Heat low continues with the main problems of instability much further from our flying zone. Also winds lighter with good thermal quality giving us the prospect of a good XC day. An inversion around 2600m but we should be getting climbs by mid afternoon to around 3000m+ The wind is more to the NW today […]
Yesterdays conditions were going to always be rough and problematic so, having seen the big build ups and rain in the Avila valley we mostly flew in the Piedrahita valley locally. The competition however had a successful. day keeping well north to avoid conditions in Ambles , which in fact turned good by 3pm. 4 […]
We continue with the heat low and have a trough to our south with most of the Cb action there and to our East. Our area has a reduced Cb problem and we should be ok today. However, the winds are stronger which will make flying XC beyond Avila very difficult to day. Any convergence […]
an excellent day with great conditions and an a number of excellent flights topped by Mike and Stu, both for their first time over 100km.
Relative low pressure with most of the upper level instability to our South and East. We should have a good soaring day with excellent XC potential however the build up of congestus and possible Cbs is greater than yesterday. The more westerly flow will provide us with the classic convergence in the Avila valley, most […]
A SE flow at PN which should come onto the hill by late morning. We expect convergence on the Plateau behind take off, and an easterly flow towards Barco. Not a brilliant day for open distance due to the swing of the winds further down towards Plasencia. Climbs to c3000m by mid afternoon, with […]
Very nice soaring conditions and the milk run flight to Barco. Base around 2700m when we landed. Looking good for the evening flight. All in , we flew every day this week, made 6 personal bests and a few 100km flights. Next week looking nice!
Today we have the conditions which made Piedrahita famous as a big XC venue. With the SW flow we have a convergence running across the Avila vally then out to the NE across the flatlands. An inversion around 2700m will slow things, but we should get climbs to 300om+ metres again. However, the big negative, […]
A similar day to yesterday for the conditions with the whole gang getting out of La lastra. Most made around 30 to 40 but after this distance the conditions really picked up with climbs to around 3600m and a convergence running N to beyond the horizon.
Not disimilar to yesterday in many respects. We may go to La Lastra, the other S site, which is a little easier to get away from. A similar convergence effect to the North is expected once again. So another long day!
