Kithaironas mt. rises his summit 1.400 m asl, over the ancient Plataies, Greece. It's an hour and half drive from Athens, capital of Greece and thus the main flight area for pilots living in Athens.
Friday afternoon (9/4/10, 18:00) and I just need some simple glides to test flight and trim my first cocoon harness. But the wind blows with more than 20 km/h from the side of the slope... Anyway we start to fly and spring instability reward us with a very good flight ! Strong, sweet thermals (+4m/s), inversion just under cloudbase at 2.200 m, very good average lift component of the air in extended area and my best flight for 2010 so far... My cocoon fits me like a glove due to the same hight of previous owner and the sensation in flight does not differ from my previews harness.
Summary : Much grater flight than expected !
