Public Chat / Flying with DSC pilots.
« Last post by Hudson on Wednesday 11 April 2018: 15:03 »
Can we start a discussion on how to fly with each other?
How to be a better pilot is not always about aggressively working lift F--- the rest. Sometimes it works best, to cooperate?

Flying straight at the centre of a thermal? https://youtu.be/upEmDwpcvgU

I remember one of your videos, look before you turn before you die. My head is on a swivel in busy thermals, a lot of the time I look for the exit rather than the climb especially when the flying of others gets a bit too random. Unfortunately even this early in the season I have witnessed and had pilots fly straight at me or other pilots established in a thermal.

Dear Club coaches.
What about a Club coaching evening, where the coaches just have an informal chat about flying situations.

A sort of all singing from the same page plan?

I'm in the Peaks for a week, so I've joined as a temporary member.  Is there a telegram group or similar which I could join so as to know what's likely to be happening where?

Introductions / Re: New Beginner + ground handling?
« Last post by Moses on Tuesday 20 March 2018: 20:08 »
Hi Michael and welcome, Ash is the man to give you the best advice, initially on your lessons you will be concentrating on ground handling and even once you have qualified , practice, practice , practice ground handling, as Ash said why not start lessons sooner and gain the knowledge for ground handling from an instructor, this would build your confidence and enable you to practice using the instruction given. B.H.P.A will give you lists of local schools , looking forward to meeting up on the hill
