Yellow fields

It is a wonderful feeling to fly with a glider! I once had the chance to try it out…


A “glider” is an unpowered aircraft. The design enables them to climb using rising air and then to glide for long distances before finding the next source of lift. The term “sailplane” is sometimes used , implying a glider with a high soaring performance. (WIKI)

The two most common methods of launching gliders are by aerotow and by winch. When aerotowed, the glider is towed behind a powered aircraft using a rope about 60 meters long. The glider's pilot releases the rope after reaching the desired altitude, but the rope can also be released by the towplane in an emergency. (WIKI)
