for great services
I have been following your
website for over a year now and I have finally
decided to email you. I find you site to be top
notch; it is very comprehensive and fun to read.
There is so much valuable information; I wish
other companies would follow your example. I visit
almost daily and you always exceed my expectation.
Great stories, nice pictures, improvements,
technical stuff, it is all there. I wish I
was living in Canada close to you so I could fly
with you and share the fun times you seem to have.
I know it is hard work to run the business and
keep the site constantly updated but it looks like
you really enjoy what you are doing. Please keep
the good work. I hope to meet you one day.
PS: I envy your students for
having such great instructor and a guide.

Hi Andre, I got the plastic tip for my cage and
thank you very much. I will owe you for that. I
also had passed my pre-solo exam with 96%. >
CONGRATULATION!!! I told you will do it. As far
as the plastic coupling, just buy me a beer next
time. Take care. A.
Awesome thermal flight at Bieda's
I have enjoyed the tight and sharp
thermals for about 45 min with the highest rate of
climb at 17 ft/sec and highest climb, straight to
the cloud base at 3800 ft AGL. Thermaling is
definitely easier with this DHV 2 glider but you
have to keep your eyes on it all the time. I was
readjusting my vario at one point and not holding
my brake lines and as I exited relatively strong
thermal Brontes surged to approximately 75 degrees
ahead of me. I am definitely not used to this from
Lift gliders. Yikes! For sure more agile wing,
certainly not suited for beginners. On the other
hand, centering the thermals was a piece of cake
and the glide ratio is unbelievable. I also like
the higher trim and accelerated speed.
Read the full story here.
Great flight. Can not wait to get
out again. Since the field conditions at Bieda's
are suitable for flying and training I am
officially announcing the start of the season
2004. Those of you who would like to resume
training please email.
