Glider pilots swoop into Cottonwood airport

Last weekend, people targeted Cottonwood from the skies and descended on the town.A motorized glider sits parked at the Cottonwood Airport on Thursday, June 12, the first day of the Touring Motor Glider Association fly-in. The crafts all can fly up to altitude on their own, rather than having to be towed, and then turn the motor off and glide.

It wasn’t dangerous, however, as everyone came to have a good time.

Members of the Touring Motor Glider Association flew into town last weekend for their sixth annual gathering.

The group is international and chooses a different place to meet every year.

The members are all connected online but get together whenever possible to show off their gliders and tour part of the country from the skies.

Motor gliders can take off under their own power and then switch off the engine and eventually glide back down to Earth.

Some members of the group came from as far away as Florida and Maine, a trip of several days floating through the skies.

For the full story, see the Wednesday, June 18, edition of the Cottonwood Journal Extra.
