Training at Poteau Airport

Dave Orchard started his P1 training at the Airport and progressed rapidly.  A rock climber, he quickly picked up the skills to launch safely, fly a course, and land on his feet!  His progress during his 8 or so flights was amazing, a complete natural to our sport.  Congrats on a good day of flying!
