The snow’s melting fast but the sun’s shining and the thermals are kicking in. Can only mean one thing … time to fly! The flying season has definitely begun in Bourg St Maurice. Everyone’s getting into the air out here – student flyers, old time pilots, the acro boys … it’s all happening.
Here’s Renato on a flight from Vallandry take-off earlier this week. Conditions were predictably spring-like – some 5m/s up thermals and generally lively enough to keep it honest – but nothing too hectic, in fact really enjoyable. Things will smooth out over the next couple of weeks as summer kicks in.
