Today we will first head to the Czech Republic and talk with our good friend Barbora Moravcova, She is a member of the Czeck Repubulic Women’s gliding team and has just finished competing in the 15 meter class of the FCC Flight Challenge competition in Slovokia, flying her LS8. Unfortunately the first day of that competition was a rough one to say the least. Barbora chose to share this with us in hopes that we all can learn from it and be better and safer pilots. She will also share with us how she worked through it, since she recived the news while still in the air and had to get her glider safely back on the ground. She will talk about her plans for the rest of her soaring season and take a look at the Women’s Worlds she will be competing in later this summer in the United Kingdom.
Later on this episode we join Jack Jenner Hall in Great Britain, a 15 year old glider pilot who just won his first aerobatic competition and currently working on being a flight instructor. Jack has been flying gliders since he was 11 and aviation is his passion like many of us.
