March 2011: 3 XC-training in Narromine, report from Tomohiko "John" Iguchi
Narromine, NSW Australia in 17-27 Feb 2011. I rode glider "7L" that CS is a 4th-producted as "Discus CS".
Several days were good XC condition and climbed to 10,000FT. But then grain in the field is not reaped anywhere and cannot land in the paddock due to a historical flood. So I enjoyed soaring any day "plan positive & dicision conservative".

I have just come back from "Instructor training course" which is held at Lake Keepit.
We did "Lecture And Flight" from morning to night and did flight by A/T and which on the Lake Keepit airfield.
Finally, one Level 1 instructor and three Level 2 instructor were born in one week course.
As our gliding activities changed from local flight to cross-country soaring, we changed and improved the rules (including License system, training syllabus, OPS manual. Instructor manual, Radio license and OPS rule, etc.) with CASA.
The new system starts from May, and this is the first "Instructor Course".
I have work thoroughly, since I attend this course as the only "Coach and Instructor".
It is good opportunity to tell them my policy " Achievement and Safety are same direction"

December2008:5 Willy's Report
Comments from the pilot: Willy
This is my 5th trip to Narromine for glider flights. Every time I come here I discover new things, on this trip I had rented the ASW20b. The ASW20b was the first flapped aircraft I ever flew, and I have to say that I enjoyed every second of it. It climbs very smooth in lift, and glides very well with the flaps. On day 1 I had a nice local flight and on day 2, I was already flying 300km. I can certainly recommend Soar Narromine for the best weather conditions and best aircrafts. Also, I was able to learn many many things from Shinzo. Thank you very much.
Today Shinzo and I rigged the Nimbus 4DM together so I can get some coaching from him. The launch time was delayed to 14:30 due to this, but we had excellent weather with lots of cloud streets. We were flying until 19:00 and managed to fly 500km. I was able to learn about shifting gears (speed/decision making) when conditions were changing rapidly(good and bad).
Again we had great weather with thermals up to 9000ft in 10kts!! So we decided to do an out-and-return flight to Queensland. It was the first time for me to fly over mountains here in Australia. The view was excellent and I enjoyed it very much. At 16:30, we were 208km away from Narromine, and the weather wasn't getting any better, so Shinzo was flying instead of me, but I managed to learn lots from watching his flight. I learned that all that matters for a good pilot is the basics and the decision making. I noticed that Shinzo was sleeping in the back seat of the Nimbus 4DM from time to time yesterday, but not today.
I was flying the ASW20b today. A cold-front just went by yesterday, so I didn't think we would have good weather, but I was wrong! Shinzo taught me to take-off the earliest amongst the other pilots and fly as long as I can. So I did this, and by 17:30 thermals started to become very weak, and everyone else started to land. After this the wind became a bit stronger, and a cumulus wave started to form. The cloud base was 8000ft, but I was able to climb all the way to 10000ft above the clouds in the wave!! It was a very nice view, and I wish I was there longer. One more thing I learned today was that imagination is very important for soaring, Thank you Shinzo!
