30 Apr 2009 - 23:00

Carlo Borsattino will be heading an informal presentation on leaving the hill for the first time... with the usual audience participation. The new season is just getting underway, and this meeting is directed at those pilots whose desire it is to go XC from our sites for the first time, or those that just need an update. Weather forecasts, equipment, picking your time, airspace; whatever your questions or concerns with "leaving the hill", come and digest some words of wisdom over a beer.

Hands on XC Planning

This is a chance to get grips with various tools for planning an XC. RASP, XC planner and NOTAMs ( to name a few).

The idea is that you bring along your laptop and we go through planning an XC day. Looking at the weather, choosing a site, planning a route, looking at airspace, and downloading the route to your device.

That way you get to work through it rather than just sitting there taking notes. Its a trial run through and hopefully if there is enough interest we can use a similar format for other meetings.

7.30 to 8 will be induction for new members and this will be followed at 8 pm with the coaching evening.

Mainly for newer pilots ( or anyone who wants to turn up - but geared for lower air time). Essentially its an open question evening so you can ask what you like about paragliding and I will do my best to come up with some sensible answers. Anything in particular you want covered let me know. But I will be going over these areas:

Thermalling for beginners.
Getting ready for spring after the winter break
Choosing your site - RASP, weather etc.
