Friday April 27th & Saturday April 28th

Or more like weather education. I've posted information I use to help figure out the day. Often I'll also post graphics with explanations of "why" the weather guessers think the day is good.

Friday April 27th & Saturday April 28th

Post by Chip » Tue Apr 24, 2007 9:04 pm

Friday's the day to watch ........... :o

Looks like "potential" altitudes around 9 - 10k and higher down range. May be the day to fly to Crestline. Looks like a convergence day down the San Gabriel's.

Saturday is still a day out from prediction, we'll see by 4:00 pm on Wednesday.

Updated BlipMaps show Saturday looking SWEEEET. Altitudes approaching 11k :o , light winds aloft and strong lift (convergence likely).

It's been a couple of years since we got some good spring flying. If one is to believe the BlipMaps then it should be a good couple of days.

Friday's looking at a solid 10k still.

You might want to consider Pine for Saturday. Great XC potential for the more experienced and light winds for the newbies.

Pine Saturday

Pine does look like the best bet. Anyone interested?

Not to rub it in or anything, but you missed a good day. I was the low man of our group with a 68 miler to Mohave (got above 15k over Frazier). Tony Deleo made it all the way into Lone Pine. The other two pilots I was flying with landed near Garlock.

I know ............ :x

Saw the posts on the SBSA site and wanted to kick myself. Had a few family obligations that day. Friday was OK, but nothing like you all had.

I think we'll get a good crew to Pine sometime in May.

Hope to see you there. Sorry Greg, we should have jumped all over it.
