HIGH PERFORMANCE STAGES
Also this year Il Centrale organizes advanced performance stages in the 2014 season which coexist with the traditional second period traditional theoretical and practical stages.
Where, when and with whom:
Stages are held from June to September in Rieti, from Monday to Saturday; there are several levels according to the attendants’ objectives, which can be summarized as follows:
- Knowledge of the Rieti flight area (from Sansepolcro to Roccaraso)
- Practice of mountain flight
- Increase of your own pace on chosen paths
- Achievement of FAI Diamond badges
Attendants will fly with their own single / two-seater gliders in the best period of Rieti summer season, except for the traditional competitions’ period. In case of a two seater glider availability, the pilot could fly all week with a coach.
Attendant pilots must have a good mountain flying experience, full control and effectiveness of the techniques of centering and climbing (also under the ridge), a good mental and physical shape and a strong interest in the stage objectives. 2015 FAI Card or a personal insurance against accidents is requested. Most of the vacancies are reserved for pilots with their own glider (single or two seater, necessarily equipped with logger, handheld PC, possibly FLARM or compatible anti-collision device and ELT or emergency tracking device). The two-seater gliders availability within our organization allows to receive pilots who, not owning a glider or just due to the fact that they do not have enough mountain flight or speed competition experience, are interested in flying with a coach.
Besides the daily flight with theme assignment during the briefing and subsequent analysis of the performed flights, the stage program includes lectures on the most important flight issues, some of which experienced during the flights.
How to apply and attendance fee:
Thanks to the availability of our coaches, costs are expressed as follows: € 600 for the attendance with pilot’s own glider (including a day in a two seater with the coach), and € 1,200 for the attendance in a two-seater provided by our organization. In case the stage flying days should be less than 4 because of the unfavorable weather conditions, you can use the reserve day (Sunday) or get a voucher for 50% off from the paid fee to be used to attend another stage or to use other AeCCVV services.
