THAT’S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE IN PRACTISE
In the beginning, we are forming teams for the first half of the course. We try to respect all wishes of the trainee concerning coach and type of glider. After the weather briefing, the teams set their goals for the day. These can be quite different, depending on previous (Namibia-) experience. In the following days, the flights will be analysed by each crew in the evening. Next morning a peer review in the group will be made before the weather briefing. Based on the experience and cognition each team determines an individual task for the day. Only for the last day of each training period (3 days with the same coach), we will set a common competition task with regatta-start, like in a Grand Prix.
Experience of the previous events showed extraordinary progress with these methods. “Bad habits”, which emerged during years of lonely single-seater-flying, can be detected and corrected easily (scanning, control-inputs…). In addition, the mental abilities will be checked by the trainers (decision making, negative beliefs, risk management…).
To get the chance to learn from more than one expert, the pairings will be changed in the middle of the course. Apart from the immediate progress, every participant will get an idea about his own strong and weaker points. By that, the basis for further individual training is created.
If you wish to implement the lessons learned right after the seminar, you should book the required glider early!
We are happy to support you in any way in preparing this trip.If you wish, we organize airline-tickets, car-rental or possible other activities for you or your company, to make it an unforgettable event.
