Spring Flying course for Norwegian pilots – Bassano, Italy

27 – 30 March

Course description:

This introductory flying seminar aims foremost at developing good climbing skills, probably the key ability to solid XC and competition flying. In a number of lectures the course addresses its two essential aspects:

  • i) the meteorological side, which is understanding how and where thermals form and rise
  • ii) the technical side, which is developing the proper technique for efficiently circling in lift

The lectures are complemented by practical hints and instructions before take-off and after landing as well as a lengthy de-briefing where tracklogs of the day would be analyzed.

We would all meet Monday, 26 March, 19.00 at Tilly’s Locanda (bar) for a first welcome drink, and then take it form there.
