Recent amendments to aerotowing procedures in the UK require gliders of certain aspect ratios to be towed with a 50:50 bridle and trolley launched only.
The AirBorne Sting 3:168, with an aspect ratio of 5.7, falls into this category.
This is my first aerotow in this configuration.
Thanks to Stewart and Cathy of Flylight Airsports Ltd for taking the time out to set-up the glider and get me up in the air again!
