    Flying High

    June 22, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    What a magnificent day to glide and fly. It is quite snug in the cockpit once strapped in however foot pedals are adjustable which was a big relief.
    Going into the 360degree loop was fun and a couple of things I distinctly remember...it begins by pushing the nose down so that the glider gains speed which is a buzz in itself :)
    Then the pilot pulls back on the joystick and up, up and over you go, you lose your tummy a little which I expected.
    Overall the flight is very exhilarating as well as being relaxing which is an interesting combination of emotions.
    Oh yeah...the pilot was a guy called Kirk, so Captain Kirk seemed appropriate.
    Benalla is a great place to glide because it is very flat and gets hot in summer which creates lots of thermals.
