An Introduction to Soaring Flight
10:00 AM - 11:15 AM
Location: Forum Stage 3
Presenter: Scott Manley
This presentation begins with a short history of motor-less flight, but quickly transitions to the modern sport of Soaring. Topics include launch methods (how we get up there), options for sustained flight (how we stay up there), and landing (what happens when we can’t stay up there). The presentation covers aspects of the sport including recreation, achievement, and competition. It concludes with some interesting facts and figures followed by a question/answer session.
