6 Safety reminders Collision risk notes (Rieti 2008)

7 Safety Reminders 1. When thermalling, gliders must turn in the same direction. It is unacceptable to have gliders turning in opposite directions in close proximity to each other.

8 Safety Reminders 2. When you join thermals do not pull up through the middle of a gaggle of circling gliders. This creates a very dangerous situation. Plan to join the thermal from the edge and integrate yourself into the turn in a way that does not threaten the other gliders already in the thermal. Do not just focus your vision on the gliders in the thermal, keep a lookout for other gliders that might also be joining the thermal.

9 Safety Reminders 3. When in a gaggle maintain your separation from other gliders. In a gaggle you have to accept that you cannot make the optimum use of the thermal because your freedom to manoeuvre is limited by the other gliders in the thermal and do not make violent manoeuvres. Your vision should be concentrated outside the cockpit tracking all the gliders that are close to you.

10 Safety Reminders 4. When you are with other gliders in the cruise maintain enough separation so that you can avoid the other glider if it makes an unexpected manoeuvre. When you pull up into a thermal think and behave as if you have another glider in your blind spot.

11 Safety Reminders 5. As a competition progresses pilots become gradually desensitised to the risk of collision in gaggles and their personal safety personal margins are eroded. Remain concentrated on this risk!

12 Safety Reminders 6. Lookout! Lookout! Lookout! Use the fighter pilots scan. On blue days you need to focus on a distant object before you start your scan.
