New hill, not good for flying maybe good for something else...

Last days we went to Borotesti in search for a new flying hill for NW wind. We didn't find what we've searched for, hill is fragmented too much, however that place has surprised us with something else: fossils...

fossilized shells

Visiting Poienesti flying place in Vaslui county

Poienesti-Vaslui is a good flying place for NW wind. The hill is almost surrounded by forest which makes this spot a thermal trigger.

Testing a new hill at Scheia

I've found a new hill at Scheia for NW vind. This hill has around 170m from top to landing place and appears to have good potential for thermals.

France is here at Popricani

Last weeks we had an unexpected and welcomed visit from French flyers at Popricani: Bertrand Burlot and his wife.
Have a look at the cage used for steering the glider.
