Climb and Speed averaged over 4 second intervals.

These values may be lower than those shown by a flight instrument, which has access to continuous raw data.

Red values indicate suspect data, because the tracklog contains invalid points.

Average Speed around course is measured from Start to Finish points.

Track Length is the cumulative distance between track points from Takeoff to Landing.

I committed aviation from a new site today, The Sow of Athol. A lovely hill just off the A9 by Dalnaspidal and not the 'pig of a walk up' you might expect! 😉 A band of 11 pilots gathered, some from as far away as Bristol! Tricky conditions on take off resulted in Richard and myself making a bit of a 'pigs ear' getting our wings in the air. Once up and away interesting and scenic flying took us south and over Schiehallion.

Warrick had been leading out the whole time and doing a great job.

As we approached crossing Loch Tay, Warrick came on the radio saying he was above a wooded knob in a good but rough climb. That was all Richard, Adrian and I needed and we made a bee line for Warwick's Wooded Knob. Once parked above his knob we waited for the anticipated surge of lift. When it came, what a rise it was! The best thermal of the day with a climb rate approaching 7m per second. Richard was moved to say over the radio "now that's what I came to Scotland for! " Thanks Warwick, your wooded knob will be remembered for a while!
