High Hopes in the French Alps


deceptively smooth looking

Weather’s been a bit up and down, what with it being rainy, and a bit stormy increasing winds, then some lovely sunshine although getting a bit stifling in the heat so a mixed bag of weather has been the norm recently.

lots of hangies about this weekend

We’ve been squeezing in a bit of flying around the valley but not much more than that as we are working with a relatively new cp pilot who is doing really well.

The Northerlies yesterday made for some interesting but not pleasant flying conditions, all very ropey with screaming highs, plummeting lows and wind washed thermals all very uncomfortable. More work tomorrow morning but the winds have calmed down now so the flying conditions are generally improving.
