THERMALING

Often the most critical part of any pilot training is immediately after qualification, when you have to fly outside of the school environment. This can seem daunting especially as you have to deal with unfamiliar terrain and different flying conditions. A lot of pilots are not trained in school to fly in thermic conditions and would be glad for some extra instruction.

Over a 3 day course, we will work on your knowledge and technique - guiding you on how to find thermals, how to respond to them, and how to harness their full potential. The course is designed for pilots that have recently qualified, or are low airtime, and are looking to develop their mountain flying skills in co-ordinated and structured way. If you are looking to improve your skills & decisions to give you the best chance of climbing away from hill to the freedom of the open skies, then sign up for our thermalling course - and see just how fast you can progress. 

The mild and super-consistent weather of the Pokhara valley provide excellent flying conditions for pilots throughout the year, but the conditions for developing thermalling skills are at their best in the November- January period. For novice pilots through to XC hounds, there is some very special flying to be had in Nepal, with different times of year geared towards differing piloting levels. 

The thermalling course is an introduction to thermal flying with the objective of improving the pilot’s knowledge and skills needed to make the most of the lift on any given day.

Day 1

  • Meet in the office for equipment and radio check.
  • After assessing the conditions we head out to the days flying site.
  • Theory lesson on the hill in understanding thermal sources, triggers and dynamics. This involves watching lots of birds of prey!
  • Briefing for the days flying.
  • The instructor will guide you with 2-way radio from the hill in finding, catching and staying in thermals.
  • Depending on how long your flight is we try for 2 flights a day.

Day 2

  • Meet in the office for equipment and radio check.
  • After assessing the conditions we head out to the days flying site.
  • Following on from the previous day we try and keep you in the air as long as possible. The longer you are up the more you are learning.

Day 3

  • We try and take you to a different site each day to improve your knowledge and assessment of varying conditions.
  • The last day of the course we try and get you to follow the instructor around the sky. We have found that it is a lot easier to get to cloud base with someone else in the thermal with you, talking you through the process.
  • At the end of each day is a debriefing session, where everyone can sit down and talk about the days flying.
