Thermaling Masterclass for Paraglider Pilots (PART 1)

Thermaling Masterclass for Paraglider Pilots (PART 1)

Posted on 03/15/2019

Join Flybubble Paragliding for a thermaling masterclass. In this series, Carlo Borsattino provides in-flight commentary as he tries to climb out on his paraglider. Learn from an expert thermaler how to look out for lift, identify the best part of the thermal, work with other pilots, and much more.

We hope you find this free instructional video useful and enjoyable to watch, despite the unintentional too-loud vario sounds on it. This was caused by Carlo mistakenly first leaving the audio on both varios he was testing switched on and then second putting the mic right next to them. Doh! In retrospect he should've muted one of the varios, and probably lowered the volume of the other. He has now learned from these silly mistakes and will try to do better in future. Sorry! 😊
