Glider aerobatics training camp in Lodrino 2011 organized by the Swiss Aerobatics Gliding association. This was an intense week of competition training alongside the Swiss national team. The pilots in order of appearance: Jochen, Marc, Georg, Béatrice, Pierre-Yves and Daniel. Special thanks to our instructors Christian, Manfred, Fredy, Philippe and Sandor and the warm welcome and great support from the Gruppo Volo a Vela Ticino.

This video is dedicated to and in memory of Pierre-Yves, who passed away in 2011 only months after flying in Lodrino. It was his camera and his idea to stick it on the glider’s nose. It saddens me that I didn’t get a chance to show him the final video, I am sure he would have liked it.
