David Wheeler has a US based SPOT Messenger and Delorme inReach tracking site
what can we work on?
The ability to locate, track and climb well in thermals both alone and in a large gaggle
Brian, Barb, Phil and Chris,Thanks very much for the course this weekend. Your advice, support and skill has lead to what I hope is a big step in my progression and something that with hindsight, I had underestimated the importance of.I’ve been reviewing my footage, and on the last tow I managed 10 stalls and two spins at the top of the box.I went from sloppy, physically demanding, all over the shop, stalls, to clean entries and exits that involved little or no ‘sorting out’ (aka; twisted reverse spirals).Probably most importantly, I’ve developed a new level of respect for my wing and harness, that I think will make me safer into the future.Forecast tomorrow looks excellent!
The conscious decision to be more or less conservative based on observation and situations.
The ability to launch in a variety of conditions, getting into the air when required.
Confidence in your ability to make and execute decisions and in doing so perform well.
