Winter Flying

Oh baby it’s cold outside… So why?

The clear air, spectacular  scenery, a distinctly different type of airmass to experience. The highest altitudes at PGC are typically achieved in the winter months. And then there is the wave, whith a great explanation given in this just released video by “Chess in the Air”:

We’ll keep on flying. So get electric socks and bring at least one more layer than you think you need.

  1. Great explanation of wave flight in general and what we sometimes experience at PGC when the winds are strong and from ~300deg (like today, 27Nov). Shame we had an overcast until mid-day which precluded climbing to the necessary altitude (generally above 3,000agl) to pick up the ~tertiary wave from the ridge to our north. Note oxygen and transponder in use in the video flight – good to keep in mind when the same would be required in our area. Electric socks would also be wise đŸ˜‰
