Almost any pilot can improve their thermalling skills and these weeks will help you do just that! In either the French Alps or the striking volcanic landscape of Tenerife, we’ll be aiming to have you at cloudbase as often and as much as possible!

The week covers:
What is a thermal, where to find them and how they behave?
How to stay in them!
How different weather and landscapes affects thermals?
Pitch control and active flying – putting your glider in the right place at the right time!
We may go cross country on these weeks, but the primary aim is to get as much airtime as possible.
