Post Club Pilot, Simon Gorringe 7 hrs at Mount Caburn.

Here Simon Gorringe (on blue glider) is learning about thermals, where they are, how to find them and use them, notice the other red glider stays close to the ridge. Simon is pushing well forward and finding thermals away from the ridge, in order to fly cross country you will need to fly away from the ridge lift. This sort of flying normally takes place at 100 hrs post club pilot. Simon has chosen the Tandem Fast Track approach. At 7 hrs Simon is the equivalent of a pilot rated pilot. The syllabus of the BHPA to Club Pilot does not cover 360, thermal activity. "Download wide screen of this video"
