flying

September 2018

With the last sunny days of the Summer came and the annual "Finnish Invasion" of Sopot.

Our frinds from Helsinki were again arround and about managing to make some nice flights in the valley and beyond making the best of the good autumn conditions.

Due to the persistent NE winds some interesting routes were possible to the SW of Sopot in the rarely flown southern slopes of Sredna Gora.

July 2018

July came with warm weather and some more thunderstorms.

However we managed to complete 2 XC Training and 2 XC Guiding weeks and to help our friends reach new horizons while feeling more comfortable with thermals.

The XC training consisted of thermal by thermal guidance by our instructors plus briefing and debriefing via tracklog analysys of everyone participating - one of the best ways of learning is trough your own mistakes.

March 2018

Altough the weather is warming up winter is still not gone and likes to remind us of that.

The first batch of beginners had a fairly wet week o training but all managed to finish their beginners course happy.

In the mean time Ivo is enjoying the beautiful and rather hot summer in Australia

September 2017

The first weeks of September we had a few events in Sopot - with the Bulgarian National Championships taking place in the first week and the "Airheads" festival in the second.

Ivelin Kalushkov managed to score 4-th place in the national rankings and 7-th place overall.

With the hardcore weather left in August we resumed training courses in September, and we were no short of enthusiasts wanting to take to the skies.

August 2017

August came with the weather everyone was waiting for - record braking conditions and lots of flying.

Surely enough Yasen Savov proved that the conditions are record -breaking and smashed 2 of the Bulgarian neational records - for free distance doing 360 km from Nevsha to Kavala (Greece), and for FAI triangle - doing 225 km.
