Training week "Fly Safe"

Flying safely is important to us. Only if we fly safely can we enjoy our hobby with pleasure and stress-free. But what exactly does safe flying mean? From our point of view, it means mastering our glider as well as a forward-looking and tactically clever flying style.

This begins with good preparation and includes choosing a safe route during the flight. This requires a plan and skills in case you find yourself in a critical flight situation. This includes fixing collapses and other canopy malfunctions. In extreme cases, a simple thought pattern must be in place to quickly decide whether to pull the rescue or not.

How do you learn all this? The requirements described for a safe flying style require a holistic approach. We’ll be working on the topic for a whole week. We discuss the theory and practice behavior with increasing escalation levels: 1. Prevention, 2. What to do if the unwanted still happens and 3. When nothing helps anymore.

We cover in detail: Safe flight route selection depending on the weather (leeward, windward, venturi, glide angle, turbulence, washover), off-site landings, cloud flying, material (harness adjustment) and flying techniques (active flying, control technology). To do this, we train various descent maneuvers, how to react to collapses and how to deploy an emergency parachute. To do this, we fly one or two training sessions over the lake.

As usual, we design the program to be flexible, meaning we practice the individual content when the weather conditions are ideal. Every day we focus on a learning goal and deepen it with specific flight assignments. We use the diverse flying sites in Central Switzerland.
