Re: [airtwardo] Gloves?

 Make sure they are thin, and practice your EP's and DRP's on the ground with them on.......

I remember seeing a student show up at the plane one cold day (back in the days of 1 1/2 shot capewells) with a pair of welding gauntlets on....I told him to take them off and I'd replace them with boxing gloves because they'd be warmer.....

He took me seriously for a couple of seconds, then the penny dropped......Laugh

I had a mate in the airforce who used to score proper flying gloves...they were good (and better still they were free, and when worn out he could swap them for new ones).
