After a lovely breakfast we begin the day with a briefing. We discuss the weather, flight planning, safety topics and organisational issues. Afterwards, participants and champions talk about what they learned in the previous day. Following is the theoretical part including a keynote lecture by one of our champions. This is where your questions can be asked and individual topics can be discussed.
The rest of the morning you prepare for your flight and together with your champion you set up an individual daily task. If there is still some time left, you can relax at the pool or enjoy an early lunch.
Teams usually begin their cross-country flights between 11am and 12.30pm. Before sunset you land back at Kiripotib. While enjoying the obligatory landing beer (or landing soda), the trainee and the trainer review the day and look forward to their 3-course dinner.
After three days of flying, we regroup you and you get another champion at your side – this way you can benefit from more experience and from shifting the focus on other aspects of your flying.
The last day is coming up with a special highlight: a common competition task just like in a Grand Prix is on the agenda. Crossing the starting point, you start a regatta with a countdown. This makes "flying the race" especially fun!
