What you should know?

This training will push you and your efficiency forward more and anything else.

Goals of XC training:

All training days are devoted to cross country flying and their subsequent analysis. In the morning, we analyse the weather conditions and prepare the best flying route, we indicate tricky parts and possible ways how to handle them. In the beginning of the days, we take off and start the flight together. With the walkie-talkie we are able to assist you during the flight. We will tell you where you can find a good thermal, which place you should avoid and how to fly through a tricky part most effectively. If any of us will not make it, our driver will take him on the track.

The goal of our cross country trips is to teach you how to make your own flyable route according to the actual conditions and how to choose the best way to execute it. The vital part is to teach you patience and inner-peace during the most important parts of the flight.
