In Belgium you can fly fantastically for hours above the dunes! Soaring is a separate branch of the sport that requires a very different technique than mountain flying. Moreover, it is an ideal addition to thermal flying. First being able to fly in the autumn and winter period when there are less thermals. Second it is a fantastic method to work on your launch technique. Via this club activity you can also obtain you soaring certification.
During this club activity we first teach you a good launch technique, necessary to be able to take-off with a lot of wind. Onces you control the proper technique, you can slowly work yourself up against the dune and then soar above the dunes.
Because you need even more specific wind conditions for soaring (between 10 and 20 km/h, with a wind direction perpendicular to the coastline and even the tides play a role), we work with a Whatsapp group, to which you will be added after registering for a Soaring day on the calendar. Via the whatsapp group “Airsport Soaring” we let you know one day in advance where we will meet. Very similar to the Club Flex activities.
