The CHGA and Supine Flying

click picture for full size image

Supine means flying in a seated harness with your feet stretched out in front of you. It is very comfortable. Being seated while driving is a familiar position to everyone. The CHGA has 4 pilots who fly in this position, probably more than any other club in the US! If you would like more information on Supine flying, or any other CHGA topic, then contact any CHGA officer.
