Oliver Dyer-Bennet AMS/USA, September the 2nd, 2008

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

These are the Carat pilots comments soar with Carat. Carat simple just fits in to the OLC Online Contest philosophy.
