Hang Gliding Australia -- That's Freedom

 Το παρακάτω εξαιρετικό βιντεάκι μας το έστειλε ο φίλος μας ο Fred T. L. Wilson που ζει στο Βέρμοντ του Καναδά και αφορά τον βιντεοσκοπημένο οδηγό περιοχών της Νέας Νότιας Ουαλίας στην Αυστραλία - New South Wales Australia Video Sites Guide Tour

 Mερικές πληροφορίες για το βίντεο:
A compilation of some memorable flights -- including some great landings.... and the not so perfect too! The previously deleted scenes :-)

The video of the aerotowing and ground towing are from courses, run by Warren Windsports, a fantastic experience and highly recommended. The payout Cloudstreet Winch is incredibly smooth for launching, Even with Steve's smooth flying through the turbulent air the aerotowing behing the Moyes Dragonfly can be a bit of a wild ride - a handful of fun and totally different to the smooth hydraulic payout winch.

The footage around Corryong was from the Corryong Cup 2011 competition, over 70 registered pilots and a handful of free flyers enjoying the best the local area has to offer. Mixing it with my floater wing amongst all of the high speed wings in the gaggle on my first flight on day 1 was an interesting experience and eye-opening introduction to competition!

Every flight is always different, it pays to never be complacent always ready for changes in conditions. The rock-and-roll landing at 7:15 was caused by a thermal launching on my approach, triggered by me flying into what was already a slight downhill paddock -- gives extra meaning to the term "tail wind landing"!

Flying can be a busy time in gaggles as you will see, and it can be solitary at times too. But at launch, in the landing paddock, and later in the pub or at camp it is always social and friendly -- hang gliding pilots are a special breed for sure.

I hope you enjoy watching this as much as I enjoyed the experience of all of these flights :-)
