In this Episode of The Thermal, we hear from the two pilots who just set a new US multi-seat record by flying from Minnesota to Tennessee in an Arcus M. This flight wasn’t a spur of the moment decision. It was literally years in the making.
In the UK, the British Gliding Association has noticed a disturbing trend in towplane upsets. We talk to the Chair of the British Gliding Association’s Safety Committee to find out why and what’s being done to stop it from happening.
Parachutes…believe it or not…sometimes glider pilots actually have to use them. We talk to long time competition pilot Dave Nadler about leaving an out of control glider and living to talk about it. Pay attention to this interview…it could save our life.
And on Gliding Club Confidential, we go to Lithuania. A small country on the Baltic with a group of passionate glider pilots.
That and a whole lot more on this edition of The Thermal Podcast…
