Gold Height from Burn 25/10/17 - October Wave Fest continues...

by Alastair Mackenzie
Cross country flights and badge height gains don't have to stop during the late autumn, winter and early spring. In fact if you are looking to achieve a gold (3000m) or diamond (5000m) height gain from Burn then autumn and winter are the time to do it in the local mountain wave. However, in order to complete such tasks you are likely to need a cross country rating and a glider equiped with gps, cloud flying instruments and a serviceable oxygen system. You will also need to understand how to use this equipment and where high altitude flights can take place within the northern England non-SSR Transponder box and potentially the Yorkshire TRA-G wave boxes above that.
