Going to Vittorio Veneto

 

After a short briefing today morning we drove from Meduno to Vittorio Veneto. Our plan is to fly from Pizzoc take off today. This high point of the Italian Southern Alpine ridge faces SW and allows to get up straight to the cloud base as the spot appears to be a local "thermal kitchen". The cloudbase is predicted to be quite high for this area -- 2000 m and the W-SW wind will support our task to fly from Vittorio to Meduno today. So we are getting ready, sky looks good!

Evening in Meduno

 

 

Quite a successful task today with half of pilots in goal. Some parts of the flight were quite tricky but also rewarding for those who managed to get high enough to fly with the clouds!
