Eastern Alps WAVE-thread

Postby mosquito » Fri Mar 10, 2006 8:36 pm

Hi!

i just finished a nice free distance flight in Wave from Zell am See of 500km (OLC).

i found some interesting waves, (wind from the north) and i would like to ask if anybody has made some nice wave flights in the new scenery, too until now?

Maybe we could share them here....i'm sure there are some interesting weird places where you can find waves in the scenery :D

Wave-y gravy all over the place...

Just for fun I set the wx with weak thermals and wind at 20 kts out of the NW and then went to town playing all over the place. Attached are some fun shots. It was great to see 11K feet on the altimeter with mountains still rising above. It was even more fun to see +12 at 11K feet in the wave.

There will be a lot more adventure in the Alps with this kit. The phrase "get high and stay high" just doesnt cut it on this scenery. Need to get high and hope you can get higher because you simply cant go around this granite overcast.

cheers,

Bill

I've never really caught a good wave before in Condor, but just two nights ago i managed to catch one only a few km's away from the airport on the alps scenery, and got up to 8000m and could of gone higher if i had the time. I never knew how to get into a wave intill now.

Hi Folks,

I flew a 1000km task within the new Alps scenery the other day. It was mostly done in waves with occasional use of thermals and ridges. exhausting fun...

Cheers, W.
