Grob G103 Twin II Sailplane

CSA Grob G-103 having fun in the winter The "Grob" is mainly used by CSA members for one to two hour afternoon soaring flights within 15-20 miles of Owl Canyon Gliderport.  Many times members will take family, friends or other club members on these flights.  It is also used for advanced and cross-country training of club members.  Many of the scenic rides given to non-members are done in the Grob.  On occasion the Grob is disassembled and taken to other airports, usually in the Colorado Rockies, for members to enjoy the excellent varied soaring conditions available in the Colorado area.
