Yes I should have made more efforts on the video ending, I just knocked the video out after work. ( I was very tired being out in the sun past 4 days, UV stronger higher up)
With the glider un like a sailing boat you can fly into wind if you wish, the next video will feature more about the why's and hows to do.
Local pilot flew from a site Devils Dyke to a Brighton football stadium and then back to Devils Dyke over the weekend.
So the gliders in a bag like mine are 9 kg, we often fly distance and catch a train back, however as gliders over all performance has increased over the years. We can now fly say 20 to 30 km and back to site.
But many pilots regular fly over 100 km's and some !
Air space charts and vario's are a requirement due to air space issues, we cannot go much higher than 5,500ft above sea level around here.
Mind you I find I have to switch on my heated gloves at this point.
