    Outlandings are an inevitable part of the cross-country soaring experience. As such, it is critical to be mentally and logistically prepared for this outcome on every cross-country flight. Take the time to review this lecture to assist you with minimising the risk to you and your glider when the time comes. Bernard is a German-born glider pilot and agent for a number of European gliding manufacturers. He moved to Australia in 1983 and has since risen to high standing within the sport, particularly through the role of head coach for SA/NT. Over 3500 hours and approximately 300,000 km of cross-country experience leave him well placed to discuss outlandings; indeed, Bernard has authored a book, "Advanced Soaring Made Easy" that covers this and many other important topics. Recorded at The University of Adelaide 19/09/2011.

            A modest expedition, no massive caravan, no 20 tons of survival gear and no shipping to the hot Saharan sands. 3 and a half men, loaded into a 21 year old Nissan, 1 motorbike, 2 kite buggies and an assortment of kites of all sizes including the magical 21m Speed3 Deluxe from Flysurfer, still in its wrapping shipped from Germany to the Gold Coast in Australia. All with one common goal, to try and be the first to cross the Simpson Desert, Australia’s red heart, by wind-power alone. Check out this adventure video about a dream that wants to become reality. All funds which were collected through and from this project have been given to the YHES House: http://www.yhes.org.au/

                      Properly analysing your cross-country flights should accelerate improvements in your soaring efficiency. This lecture shows how you can compare and contrast track deviations, effective glide ratios, percent time at nominated block speeds, etc. Matthew demonstrates how to use the interface and interpret the output from SeeYou with his own cross-country flights as examples. A free online analysis program, Skylines (available at skylines.xcsoar.org), is also introduced. Matthew Scutter is a junior glider pilot from Adelaide Soaring Club, who recently represented Australia at the 2011 Junior World Gliding Competition. He enjoys flying an LS4 cross-country most weekends and travelling to competitions, regattas and wave camps around Australia. Recorded at The University of Adelaide 15/10/2012.
