)Flight Instrument FUNdamentals - waypoint flying at Ed Levin
Date: TBD (likely June)
Learn how to use your flight instrument at the comfort of Ed Levin! We'll generate a few easy tasks which can be accomplished on glide from launch and a couple of more challenging tasks. The goal is to get familiar uploading waypoints to your flight instrument, learning how to create routes and then fly the route to tag waypoints, and to help you explore and discover more of Ed Levin!
