Tandem XC, pilot with pilot

A XC tandem flight with Brian Webb or Andrew Horchner. Hands on flying with one of the most experienced local pilots.

An opportunity to fast track and share in the decision making that helps better XC.
Experience how another pilot considers the day, how he decides which direction to fly and what he looks for in the clouds, on the ground and in the air.

Participate in thermic conditions, enjoy a spiral, perhaps a deliberate collapse, ask all the questions you can think off.

Some of the skills and topics discussed include:

  • Thermalling better
  • Energy lines for gliding
  • Concise decision making
  • Observation
  • Using gaggles

Full retrieve and transport provided

Costs

The flight and debrief costs $250. We expect to fly for an hour over the local source and trigger terrain

With prior notice these “pilot with pilot” flights are available daily, conditions permitting
