“The sun is shining and the weather is sweet.” After four days of bad weather the sun came out and the weather is beautiful. Michael Sigel, the GIN test pilot has won both tasks so far.

On the penultimate day of the Rat Race in Oregon, Andy Pag talks to Swiss pilot Michael Sigel about beating the Americans on their home turf and the Boomerang 9.

Plus: Nick Greece leads a panel of experts in an impromptu Q&A on launch (with Josh Cohn, Michael Sigel, Marty DeVietti and Eric “The Badger” Reed); and Kari Castle talks about how women pilots learn and compete.
