Ridge and Wave Camp "Żar 2012"

In October and November we have organized, together with the Mountain Gling School Żar, two Ridge and Wave Soaring Camps at Żar EPZR airfield, aimed at schooling and training of novice pilots. With over 50 attendees we flew 462 sorties, 566 hours, having up to 35 gliders in the air.  Just 14 instructors and 11 lecturers devoted their time to teach other pilots how to cope with a very turbulent air in Beskidy Mountains. It was amazing, how many pilots from whole the Poland had arrived just to learn a very demanding mountain soaring in the Fall.
