Mitch Polinsky: Soaring Like a Hawk

Mitch Polinsky (left) and Tom Hanagan (right) at Four Wheel Campers

I heard a rumor that you got Tom Hanagan, the President of Four Wheel Campers, interested in soaring.  Is that right?

Mitch: I hope so.  I became very friendly with Tom as a result of my purchase of my Hawk camper, and we exchanged lots of stories about our respective adventures; his scuba diving and my soaring.  He seemed very interested in my gliding activities, so as a thank you for all the attention he gave me during the process of buying my camper, I gave him a gift certificate to take an introductory glider ride with an instructor at a nearby glider airport.  He told me he enjoyed it a lot and is even contemplating taking soaring lessons.

TCM: Is there anything else you would like to add to your interview that I may not have asked you?

Mitch: I would love to help other people who want to try the experience of gliding.  Feel free to email me as I want to encourage people to learn the sport.  It’s a phenomenal experience!  My email address is: [email protected]

TCM: I bet some of our readers will take you up on your generous offer.  It’s not everyday that you can learn about gliding from a Stanford professor!  Thank you, Mitch.

Mitch: You’re welcome.
