OCT 16 WEBINAR - How to Find Thermals, P1

Please register for HOW TO FIND THERMALS: PART 1, held on October 16, 2018, 5:00 pm PDT at:


This is the 5th webinar in a series that focuses on thermal and cross-country soaring covering practical beginner-level to advanced material presented by Eric Carden.

This lecture is part 1 of a two-part series presented by Eric Carden that discusses how to find thermals - from thermals marked by gliders, birds, clouds, etc. to deciding where to go for the greatest chances of finding an “unmarked” thermal. This lecture discusses many thermal-finding topics - but none of them to any great level of detail. This lecture series contains a fair amount of thermal theory, which you can store away to help you make better sense of the complex scenarios real life presents.

With over 25 years of soaring experience, Eric has coached at contests, club functions, and one-on-one with students. He is passionate about helping pilots learn how to stay up and go places!

Eric's “how to” webinar series take place every 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm central time, and covers practical beginner-level to advanced material.
