2017 VSA Coaching Week

The premier coaching event of the VSA calendar is again being held as a prelude to Horsham Week 28 Jan to 3 Feb 2017. The week offers:

  1. Presentations from Top Australian Glider Pilots on how to fly further and faster.
  2. Flights in 2 seater gliders with cross country coaches.
  3. Tasking and task planning support for single seater flights.
  4. Detailed flight analysis to help you see where you can improve.

 

The week is suitable for a wide range of glider pilots - from those who have recently flown solo and looking to try cross country to advanced competition pilots looking to optimise their performance.

Cost for attendance is around $100 per person plus accommodation, food, launches and glider hire. Accommodation options include tent sites and bunk rooms on the airfield and motels in town. Some kitchen facilities are also available to participants.

Horsham week contestants are also welcome to join in and get some practice.

Go to Horsham Week website for more information. Those interested in attending are asked to contact David Meredith as early as possible, advising their skill level and whether they will be bringing a glider or seeking flights in 2 seaters.
