Flying is Back( at least ON LINE)

After a successful test flight last night BWND is back in business!
( at least with Condor2 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚)

We clocked up our first 360 (virtual) Kms between us with varied results, two successful land outs, very close to home and an enjoyable evening was had by all.

I would like to invite anyone to join us again on Monday evening at 19.00 for another short task.

hopefully it wonโ€™t be long before REAL flying commences

stay safe

  1. Great group Condor flight last night ๐Ÿ™‚.

    Many thanks George for setting it up ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.

    There was one part in particular of last nights online foray my fellow club members, that you might find amusing ๐Ÿ˜‰. We are of course all just finding our feet at the moment with online group flying, which meant as I logged on at the prescribed time of 19:30 last night, I found myself very unexpectedly seated in a futuristic looking Lak Genesis 2, which I hadnโ€™t flown before! The task start times on Condor are time limited, and not wanting to miss the task start led to me mid-way through my online aero tow, checking online on my phone to see if the Lak had flaps or not! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

    It was all good fun ๐Ÿ™‚ and George has promised me that on the next task, I can fly the lovely little ASW19B (with the very fetching Alps paint livery ๐Ÿ˜‰) that Iโ€™ve been practicing in for the past few evenings ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.

    Terrific experience, flying with fellow club members online, with some good banter on the Condor chat facility ๐Ÿ™‚. I managed to fly a virtual 98.4k, before landing gently out in a field, just north east of Longleat approx 7k short of the Park.

    Really good fun, definitely recommended to all, looking forward to Georgeโ€™s next task on Monday evening ๐Ÿ™‚.

    Welcome to Cyberspace Gliding dear aviators ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜‰.

    Thanks.

    Kind regards.

    1. Sadly I can’t join in on the fun as I own a MacBook Pro computer & according to the Condor team I need “to run on a Mac you need either bootcamp, or parallels. Probably best to talk to a Mac expert for that.” (they’re quote).

      That said, the good news is that Julie has set up a virtual bacon butty site so that your not flying on an empty stomach, please email your orders half an hour in advance of your take off time ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Evening All

    Ok,RASP predicts another good day, winds are from the South West, cloud base will be around 4000ft with variable thermal strengths.
    Mondayโ€™s task will be the Club 100k.
    TIS-BRU-MEL.
    Hopefully launching will start at 19.00 and there will be a better choice of glider to play in๐Ÿ‘
    Donโ€™t forget to order you butties in good time๐Ÿ˜‹ and please keep the alcohol intake to a minimum or at least in till we get in the bar๐Ÿ˜‚
    See you there
    George
