Nice flight today, 500k+ despite an early morning would-be-out landing. The thermals were pretty ok but the cloud base was only average, wind was quite strong and at the end I had to start the engine because I had to get home on time.
After today’s experience I would estimate 700 km are possible in Germany on a good, long day. More might be possible in the mountains or downwind.
After more than 90 hrs since September I have to say the CARAT is a great aeroplane and glider, I just love it! See the flight at onlinecontest.org
These are the Carat pilots comments soar with Carat. Carat simple just fits in to the OLC Online Contest philosophy.
Check some Carat OLC competition results, world wide from April 2008.
Congratulations to Carsten !
