The Thermal Podcast

Dec 27, 2021

In this Episode of The Thermal a 1600 KM wave flight over the Canadian Rockies at a blistering average speed of 140 knots. We talk to Arcus pilot Chester Fitchett.

We also hear from the Air Traffic Controller and glider pilot who helped facilitate this flight through controlled airspace.

And the story behind a lovingly restored Robin glider from the 1930s. We talk to glider pilot and restorer Doug Fronius.

And last but not least…a moving poem about the big inevitable Final Glide… that all of us glider pilots will all eventually face.

That and a whole lot more on this episode of The Thermal.
