11-08-2010 > 162 Km X-country flight with a Zenith
Cesc Gómez has just reported an amazing open distance flight of 162 km last April. Yes we know this is not a record and there are much longer flights done with gliders on this category. The important point about this is that Cesc has done it in his first real flight on this glider (Windtech Zenith) after arriving in Brazil -Governador Valadares- for holidays.
«I only have done a two minutes glide down flight before my trip to Brazil. It really did shock me how easy was to adjust my flight stile to my new wing (Windtech Zenith). It is true that the conditions were very light and the meteo wind was non existent. In the first three hours I have only moved forward 50 km. Later on I felt more confident and was making longer glides since there were no loss of altitude between clouds and the next three hours I double my speed and the distance landing near Sêrro. This wing is very easy and intuitive. It does find by itself the thermal's core and even is super fast you can get the most out of it in light conditions. My last record was a bit more of 80 km.»
