Glider Pilots Team Up To Fly Across Colorado

One of Boulder’s most experienced glider pilots joins me for a team flight across multiple Colorado mountain ranges to soar above five Fourteener Peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Range with a video containing the full in-flight dialog as well as detailed commentary, graphics, illustrations, and explanations of critical decisions. My team partner, Bravo Charlie, was flying a Schleicher ASH 31Mi, and I was flying a Schempp-Hirth Ventus 2cxT, both of which are modern high-performance sailplanes with a wing-span of 18 meters. The flight was on Sep 14, 2020, originating and ending in Boulder, Colorado. A full trace of my flight can be found here. Quelle: ‘youtube‘.
