The Thermal Podcast

Dec 4, 2019

Welcome to Episode #7 of The Thermal. I’m your host Herrie ten Cate.

In this Episode of The Thermal, we take a look at weather forecasting and how to figure out that perfect 500 km day. The good news is that it no longer requires a crystal ball.

First up – Matthew Scutter, the man behind SkySight, the fantastic weather app for glider pilots. He’ll tell us the story behind this app, that has become indispensable for many pilots.

We also speak with Andrew Blum – the author of The Weather Machine – A Journey Inside the Weather Forecast. We talk about the art of weather forecasting and where we are today.

And on Gliding Club Confidential, we go to the Netherlands and the Deelen Gliding Club. Simon van den Eijkel or Flying Simon as he’s known to some will tell us all about his club.

We will also speak to a pilot about a mystery glider that was hiding in plane sight (pun intended) at his local gliding club. What is it and where did it come from? That and a whole lot more on episode #7 of The Thermal Podcast.
