September Wave 22/09/21

September Wave 22/09/21

by Alastair Mackenzie
September and October are traditionally the best time of year for mountain wave flying in the UK. As the days shorten the thermals weaken but there's still some warmth in the sun. All you need then is warm sector stable air and a westerly or SW breeze with a steady increase in wind speed with height and conditions are perfect for wave. Its often quite challenging towing up through the rotor turbulence but this gives way to silky smooth laminar flow higher up with lift that extends way up beyond the lenticular clouds that line up parallel to the slopes that created them. Wave flying has a dream like quality that has to be experienced to be believed...
