STICK AND GLIDER
A place for glider pilots, power pilots, and aviation enthusiasts to learn about soaring, flight training, pilot add-on ratings, aviation history, and sailplane trivia. We also look at safety, pre-flight briefing and post-flight briefing.
Stick and Glider created The GLIDER Debrief™ tool in 2020. Check out our store for branded Debrief merchandise.
THE BRIEFING ROOM
The GLIDER Debrief
A good pilot is always learning. A great pilot uses systems to ensure they are performing at their peak. The debrief is a wonderful way to help guide the post-flight conversation with yourself, your copilot, your student, or your instructor. Using the GLIDER™ acronym, pilots of gliders (and other craft) can follow the chronological process of flight to dive deeper into areas of proficiency and others that may need more focus.
Tow to Tango
Most pilots know the importance of rudder control. A special few know what it takes to truly dance on the rudder pedals. Glider and tailwheel tow pilots are particularly adept at this dance; one might even say it takes tow to tango!
What brings more joy to a pilot's heart than reminiscing on days gone by, flights flown, and memories made? We came up with a recipe: a little bit nostalgia, a little bit retro, and some classic lines; perfect for any aviator or aficionado.
