    1. Basic Principles of AirmanshipGliding

    2. Objectives Know the 2 types of glider in the Air Cadets Describe 2 methods of launch Know the stages of Air Cadet gliding training Name the local Volunteer Gliding Squadrons Understand the principles of soaring Understand the effects of the controls.

    3. Viking - A Conventional Glider

    4. Tandem seats Cadet sits in front

    5. Viking – Safety Briefing Video

    6. Winch Launch

    7. Cable Release

    8. Winch

    9. Attach outermost cable to glider Viking Launch control Winch vehicle Retrieval vehicle

    10. Launch Caravan

    11. Aero Tow

    12. Aero Tow only used at ACCGS

    13. Viking – Instrument panel

    14. Airbrakes

    15. Vertical Speed Indicator Why is this important in a glider?

    16. Thermal Sunlight heats ground Ground warms air Warm air rises

    17. Forming thermals Cumulus cloud formed by rising area Cold air sinking Sun’s Rays Warm air rising (thermals) Wind Concrete area of airfield

    18. Using Up-Currents on Hills Area of best lift High ground forces moving air upwards

    19. Cross Country Gliding Hopping from one thermal to another

    20. Cross Country Gliding

    21. Cross Country Gliding

    22. Vigilant – A self-launch glider 2 seats side by side Self Launch (motor)

    23. Vigilant – Safety Briefing Video

    24. Aircraft axes

    25. Lateral Axis PITCH

    26. Longitudinal Axis ROLL

    27. Vertical Axis YAW

    28. Elevator

    29. Control column forward

    30. Elevator moves down

    31. Nose pitches down And continues to do so until the control column is placed in a neutral position Airspeed will increase

    32. Control column back Elevator moves up Nose pitches up Speed will decrease. Summary

    33. Ailerons

    34. Control column right

    35. Left aileron down Right aileron up

    36. And continues to do so until the control column is placed in the neutral position Aircraft rolls right

    37. Control column left Left aileron up Right aileron down Aircraft rolls left. Summary

    38. Rudder

    39. Right foot forward

    40. Rudder moves right

    41. Aircraft yaws right

    42. You will wear a parachute

    43. Getting strapped in

    44. Ready for Take Off!

    45. Gliding Opportunities – Horizons Unlimited Video

    46. Progressive Gliding Training Gliding Induction Course You are eligible now Gliding Scholarship From 16 years old AGT Advanced Gliding Training.
