G'day and welcome to my Soaring blog! I'm a glider pilot and instructor at the Gliding Club of WA, based in the Western Australian wheatbelt town of Cunderdin. I went solo in early 2013 and rapidly worked my way up to being let off the leash to fly cross country. This blog is primarily a personal journal of my notes and comments on the lessons I've learned and my impressions and opinions of soaring flight; although I welcome all readers and comments :)
As promised, here's some footage taken from my most recent flight. I managed to stay up for over an hour in fairly difficult conditions, which I'm happy with. Launch was good, but I'm not as happy with the landing, which saw me let the nosewheel down to the runway a bit too early.
