Life is About Experiences-Brian

I went to Pitt Meadow at 7:30 A.M. to go gliding from my cadets. There were officers from cadets and people who owned a license for gliders. It was a warm and windy day with the sun shining in my face. I could smell the stench of feces near the grass field. I drank water to stay hydrated, because the weather was steaming. There awaited a yellow glider that I got to glide in. I got ready to get in the glider when I met a person who controlled the glider. The red seat belts tightly squeezed against my body and I barely moved inside the glider. The officer hooked a long rope on to the glider connecting it with the light aircraft. When I got in, I heard the engines of the light aircraft and the glider was going into the air towed. When I got in the air the enormous buildings and moving cars looked like a busy swarm of ants. After, the light aircraft unhooked the glider and I felt the wind slashing against the glider. The glider flew up to 2000ft and while going down, the person in the back controlling told me to try gliding. As soon as I put my hands on the joystick of the glider, I felt the glider falling towards the ground. Then, the licensed glider took control and started gliding again. After landing on ground, I got in the light aircraft with three other people. I put on headphones connected to the base. I heard voices and people contacting each other to stay informed of which direction the light aircraft was heading towards. The aircraft had gone higher than the glider and I was able to see more landscapes and buildings. The aircraft flew over Riverside Secondary School. When we got back to Pitt Meadow, we landed and safely ended the ride.
