Winch towing tests Iasi 2010

The summary of the busiest tests day for our winch wchich made around 20 launches. It was a torrid summer day: 40 Celsius degrees, wind variable from N, E and SE almost zero as intensity. Thermals made operation very frustrating changing wind direction during towing :). We had also sereval incidents: towing bridle has blocked and towing line has broke several times. The entire length of towing line was used, around 900-1000m and pilots reached between 250-350 m altitude.
