The ESA Western Workshop '22 is on!

The Experimental Soaring Association's annual Western Workshop will be held at a reduced scope due to COVID-19.  The workshops will consist of informal open air gatherings and some presentations on Saturday Sept 3, 2022.  All events will be at Mountain Valley Airport (L94) in Tehachapi, CA and all events will be free of charge. We expect there will be a number of hangars open and available for viewing of the sailplanes and projects based at the airport.
