Better Thermal Centering: Leading and Leaching
Bob Fletcher started flying in Doncaster, UK, before university. Since college, Bob has focused more on racing than instructing, flying many standard class national competitions in the US, Canada, and the UK, winning the Standard Class Kubly Trophy in 2006 at Uvalde. He enjoys flying in the western US mountains, especially the area between Salt Lake City, UT, and Bozeman, MT. Bob practices at Greater Boston Soaring which offers a tremendous diversity of conditions and many skilled racers to fly with. When not gliding, Bob is racking up the frequent flying miles, leading the strategy team of an Internet start-up. Earlier in his career he had worked with the FAI award winning Cambridge Aero team on the first GPS flight recorders. He negotiated and co-wrote the original IGC file format with the other GPS manufacturers.
