OCT. 2ND WEBINAR - Working Ridges A Primer

Please register for WORKING RIDGES: A PRIMER, held on October 2nd, 2018, 5:00 pm PDT at:


Picking off a thermal climb along a ridge is a necessary skill for the cross-country pilot, yet educational material for this is very sparse. Kempton will review the approach, risks, and factors involved with executing this process.

You'll learn about:
- What to look for as trigger points on a ridge
- Higher risk factors including uncommanded rolls, disorientation, stalls
- Next steps for those interested

The guest presenter for this webinar is cross-country pilot extraordinaire, Kempton Izuno. Kempton began soaring at age 14, captivated by tales of long cross-country flights. He earned his Gold badge at age 17 in a 1-26. Beyond writing and lecturing about soaring, he now focuses on mentoring other soaring pilots on better cross-country technique.

This is the 6th webinar in a series that focuses on a myriad of soaring topics ranging from soaring safety, off-field landing techniques, soaring weather, badge flying, setting up your glide computer, flying cloud streets, and oh, so, so much more!

Each webinar in this series is presented by a different expert and takes place live every 1st Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm central time. If you are unable to attend the live webinar, you can view it and all prior webinars at ssa.org, under the “Member Resources” tab > “Webinars.”
