Ridge Soaring Examples From The Real World


Recommended Posts

Pretty much like the Wanaka Race! Red-line flying.

That remembers me of our early TWIN ASTIR with retractable gear. Had this in our club from 1972 until a few years ago. I always knew that being originally intended to become jet fighter. Once I flew an old PAX with it and returning to our aerodrome dissipated the surplus altitude in a top speed final down to 100 ft in the downwind andf then pulled up for the base leg again.

I had wondered all the time, why my passenger didn't suffer from airsickness at all. Now he said:"That was great, just flying me the ME109 in WWII, could you repeat?" Well, there are certain differences ...

Cheers, Peter
