    Very scenic video Craig. I remember when the USAF sent me to Perth in 1990. An absolutely beautiful city, with friendly people.

    Lindsay Mannix In the early days of mostly self taught hangliding the non flyer personality was sorted out with a broken arm or leg ...now they can be doing 80 knots and a few hundred feet when they discover that they didn't listen or thought they new better. The trainers have an almost impossible job ...Kudos to them . I gave up teaching for all of these reasons. Th fact is that some of us just don't listen or comprehend . But bluff their way through.Let it not be You! At least not today!

    Doug Boyle
    Doug Boyle Just a reminder to all, when you sell a used trike attempt to convince the Buyer how important it is to seek instruction. Fortunately, the incident in Western NC at Foothills Regional airport did not result in a fatality. This 20-year old purchased a stick trike and attempted to teach himself how to fly. It ended in the proverbial "stall on takeoff", leaving the noobie with a broken arm and leg. Apparently, no one was at the airport to counsol him on the mistake he was about to make! He arrived, setup the trike, and attempted flight...."How hard can it be" -- pretty hard when you hit the ground!!!! Let's keep doing our best to save these folks from themselves.

      white eagle I learned a long time ago not to incourge everyone into the sport . But when i find someone is persistantly interested. I always do everything in my power to incourage them to seek out training. Even in far 103. There is no excuse for not seeking out training. The hardest are ga pilots! Glad he will live.

      Paul Hamilton Yes even with advice and strong warnings many do not have the time or money for lessons/training, but they have the time and money to recover in the hospital/home and pay for the trike damage. Better deal for everyone to get training.....

    Robert are you coming to the trike fly-in in Polson, MT next week? If so there will be a few trike soaring pilots there that would be more than happy to teach you a few tricks about soaring, reading conditions, etc.

    Thank you Paul & Henry. To answer your question, Henry, I had several reasons. One is the "can't fly in furtherance of a business" sport pilot limitation. I work part-time in GA aircraft sales and once in a while it would be convenient to give ...

    Good info ted. Having never been soaring I don't know squat about reading conditions. Usually on the ground by 10.

    Speaking of HG, the Weather Channel had a feature this morning on the guys in Zapata trying for a new world record. Hanging in the harness all day averaging around 40+MPH catching thermal after thermal. I don't care if you've flown a Blackbird or ...

    Ted Bailey commented on Jim Davidson's picture.
    W E Personally I think only slower wings have the limited pull-in for thermal flying. With a faster wing it is not a problem. That and soaring a trike close to a stall is a no-no, I thermal @ 45-55 and have no problem staying in the sweet spot of ...
