fsx gliding tutorial using thermals


Hello this is competition sailplane, its a glider this is the aircraft reference shift 1(keyboard) and you’ll see the main panel closely Airspeed indicator Altimeter Vertical speed Variometer rate which will beep when you’re going up and give you a special tone as you coming down Speed brake lever I’ll show you what it is later on Flap position Elevatorr pitch trim position Tow release this switch will shut off the sound of this one, the Variometer but I like to hear the sound shift 1 again and we’re back to our original view in order to take off we need a plane we’ll call it by Control+ Shift+ Y and there is our plane we’re going up as I go up pull the gear(lever) down from this position to this position (gear is up) I want to go to 3,000 feet now we can release the (tow) plane and we’ll start gliding I want to go to this thermal the best gliding speed is around 57-60 now I’m going a little down, when it goes down this yellow arrow goes down it makes this sound when it goes up it makes a quicker sound …… as we heard before once I’ll get to this thermal I’ll go up some more and then I can continue to other thermals I’ll have to keep this speed around here, around 60 one flap down the flap should increase my chances… OK here I’m getting into the center of the thermal here.. I’m going up I want to go back to 3,000(feet) I’m suppose to go in a circle OK I’m going up to 3,000 let’s try to get to that thermal over there once I get to the center of it I’ll get a lift and then I can start rotating inside that spiral thermal like the birds do can you see the shake here I’m in the middle of the thermal, I’m going up I want to rotate a little bit I don’t want to leave it I’m going up inside the thermal I’ll go as high as I can with this thermal before I’ll move to another one let’s go for this one in front of us, it’s close here we are in the center of the thermal let’s go up a bit and then we’ll go to the next one here we’re moving up the right speed let’s go to this next one, next thermal we are 5000 feet we’re leaving this thermal and we’re going to the next one we have to keep our circle inside the thermal otherwise we wouldn’t have a lift we started at 3000 feet altitude and we’re going to 7000(feet) and we can continue so endlessly between the thermals so let’s go back to the airport so let’s look at the map, we started here we circled here we moved here and now we are here now you want to go back to the airport we have to lower our altitude so bring the flap up in order to lower our altitude I have to pull this speed brake lever you can see here it’s like walls coming out of the wings I’ll bring it up more it will be higher you can see it here this is our airport over here so I can see it I don’t need the GPS I want to go from the sea I have to go down to about a 1,000 feet right here so I’m going down see, this is gear down with one wheel this
is gear up speed brake lever 25% gear down 48% pull the lever, I’m too high and stop that’s it Bye
