Russian flying

Oz Report - 5 hours 29 min ago

Movie made by Artur Dzamikhov about Chegem (Caucasus), one of the most beautiful flying places in Russia. The filming took place from 11th to 19th of October, 2014. 140 GB of footage, twenty six time lapses, eight interviews, ten nights of editing, and here is the result. Do not judge too strictly as Artur had only a simple camera, Sony NEX5T and a few Gopros. Besides, this is his first "full-length" documentary. Interviews are in Russian, but mountain views are international.

2015 Tasmania Drifter Tour

Oz Report - 7 hours 34 min ago

http://www.warrenwindsports.com.au/events/2015-tasmania-drifter-tour

Tasmania is a raw flying frontier with many, but rarely explored, hang gliding sites and even more possibilities. We'll be hitting Tasmania during one of the best times in regards to weather and winds, as well as it will be outside of the crazy holiday (January) period. Besides reaching flying milestones, this Tasmanian adventure is aimed at offering a trip of lifetime, with the mission of touring deep into some scenic and rugged areas with the 4x4's loaded up with friends.

The tour will fly mostly in-land sites, along with a couple of coastal ridge/dune sites. If not sure which glider to bring, I would recommend a floater, as it can handle all options. Regardless, be sure to bring a glider that you are comfortable in.

I was examining the numbers of ratings issued and matching those numbers up with members that are letting their ratings expire and I wanted to specifically focus on where (at what hang level) we are losing hang gliding pilots and again open that specific issue up to brainstorming.

The weather forecast looked much nicer for today, and it turned out to be a good Beechmont day. Finally we got to fly with a few clouds here and there, some convergence and also "real thermals" - it's just so pleasant if you can fly a full 360 in climb! All the way up to 2000m, it was such a luxury.
