DETAIL OF THE THERMAL COURSE
This stage is destined paragliders with good autonomy and having validated the initial pilot's license.
It aims to discover and understand thermals and then to use them to climb to the ceiling. This is how you can attack the paths to increase the duration of your flights. We will also discuss during this course, the following topics:
- on the analysis: Aerology of the reliefs of the flight zone, Where to stand, When to move
- on the mind: How to manage your affect in thermal flight, how not to put yourself under pressure, to fly with pleasure
- on the theory: Life and Death of the thermal, how to observe, mechanics of pendulum movements in turns, piloting in turbulence, advanced weather.
1 instructor for a maximum of 4 students.
Mastering flight in varied aerology (thermal, dynamic), developing active piloting, mental analysis, meteorological/aerological analysis (use of analysis tools), and thus validating the technical and theoretical parts of the Pilot's Certificate FFVL.
Our philosophy of the thermal course :
Theoretical content :
- Weather report
- Aviation regulations
- Theoretical and technical work on pendulum mechanics in thermal and dynamic flight and pilot action.
Practical content :
- Typographic reading, flights on different sites .
- Wing speed range and management of different angles.
- In-depth meteorological/aerological analysis
- Manage your safety: ensure your placement, identify "cows", analyze, anticipate...
- Debrief his flight: understand his mistakes, refine these choices, set a line of work, broaden his vision,
Flight exercise :
- Mastery of placement in thermal and dynamic operation
- Start the paths
- Work on rapid descent methods
At the end of the day and at the end of the training, DEBRIEFING!!!
know how to take off/land easily
master at least one rapid descent technique (360, ears accelerated...)
be able to dampen pitching movements and control rolling movements
be able to identify "pitch" and "dive" movements
Making flights last is the goal of many pilots! As soon as one flies in varied aerology, it is necessary to perfectly master all the basic techniques. This is why we have based our pedagogy on the progressiveness and the validation of stages to learn how to have fun without being afraid.
