Gliding photographs/3700ft.jpg


In this picture you can see that we are flying just below the cloud level (3700ft) The instrament of the left is the ASI or Air Speed Indicator) The middle dial is the height of the aircraft and right hand dial is the vario that measurs how fast the glider is going up or down. At the moment it is falling at 1knt per minuet (100ft) this is normal. If we were to enter a thermal it would indicate up. A weak thermal may be 1 or 2kns where as a strong thermal would be above 4kns.
