Almost any pilot can improve their thermalling skills and these weeks will help you do just that! From the French Alps to the striking volcanic landscape of Tenerife or the beautiful South African coast, we’ll be aiming to have you at cloudbase as often and for as long as possible.
These courses are ideal for newer pilots learning to stay up and build confidence in the air, but also suitable for more experienced pilots wanting to build their hours.
We’ll be covering
  • What is a thermal, where to find them and how they behave.
  • How to stay in them
  • How different weather and landscapes affect thermals
  • Pitch control and active piloting – staying safe in thermals
  • Airmanship and flying happy
We may go cross country on these trips, but the priority is to get as much airtime as possible.
