Less inverted today with greater potential than the last few days. However, we may start seeing large cloud build up later in the afternoon with some risk of Congestus development along the convergence which seems likely to set up along the Sierra de Avila. Once again probably an out and return day due to light […]
A light wind day with good thermal quality but with climbs not much above 2400m in general. Most stayed within the valley, but Steve crossed the Pass to Avila and made some way back for an excellent flight with such low conditions.
Not a disimilar day to yesterday, but with lighter wind and perhaps higher climbs. More scope for an interesting O& R such as Pass, Barco and back. Once again no rush to take off, but when conditions finally start it will be strong at take off again. Briefing around 11am
Yesterday the forecast was pretty spot on, the inversion maintaining and a N flow. Most flew within the Corneja valley with climbs little over 2400m
In general a NE flow, but in our valley NW lower down. Rather inverted early on and most climbs between 2200 and 2600m until late afternoon with perhaps some climbs to near 3000m on the mountain. Mainly blue , though we may see some Cu in the Avila valley and near the east side of […]
A good looking day whilst I was at the airport. Nice Cu to around 3000m+ etc and light winds. Our evening flight turned out to be one of the biggest restitution flights of the year with heaps of lift.
Wind is likely to come onto PN , but perhaps crossed. Wind is near limit of comfort for PG, but today we should certainly concentrate on getting in the air. Less chance of large Cu build ups, though some likely along parts of convergence (the typical SW pattern to day). Briefing around 10.45 with a […]
With a trough sitting over us we have some unstable conditions and variable winds, though mainly to the SW and on the strong side at times. Certainly not the best forecast due to potential vertical development of the Cu and some rain showers perhaps. Wind at take off early this morning now at 32km/hr….not normal […]
The wind came onto PN consistently for only a short time yesterday and we had some large Cu build ups to the NE of the valley. Of those who flew, Richard did very well with a great circuit flight to the NW as far as Armenteros and then back.
Wind patterns and convergence lines not dissimilar to previous days, though perhaps greater possibility of build up of large clouds and maybe more chance of wind on at PN. More detail at briefing.
