What can I say about a very special day in Patagonia? We planned this flight on Skysight two days before and the plan worked perfectly. We expected the first leg to be slow with a 70km gap just after the start and we expected absolutely ripping lift north of that. The plan kept us flying in the good lift without wasting any time crossing gaps.

The Skysight forecast is so precise that we did not need to look at clouds to find lift. When the clouds went one way and Skysight went another way we found it was better to follow the Skysight prediction. We literally do not need to look out the window to find lift.

What about the final glide? Over 500km from home with two hours to sunset and 70,000ft altitude required we were actually worried about coming home early. A slow spot near the finish, thanks to the 70km gap, put paid to that idea. We made our goal before last light. The Arcus J is equipped with FAA compliant nav and strobe lights.

Thanks to Ezeiza Center for being very patient with us all day. Thank you to our crew: Tago, Tim, Sandra and Dana. Thank you to Miguel who coordinated the paperwork required for all gliders in Argentina to do this wave flying. Thank you to my great copilot Morgan, who has recently acquired some very high altitude experience in gliders.
