Welcome to Episode #9 of The Thermal…the antipodean edition. I’m your host Herrie ten Cate.
In this Episode of The Thermal, we go to Australia and hear about the impact of the devastating bush fires from the head of the Gliding Federation of Australia.
And we also find out what it’s like to fly in the Women’s World Gliding Championships in extreme heat and smoke. That contest was recently held in Lake Keepit, Australia. We hear all about it from 18-meter pilot Katrine Senne.
And from New Zealand gliding guru and author G Dale tells us about The Thermal Engine - his critically acclaimed set of gliding instruction manuals.
Finally on Gliding Club confidential, we go back to Australia for a look at the Adelaide Soaring Club. That’s all on this antipodean edition of The Thermal Podcast.
