Ground handling

Post by gary stenhouse » Mon Jun 05, 2017 8:14 pm

Listening to cloud base mayhem podcast about groundhandling and they say you should do 10 to 1 ground handling so for me 10 hours a year. Should find more time as back at the start of my flying I was a lot better than I am now

It's a fun thing to do. Great exercise and somewhere to share opinions and encourage each other. It also surprised me ground handling other wings how difficult they can be to launch due to their aspect ratio.
we should meet more often. I was practising a new strong wind launch with my tandem the last two weekends in a row.

Seems my wing just loves to be in big ears unless its flying????? Oh,, and just stop before it reaches the top of the window??
Certainly the strangest wing I've ever had on the ground, fortunately it's quite happy when flying. :)
See you out there!!!!!
