Ridge Flight near the mountains' walls needs some elementary cautions!
No Speed = No Maneuverability.
No noise in your cockpit, you are flying to slow. Push forward your stick.
In lee side of the ridge, push forward your stick, never be afraid of your speed till 140 km/h or more.
In lift side of the ridge, slow your speed, but keep some margin of a minimum of 10 km/h over the minimum speed of your glider.
Find the best distance between your glider and the mountains' walls to reach maximum lift. The best lift in ridge flight is not near by the mountains' walls and it is somewhere dangerous.
Experiment these elementary advices in Condor. But always follow the precise advices of your instructor in real flying.
The following tasks are made for ASK13 with the same fair weather than older tasks, published in 2008, with nearly the same way, but actualized with WildAlps1.
Start and Turn Points are automatic, no need to take a picture. You can start any time you want until you reach the max start altitude. Clouds are always easily avoidable.
You will find for each tasks a map for Ridge tasks (ie: with northward sun, southward shadows to get visually a better relief's preception and blue tinted snow).
Print the map or display the map on your second monitor
