.

    Team JR Air ............You can't buy happiness. But, you can buy a sailplane and that's pretty darn close.

      Unfortunately, this event falls on the same date as my 50th class reunion...a milestone that I do not want to miss. Have a great time everyone, see you next at Muncy.

        The Lancaster sod farm is awesome! Even I can land on the grass there! 😂

        Unfortunately, I can’t make that event, but will be attending the Muncy event in September. I’m sure the Lancaster event will be a great time. Have fun, everybody!

            Tow plane update as of 8/14. The LASS club does not have any of their own tow pilots/planes. Many of the usual travelling tow pilots have other travel or vacation plans, so the event will not have the typical tug air force to which we've become accustomed. Here is the current list I could glean from looking at the registrations...

            Len - Čmelák w DA150

            Steve - Bidule 111 w DA100

            Don - Pilatus Porter w DA120

            Joey M - AMR 50 w ??

                FOR SALE AT LASS... I have a beautiful plane stand that needs a new home. All hardwood, sealed with poly. Folds for storage, adjustable arms to hold fuselage, shelf for storage, work surface with lip so tools don’t roll off.

                Happy to entertain any offers. I can deliver at the Aerotow this weekend. Just send me a private message if interested.
