The National Soaring Museum is proud to announce that soaring legend George Moffat will be the keynote speaker at the 29th annual Ralph S. Barnaby Lecture, to be held in Wichita, Kansas on November 3, 2001.  His topic will be Changes in Soaring Competitions Over the Last Thirty Years. 

George Moffat is uniquely suited to discuss sailplane competitions, and he sits at the top level of achievement in motorless flight.  His legendary soaring career started in 1958, and he began competition flying in 1960.  Moffat has set several international sailplane speed records and in 1974 became the only pilot ever to have won the World Open Class title twice, having won it the first time in 1970.  He has captured virtually every major class soaring championship available, including the U.S. Standard, Open and 15-Meter Class titles.  He has authored numerous soaring-related articles for national magazines, and wrote the book Winning on the Wind.  A recipient of the Lilienthal Medal (1977), Moffat was inducted into the United States Soaring Hall of Fame in 1963. 

The NSMís 29th annual Barnaby Lecture will be held at the Wichita Marriott Hotel, and is hosted by the Kansas Soaring Association.  A tour of the Beech (Raytheon) Composite Facility is also scheduled for November 3rd, prior to Moffatís speech.  Please contact the National Soaring Museum and the Wichita Marriott Hotel for further information. 

February 7-9, 2002  plan for the SSA Annual convention and Air Sport Expo at Ontario, California.
