does both the pilot (of the glider) and the pass wear a chute?
are they trained on the use of a chute prior to gliding?
nice images beautiful country side.
thanks for sharing

Yes both wear a chute. The passenger is on a pleasure flight but I don't recall seeing any training pre flight. Probably don't want to frighten the guests off.

Thanks for your comments Bernard and Eric. Must get boring towing gliders hence the magazines. Looks like Andy Murray on the one. I'd prefer to fly than read about him:smile:
