Paragliding Lessons: Breeze bottom take off in strong conditions.

Hello everyone! Today, talk about the bottom take-off in Golubitskaya, so – let’s go! Let’s analyze the features of the bottom take-off The take off area is highlighted in green. Accordingly located here It is necessary to make a way from the bottom up to come to the take off area What other features are there?! Zone dynamics highlighted in yellow Hazardous areas highlighted in red Please pay attention to the small red zone This is pipe. Many wings have already been hung on this pipe and about the same number of them have been torn. Important to understand that when entering the dynamic zone The wing ceases to be stable begins to swing in pitch Back and forth either roll, from right to left or from left to right When we arrived at the take off zone, the starting path will be something like this. Let’s analyze the take off from a slightly different angle. From this perspective, the take off location is here. The dynamics zone is highlighted in yellow areas. At this point, our wing is not as stable as possible. Because behind us the dynamic zone is in front, too. Respectively, the wing will swing in pitch. Back and forth It will be necessary to compensate for this buildup. Danger zones are highlighted in red. Again, please pay attention to the pipe. On the slope we climb in this direction. To the take off We approach the center of the wing. We run up in this direction and take off. Consider the take off example. Slowly, we begin to rise sideways along the path and constantly control the wing, necessary to compensate for the buildup. If the wing starts to swing very much then we slow down a bit and wait until it stabilizes. Then we continue to slowly climb to the take off zone. When entering the take off zone need to stabilize the wing check it, that it has stabilized and are preparing for take-off Next, we run up and take off. It should be noted that this starting method is suitable for wind at the bottom of approximately 6 meters per second at the top of 10 meters per second. Consider starting in a stronger wind. In the bottom the wind is about 8 m/s, in the top more than 10 m/s. When starting in such a wind, there are already problems even bottom. However you can take off in such conditions. Features of this launch, no need to climb up you must carefully approach the slope and pump the wing. Approaching the slope, we begin to pump the wing. We are waiting for the lifting force to appear. As soon as we take off, it is necessary to tighten the brakes a little bit, then release them. Consider the following example. All the same, we are in the dynamic zone. Pushed forward, little bit pump the wing and took off. Now we see that the wing is slightly tilted. Accordingly, it must be aligned in order to be able to start in the opposite direction. If start in the forward direction there is a large zone of turbulence due to bushes, a crusher here is a large dynamic zone. Accordingly, the wing will swing much more intensively in pitch. Let’s look at this example. From this example, it is clear that wing control is extremely important during bottom take-off. You need to practice very well before this. A good place to train, a little to the left of the take off. Now i’ll show you a small tutorial video. Where the dynamic zone. It ceases to be stable and begins to swing in pitch. It must be braked using brakes. Look, it’s not exactly above a head. If you leave the dynamic zone, the wing will cease to swing. Here is the same. Here again the dynamic zone. If you approach a big dynamic zon, the wing will swing more. If you want to take off, you need to go left. In conclusion, we can say that the bottom take-off is demanding on the pilot. This requires a good control of the paraglider. knowledge of equipment and individual skills. and the most important skill the Skill to refuse to fly in these conditions. The wind is strong, there’s nothing good or heroic about it, everyone should understand why he flies in strong winds, since this is very dangerous. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial video, see you soon.
