Pilot:

So far this wave season has not been near a good as last season. So, even though the forecast was for less than optimum wave, I went for it. The winds were more southwesterly than desired so it was best between CinderCone and Big Pine. Other places I found all kinds of traps. There were more wave clouds than normal and not all of them were honest which caused me to be faked out a couple of times. The 3rd trip north was aborted due to sink and turbulence at a line of cloud jutting out from the Sierra. Getting home from Inyokern was a challange due to a 45 to 50 knot quartering headwind. For this flght raw free distance using up to 3 turnpoints is 989.9 km ... the altitude penalty reduces it to a world record claim for ultralight gliders of 886.3 km. This was my 5th flight and 1st cross country in a SparrowHawk. Thank you, Greg Cole, for loaning me the SparrowHawk ... for its wing loading it performs very well and it has great flying qualities ... plus a "sweet" handicap. Thank you, Jackie, for the retreive.
