This month’s speech topic will be;

Overview and Comparison of Soaring Forecasting Tools
Speaker: Don Grillo

 

Synopsis: Once upon a time there was only looking out the window to try and guess if it might be a good soaring day. Then came Skew-T and Dr. Jack to add more ways of determining in advance weather and soaring conditions. Now there are three contenders for best soaring forecasting with better presentation and top quality insights into our important questions, “will this be a good day?” and “where can I find lift?”. This presentation will compare and contrast the features of SkySight, TopMeteo and XC Skies. What a wonderful way to start the soaring season!

The speech topic will be;

Overview of Emergency Location Devices – Sooner or later you will land out, it happens to all cross country soaring pilots. Most likely everything will turn out fine but there is a chance that it will not. You might land out in an area without cell phone coverage. You might be injured and need quick help. There are now multiple types of devices that can help you in these situations as well as provide other useful features. The speech will be an overview of the available emergency devices. We will cover features, costs (fixed and recurring), along with the pros and cons of each type.
