Tow Pilot Awards

Gliders need tows, and we have a dedicated team of tow pilots contributing to our operations.  At the awards ceremony, Ty Sibley recognized two pilots in particular.

  • Joe Wampler - 911 Tow Pilot Award
    "because he is always available for short notice tows and steps up when other tow pilots can't."
  • Rick Kemper - Top Gun Tow Pilot Award
    "for having the most tows out of anyone in the tow pilot cadre."
