Safe Ridge Soaring

With lots of minds turning to winter ridge flying, the Southdown gliding club has highlighted two of their previously recorded safe ridge flying webinars.

The first video is aimed at the challenges faced whilst soaring the local ridge and is helpful for those who have done very little ridge soaring at Parham. Click here to watch this video

The second video is aimed at pilots who plan to leave the local ridge and venture across the gaps to the West and East of Parham and includes examples of what has gone wrong. Click here to watch this video

There is detailed generic safety information on hill, ridge and mountain soaring here.

All pilots are reminded about the BGA Soaring Protocol.
