Soaring with a SGS 2-33 from Sky Sailing in Warner Springs California. Location Warner Springs, video captured from 6500-10100 feet (2000-3000 meter).
The Schweizer SGS 2-33 is a very typical two seat trainer, most glider pilots in the USA have spend time in a 2-33, this is a light plane and while it have a pretty un-exciting glide performance it climbs nicely, and more important its a very forgiving plane to fly, its also a very solid airframe which can survive endless student landings. These shots were captured from a Grob 103 with a Panasonic SD1 to SD card and edited with Vegas 8 Pro.
