Weekends have been great, doing two intro courses at our traing slope and other students flying as well doing different manouver for their licenses, with light conditions straight up the from making take offs easy if you run all the way off and the flying day almost until sunset.

A day to remember for these guys, on such a crisp and beautifull flying day, getting above the top peaks and getting a panaramic view of the whole area.

Hearts pumping as they climbed slowly with light thermals against the rock faces taking they higher and higher. The air was crisp, clean but very cold on their bare hands, but they refused to come down, enjoying every moment of this new world, away from plannet earth.
