With an Introduction by Stoney

The Air Sailing Board of Trustees considers safety to be our most important priority.  For this reason the Trustees have established a Safety Committee to monitor and address issues relating to safe operations at the gliderport.  Listed below are the current members of the Safety Committee.  Individuals who wish to provide comments to the committee are encouraged to contact the chairperson.
