Alptitude!

High Hopes in the French Alps

From Alpha to Omega

Interesting day today. We had a day off from clients and I was fortunate enough to have a fly on the Small Omega 8. From flying the Advance Alpha on the recent occassions it was nice to have a go on the new Advance Omega 8, completely different gliders but same manufacturer, strangely similar characteristics although worlds apart! I had a couple of really nice flights although will reserve my opinion until I’ve tried it with a bit more ballast. First flight was late morning and in gentle light conditions, second flight a bit more thermic with a tempered inversion. Nice glide though… Dennis had a fly on it but was quite heavy although he did manage to climb out very well considering the glider weight ratio. More fun tomorrow weather willing.
