SECRETS TO GLIDER MATH: Simple Glide Calculations to Keep You Safer!


Do NOT miss this phenomenal webinar presented by CINDY BRICKNER and 3 of her friends.

Soaring at home or cross-country doesn't require any multi-hundreds-of-dollars instrumentation, nor does it need a mega-thousand-dollar
sailplane, nor a crew, nor an inordinate amount of risk. And, it doesn't have to be scary! These techniques require a sectional chart for your flight route -- max price of $15.

Learn how to do SIMPLE calculations, in your head, or on your left-hand fingers (while your right hand flies) to keep you above glide slope to safe landing alternatives. These techniques convert glider performance math into tried and true, bite-sized chunks to keep your mind free to focus on thermal centering, lift-line analysis, and speeds-to-fly rather than button pushing and navigational distress. You can do this in your club's single-seater, a borrowed JS-3, or a tired but trusty 2-33. This even works if the Cezzna runs out of gas on the way to a $100 hamburger!

After attending this webinar, you will know how to:

- QUICKLY and EASILY calculate if you are above glide
- Determine If you have enough altitude to safely move on to another landing field
- Adjust for headwinds and tailwinds

THIS AND ALL OF OUR WEBINARS ARE NOW ELIGIBLE FOR THE FAA WINGS PROGRAM! The FAA, along with the aviation industry, has realized recurrent training reduces the accident rate dramatically.

The Wings program includes both learning activities and flight tasks to be accomplished for credit towards obtaining one of the levels in the Wings program. After completing a level of the Wings program you may substitute this completion for your flight review.

It is easy to sign up for the program and is FREE! Go to www.faasafety.gov for information.

This practical "how to" webinar series takes place every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month and covers practical beginner-level to advanced material. Please share this information with all your club members.
