SDHGPA XC CLINIC 2014– PART 3 & 4
Presentation slides from the SDHGPA XC Clinic Discussions Part 3 & 4 as presented on 4-16-14
This Presentation is not a substitute for a proper site introduction, but rather one of many flight preparations to build upon and reinforce existing knowledge and skills required to fly Laguna or Elsinore. It is also meant as an overview to stimulate further interest and learning in these topics.
WARNING: The descriptions of typical flying conditions listed in this Clinic presentation reflect the experience of the authors of the guide. The conditions that you encounter at the site may differ, sometimes substantially, from those encountered by the authors. The descriptions of their experiences may not be relevant to the likely experience of any other pilot, particularly one who is relatively inexperienced or new to the site. A decision to launch is always that of the individual pilot. When deciding whether or not to fly, a pilot may wish to take into account the descriptions in this site guide but must also consider numerous other factors including the pilot's training and experience, familiarity with the site, equipment, physical and mental condition and the specific conditions in existence at the time of the decision. Pilots of relatively little experience or who are new to the site are urged to consult with other pilots at the site in order to obtain their assessment of the conditions.
