Audio Speeds to Fly on Vario

Postby jj » Thu Sep 20, 2012 2:56 pm

Just talked with a glider pilot about varios.

In sailplanes they toggle the audio (with a switch) from indicating lift in a thermal to signalling speed to fly when crusing between thermals. The more advanced systems do this automatically.

You leave a thermal and it pitches up to have you slow down and down to have you speed up.

Found out the 6030 has this. Looking forward to trying it out.
