Almost 1000ft gain in 3 turns – it is not worth to stop in anything when you’re high

Almost 1000ft gain in 3 turns – it is not worth to stop in anything when you’re high


I think I am not going to thermal under this cloud, I’ll take next one. Altitude is quite good. Unless it is going to be 4-8kts, then I would stop. 121, 121, 121. Next cloud is going to be mine. 4kts… 5kts… 6kts… 7kts, 8kts… It would be a pity not to circle in it. Come on, 8kts thermal, quite decent! 3m/s on average. It is worth to stop, next cloud looks similar. I think that airspace start just above me. I have to be below 5500ft AMSL Daventry CTA 5500′ AMSL. So great! I am not going to stop under next cloud. Pity, ‘coz this cloud looks good too. Ooops. There is big sink is too.

    I would do if I had more time. Notice that my speed was rather quite slow, just above 40kts. Not enough for 45 degrees turn.

    I wished I were flying faster before that thermal, so I could make longer climb in such good thermal.

    Pomarzyć zawsze można… w młodości wychowałem się na książkach Meissnera, uwielbiałem "Trzy Diamenty". No cóż, zdrowie nie pozwoliło na coś więcej niż czytanie… czy symulatory. Przynajmniej można sobie popatrzyć na filmy 😉

    Pozdrawiam.
