Pre clinic skills development
Superior performance is the result of performing well in many different areas. However we can’t master every aspect all at once, so we need to focus your development on the skills and qualities that will make the most difference to your XC performance.
Our pre clinic exercises will help you to think about, then rank several flying skills for their importance in XC performance. We then help you to assess your current level.

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!
Confidence in your ability to make and execute decisions and in doing so perform well.
