Flyable Saturday?

Regional weather map shows area on boarder between clouds and sun.   Local forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies and light west winds all day.  Winds aloft are moderate.

NBR is showing light and variable winds. Soaring forecast is poor.

Got all sizes of the Ozone Ozium harnesses in stock so come and hang in one.

Headed for Tapalpa, Mexico soon for some warm weather soaring.  Still a few spots open so let know if you want get out of the cold and tired of short flights.

 

 

Saturday is light and variable?

Regional weather map shows much clouds over area.  Despite local forecast calling for light west winds, NBR has been showing some easterly flow.

Winds aloft are a bit high but Sugar Loaf is showing easterly winds.

A few spots are still available for our Tapalpa, Mexico trip next month February 4—11th. This looks to be much better flying.

 

Saturday looks like west winds!

NOAA weather radio calling for strong westerly winds this PM and local forecast shows the same.  Pressure gradient is big at negative -.27″!  Winds aloft are very high! NBR  still showing light and variable  winds but Sugar Loaf already showing strong westerly winds.

Good day to finish your Christmas shopping:  I just received a new order of Ozone Ozium pod harnesses and have Ozone flight suits to keep you warm for during this winters flying. Have Ascent H2 GPS varios  in a variety of colors for just $349!

Still some spots left if you really want to stay warm in Tapalpa, Mexico February 4—-11th.

The solstice is past so more sun is coming!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Saturday December flying possible?

Regional  weather map shows clear skies over CO.   Local forecast shows light winds over area turning easterly this PM.  Winds aloft are a bit high but  Sugar Loaf is showing light and variable winds. Thermal soaring forecast is good—500’/min—starting at 11:45AM with no over development. Pressure difference -.25″! NBR is showing light and variable early.

Still have a few spots open for Tapalpa, Mexico February 4—11th.

Alphina 3 was released this week and already have 2 orders arriving end of  January 2018.

Saturday’s west winds but Sunday’s up slope?

The jet stream and strong winds aloft are over area.  Local forecast calls for strong westerly winds on Saturday but turning northerly on Sunday.  This would give a NE flow at NBR on Sunday if sunny,

The jet stream and strong westerly winds are a part of winter here so consider our trips to Tapalpa, Mexico in January & February. There are still a few spots left.

Saturday

Monday’s cold front made for some exciting flying as I was blown southward to North Boulder Park.

Saturday looks partly cloudy.  Local weather forecast shows easterly winds most of the day. Thermal soaring forecast is excellent—1,200’/min—starting at 11:30AM  and over development by 3PM!  NBR is not operating.

Any pilots with large Buzz Z that wants to upgrade to a new wing, please let me know as I need one.

Monsoon season is here!

The monsoon season is upon us with short soaring periods before thunderstorms. My best reference for this is the thermal soaring forecast.  It calls for thermal to start at 10:30AM and to be over developed—rain & gusty winds at  3PM! Thermals will strengthen up to 1,100’/ minute near time of over development so come early for smoother air!

Winds aloft are light and little pressure difference.  Today I hope to finally fly my new Delta 3!

I have posted another of my Rat Race Videos that shows the rules—this was a left turn day—and challenges of flying with 230 other pilots.

Back in Boulder for the 4th with Delta 3!

Returned last night from 3 week road trip to The Rat Race, Coastal Soaring in San Francisco, Glass Off Flight in Richfield, Utah, and Flight in Aspen. I have already posted some of these flights and others later but today I will start ground handling & flying my new Delta 3.

Looks like high pressure on the 4thwith local forecast calling for easterly winds all day.

10% chance of thunderstorms this PM. Thermal soaring forecast is excellent—1,500’/min—starting at 10AM with over development by 3PM! I will start ground handling my Delta 3 at 10AM.

P.S.  If anyone has Ozone Ozium pod harness, I now have the complementary replacement handle.
