Teaching Kelsey Pearson to Fly

Steve Pearson, co-owner and glider designer at Wills Wing since the 1970′s, brought his daughter Kelsey to learn to fly with us this past summer. It was a huge honor to train Kelsey. Steve could have chosen anyone to teach Kelsey and he picked us. Steve sent us this video of Kelsey’s experience. Thanks Steve, Lisa and Kelsey.
