Flying Walkalong Gliders

I've been flying walkalong gliders for years at the Museum of Science, Boston. How does walkalong gliding work? This method of flying a plane is also called Controllable Slope Soaring. Walkalong gliding is well suited for indoor flight and makes a great science activity for visitors of all ages. It took me several weeks to find areas in the museum relatively free of drafts to fly in and to trim the gliders properly for slow flight so people can keep up with the gliders.
