    2018 - Good Finish

    Happy New Year!

    As we file away 2018, it is fun to remanence about the past even as we are looking forward to 2019.

    Some interesting numbers from 2018

    2734 glider flights from WSC (multiply that number by 4 to reflect tow plane and glider launch/landings = 10,936 operations at WSC)
    • 1227 Dual
    • 876 Solo
    • 349 Private
    • 9 Retrieves
    • 185 Rides
    • 88 Checkrides/BFR's


    Glider flight time totaled 1947 hours and 50 minutes

    Flying 224 days, closed 103, and shut down due to weather/smoke 38 days that we would have been open.

    Vacaville Aero Services has done 136,155 flights since 1983 (Lagoon Valley, Vaca Dixon, Williams) That is over half a million operations.

    Thank you for your patronage over the years.

    Kindest Regards
    The Mayes Family and WSC Staff

    Thanks for sharing those stats Noelle. Q: Are aero-retrieves counted under the 9 retrieves?

    Yes 9 total ground and aero retrieves.

    6 Aero and 3 ground
    4 Aero retrieves were on the same day June 16th (2 from Willows and 2 from Orland)
    2 of the 3 ground retrieves were the same pilot.
