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 vehicle Retrieval vehicle Launch control Viking Attach outermost cable to glider

10 Launch Caravan

11 Aero Tow

12 Aero Tow only used at ACCGS

13 Viking – Instrument panel

14 Air-brakes

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

16 Thermal Sunlight heats ground Ground warms air Warm air rises

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

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

19 Cross Country Gliding Hopping from one thermal to another

20 Cross Country Gliding

27 Aircraft axes

28 PITCH Lateral Axis

29 ROLL Longitudinal Axis

30 YAW Vertical Axis

31 Elevator

32 Control column forward

33 Elevator moves down

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

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

36 Ailerons

37 Control column right

38 Right aileron up Left aileron down

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

40 Control column left Left aileron up Right aileron down Aircraft rolls left Summary

41 Rudder

42 Right foot forward

43 Rudder moves Right

44 Aircraft yaws right

45 You will wear a parachute

46 Getting strapped in

47 Ready for Take Off!

55 DID YOU KNOW…….?

56 The biggest glider of them all!

57 QUESTIONS?

58 Objectives Know the 2 types of glider used by the ATC Describe 2 methods of launch Know the stages of ATC gliding training Name the local Volunteer Gliding Schools Understand the principles of soaring Understand the effects of the controls

59 Knowledge Check Name the 2 types of ATC glider How is the Viking glider launched? What is the main difference between the Viking and Vigilant? What is a thermal? How does a glider pilot use thermals? Where is your local VGS?

60 Knowledge Check What is GIC? At what age can you apply for a Gliding Scholarship? What happens to the elevators if you move the control column forwards?

61 Elevator moves down

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

63 What happens when you move the Control Column to the right?

64 Right aileron up Left aileron down

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

66 Knowledge Check What do these badges represent?
