Landing on the sloping side of a hill can be a very useful skill to have, to allow you to land when thermals pause, and relaunch when they return. Or perhaps there’s no safe landing in the valley, and you need to put it in on the slope? With this simple, straightforward approach you can achieve a gentle touchdown.
In this episode: choosing a safe approach, judging groundspeed, flare timing, controlling the wing on a slope, relaunching, swoop landings, working around obstacles … and more!
