Sunday flying

It was good conditions for flying on Sunday, I had instructor duty and picked up one of the students in the morning and then we drove to Sundvollen. It was light snow and a little gusty northerly when we came, but it calmed down so both students got 3 flights each. I flew the Aeros Target for the first time, nice beginner glider. Solid on launch, not as tail heavy as the older LaMouette Atlas models. In the air it was responsive in roll and pitch, but no yaw tendencies and nice and stable in turn. Plenty of bar pressure when i tried a dive, but I’m spoiled by a comp trimmed Litespeed, so I guess it’s the way it’s ment to be. Landing was easy enough, but I was suprised I had to run it in after flaring, maybe I was too lazy.

The wind came around WNW, and It became soarable just as it got dark. Can’t have it all :-)

Very good to be back in the air, have not flown since beginning of december. The salmon at Vik tasted very good after a long day outside in the snow.

Bjørn took this picture of me coming in on final, knee-hanger harness, and 4Fight helmet, heh.
