September 2020

September welcomed us with warm weather and still exceptional XC weather for the first 2 weeks.

Our frinds from the UK, Israel and Romania flew every day often stacking flights of over 100 km in consecutive days.

Amazing convergence lines and high cloudbase allowed us to fly to the W over the steep main ridge of Stara Planina to discover the Beauty of the Zlatitsa valley.

August came, and with it the best days of the season started.

Cloudbase rised up to over 3500 meters and our regular Finnish friends managed to enjoy some amazing flying days with XC flights well in exess of 100 km.

 

Sopot delivered good flying almost every day, and for the few days of NE winds Dobrostan welcomed us for some additional flying.

While the world is going crazy on covid the thermals in Bulgaria started going crazy as well allowing our XC students and guidied groups to make some amazing flights.

 

The month started with the last of the intermediate courses for the spring period. The students were familiarised with active piloting techniques and extreme situation management with collapse simulation and flying at critical angles of attack.

June has gone by an while the world is still going mad about the Covid19, our new  students got the super contaigious "flying virus".

The symptoms of the "Flying Virus" include:

 - Lack of fear from heights

 - Constant urge to look at forecasts

 - Uncontrolable desire to fly

 - Persistent desire for climbing hills and mountains and flying off them.

Despite the whole world being grounded and closed up in the Covid -19 panic - no virus can stop those who want to fly!

Our first students for the season took to the skies with our beginners paralgiding course.

Niki Yotov and some local pilots revived an old takeoff in Sredna Gora and made some amazing flights in Southern Bulgaria.

Hristo Petsanov made an impressive 140 km flight almost to the SE border of Bulgaria
