LOW LEVEL FINAL GLIDE - Scary but possible - How to return to Unterwössen safely

category: general
Duration: 00:05:39
A final glide after a long xc-flight is always a critical point and highlight of the whole flight. Follow me in this video through a highspeed low level final glide from a seemingly hopeless position. I take you on this training flight flying a parcours through tight valleys from a low position and without having the airfield in sight.

Please note that I am a learning glider pilot, sharing with you my experiences and the magic of soaring, including my mistakes and goodtakes, aiming to make this sport better and safer together.
