Sunday Hangar Talk May 03

Post by Jim Fryett » Sat May 02, 2020 8:49 pm

Hi Everyone

Once again SOSA has invited us to join their Sunday Hangar Talk.

Hope to virtually see you Sunday afternoon.


Jim




Joerg Stieber:
For the Hangar Talk on Sunday, May 3rd at 1pm EDT (17:00Z), I will talk about Lookout Techniques and Collision Avoidance. I already touched on this topic during our last “real” Hangar Talk in Rockton by giving a quick summary. This time I want to go much deeper into the details and present some real-life scenarios with lessons learned. With questions and discussion, it will take one hour plus.

- Please do not make a recording of the meeting, either video or still screen captures and do not post any part of the meeting to the internet.

As with previous events, the meeting will be hosted using ZOOM. The link to join will be the same as for the last meeting:

Join URL: https://conestogac.zoom.us/j/439670538? ... t2YVZmdz09
To join the meeting, simply click on the link. If you have never before used Zoom, it will ask you to download and run an executable file.

The youtube video at the link below gives a brief explanation as to how to join.

For more details, you can search youtube with "how to join a zoom meeting" for other videos.

I didn't see too many people from York at the meeting today, so let me take a minute to let you know that Joerg Stieber's presentation was excellent. The real-life examples were very informative, and in a couple of cases similar to what I've experience while flying.

The section where he spoke about "thermalling etiquette" was particularly good because I just hate thermalling with others because of lack of confidence in knowing what's ok and what's not. I'll probably end up a bit more aggressive and will use the radio more to tell people off, or I'll just keep them more informed of my intentions, now that what I know so far, and what I've learned, was pretty much confirmed. LOL!!

Practical stuff.

too find the material well prepared (with the exception of the Land Out presentation) and presented.

In case you have not read the attached article on Lookouts, published in the BGA Sailplane and Gliding, they have some additional food for thought.
