How to Climb Out In a Thermal

One area Pilots wish to learn is how to climb out in a thermal.

Now I first start with teaching Pilots to 360 in calm conditions and when they are able to progress in this area. I then move into the areas of climbing in thermals.

Take on board that in the video your not able to do what I am doing in one day. So if you wish to learn how to do what you see in the video I would suggest looking at the Pilot Pro Courses I run.

Early Start At Newhaven Cliffs

Some times we start at 7 am why ?

As we fly when the tide is out. So here at Newhaven Cliffs which requires a SSW wind we need to fly when the tide is out.

So being flexible with your time is a very important message to get across for flying pilots.

Review Ozium Death Glide Bar on Dude

Ozium Pod Harness Combo Atlas review

Over all impressions are excellent, the harness with reserve and Gin Atlas comes in at 10.5 KG !

Another key point is the Ozium Harness is much more of a weight shift harness. Only my view but many pod harness's restrict in movement.

So with this new freedom your wing will feel so much more responsive in flight.

The harness has no seat plate however in all of my test flights I did not even notice the seat plate was not there.

It was comfortable and practical as a harness and I think this is probably the futher root for many a manufacture.

If your intersted in buying a combo Ozium and Atlas then give us a call numbers at the top of the page.

How to join a thermal

Flying on a Gin Atlas.

Learning how to join a thermal.

This video will walk you through some of the basic areas of how to join a thermal and follow through into new areas for the new pilot to learn.

These areas your not taught in the school these are post qualified areas and Freeflight Specializes in these productive areas.

Teaching pilots to thermal on your home turf

Learning to thermal in your area is an important part not to be over looked.

Going abroad at some stage in your flying is a good idea but only when your ready. It is far more productive to learn to fly your local sites.

Freeflight operates in many ways one of which is we travel to areas in your location such as Malverns for one to two day trips and guide and teach you there.

We also go to wales and Scotland. So by covering these areas for just a one to two day trip you can easily pop along and get home. If you prefer longer trips we go to Nepal and France, plus Italy now.

Trying to catch that Sea Breeze

Gin Atlas is a ENB glider which is a safe and easy glider to control and fly.

Yet has excellent performance in glide and sink rates, off bar these can match many a ENC glider.

In this video your see this glider working the air out front away from the ridge in rising air looking for the effects of sea breeze.

Conditions are spring thermals at Devils Dyke with airflow from due North with arctic thermals coming later in the day. The brief was meet in the car park at 9.20 am with a brief from Rob Chisholm at 9.30 am. I would give the information with regards to conditions and possible tasks, 9.45 all wrapped up and we needed to move quick as the thermic activity would become bigger later and now was the time to get up and away for our little XC.
