I flew XC yesterday with an aspiring glider pilot and remembered that I had written a document on appropriate focus as part of my running and psychobabble lectures. It now appears on the cross country page and seeks to explain what you should really be paying attention to at various phases of the flight. Enjoy

Polar Curves and Speed to Fly

Lots of new resources have now been posted on the Cross Country page including theory and practical hand outs and lectures on understanding the glider polar and choosing the correct speed to fly between thermals.


Welcome to my gliding site. Please download and use the resources which are all provided free of charge. Look back now again to see if there are new ones that you would enjoy.
