Description

Level 2 - Flight in Thermal

Typology
Fly in thermal accompanied by an instructor. At least 5 hours of thermal flying Accumulation.

Objectives
Acquire skills for thermal flight. Improvement of theoretical subjects related to meteorology and aerodynamics required for thermal flight.

Practical program Step 4 (summary)

Step 3 Maneuvers dominated and revised if necessary
Planning: flight process, flight plan design
360º, turn in flight
Thermal flight
Weak descent: take-off and permanence
 Step 4 theoretical program (summary)

Aerodynamics ( 3 hours )
Weather ( 6 hours )
Equipment ( 2 hours )

GENERAL COURSE PROGRAM
The practical and theoretical Program of the course is fully contained in the Portuguese Federation of Free Flight Regulation of Instruction and Qualification.

 

Level 2 - High Performance

Typology
XC Flight (High Performance).
The pilot uses thermal air currents to travel to a point far from takeoff (sometimes returning).

Objective
Collection of meteorological information and analysis, study and analysis of flight planning. Use of maps (navigation on hostile terrain). Study and in-depth general knowledge of air law (navigation charts). Training and handling of specific technical equipment. Safety and Competition.

Practical program Step 5 (summary)

Revision: dominated maneuvers in the previous step (4)
Flight planning and decision
Permanence in various types of ascendance
Take-offs in various situations (average difficulty)
Landings in various situations (medium difficulty)
Theoretical program Stage 5 (summary)

Navigation
Using maps
