Carlo met the friendly Supair team and chatted with them about products in development.
On the stand was an early proto of this deluxe XC harness, also suitable for competition flying. It will be a similar weight to the Skypper, maybe slightly lighter, with a pronounced taper at the tip to improve aerodynamic flow.
I will never forget this flight. It will always be present in my mind, during every glide and under every cloud…
The cumulus looked similar to others of the day. So did its shadow and its size. I was climbing with a soft 3m/s under the centre of it, where I always found the best lift that day, if not at the windward side.
There are a few pilots who consider that because the rules of the air give them priority it is always other people who have the responsibility to get out of their way. But this is not true, either in flight, on approach, or in the landing area.
