First flight near Frenciugi village

Our paraglider pilots were in desperate need of a new hill for NW wind. Several places have been checked on maps and after preliminary selection on Google Earth we went on the field for a real test. A 550 m long ridge facing NW and situated East of Frenciugi village and NNE of Cazanesti lake was our priority target last Saturday. The 100 m high hill is composed of a smooth slope at base counting for 70 m in height and a steep ridge at top. Let's see how good it is for paragliding this hill near Frenciugi. 

If it's good or not for flying...well, I guess this video explains everything :).
