    Good training to be sure. @lfitz3 trained me over and over again on engine outs. Had mine cut out once on a solo flight and the training took over. Priceless

  • Ken commented on a video something from training

  • jeff trike added a video 20170721 Sangre de Cristos
    I took off at 1 minute after civil twilight on a 3.8 hr flight to Angel Fire, CO. First stop was an early morning flight over the Sandia Moutains, then over to Sante Fe Baldy, at the southern end of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. From here I hopped...

  • The app has two ways to set options 1) you can toggle the units (metric vs ft etc) by touching the text displays for alt, ground speed etc. 2) activate a "secret" menu button try a long press on either the "back" or the "open tasks"...

  • https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.eb.ohrh.parawind.free&hl=en I downloaded this app and took it out for a test flight this morning.  It is fantastic.  It was developed by a paraglider pilot, but works great on my...

      The app has two ways to set options

      1) you can toggle the units (metric vs ft etc) by touching the text displays for alt, ground speed etc.
      2) activate a "secret" menu button
      try a long press on either the "back" or the "open tasks" buttons.
      On my phone they are at the bottom, outside the screen.

      Once you get this open, you will see a screen that says
      "Set Destination", "Clear Track", "Help", "Settings"

      Under "Settings" you can set
      glove control
      preferred orientation
      full brightness
      don't dim display
      map type (normal, sattelite, hybrid, terrain)

      configure (which goes to a further screen)
      estimated airspeed
      altitude correction
      full screen mode
      high contrast mode
      vario settings
      metric/english units flag
      Airspace Configuration (this one will display airspace on the map)

      you can download Openair Airspace files into your phone
      set your browser to http://www.soaringdata.info/aviation/airspaceTab.html
      Then download the Openair format files for hanglider/paraglided/ultralight pilots
      I tried the other one and it crashed the paraglider dashboard app but was able to
      recover by clearing the data for the app.

      If you are outside the USA, you can go to https://www.xcsoar.org/download/data.html
      and look for the Openair airspace format file for your region. Looks like the whole world
      is covered.

      After downloading the Openair files, press "browse" under "Airspace Configuration" to load

      Yes shelton thanks for correcting me leo . I couldnt remember.  I will make note of polsen we also have plains and it has water. Lets just keep the ideas rolling.

      Whew, thanks, Shelton I know. Lived there and flew out of KSHN for 17 years. Only problem with western Washington is lots of rain and fog. August often the best month for flying but you can still get rained out. Now you know why I retired to Texas. Chelan might be a better weather choice.

  • Jozinko added a video something from training
    He was quite good, then I decided to simulate him lost of engine power after take off. As you can see he did two mistakes very shortly step by step. Because the view to the approaching ground is terrible, he decided push the bar out. I had to...
