mochamon Posted May 14, 2008 Share Posted May 14, 2008 How dangerous are they? I took off last night at 8pm, 30 minutes before sunset, and 'found' a few thermals (around 2-300fpm up)(tow on the bump scale). The wing didn't do anything funny and I wasn't really getting tossed around that much, until I flew over a metal roof barn at 200 feet(three on thee bump scale). The upper winds were pretty strong as I was almost parked so I didn't want to go higher, but I also didn't want to hover around 200 feet with thermals. I think I might start flying first thing in the morning to avoid thermals all together, at least until I get some more experience. Does anyone have any input regarding evening thermals and if I am just being paranoid? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
