David Pietsch from Canberra GC has produced a set of training and safety notes for our annual wave soaring camp for many years. His guidance document has evolved and been improved over time. The current 2014 version is now a very mature, polished product, with some great attachments all relevant to flying in the hazardous high altitude environment. I endorse its contents without reservation.
It also contains several blunt warnings to pilots, and some disclaimers regarding the use of these notes, individual responses to high altitude flying in a sailplane varying widely between pilots, and these notes to be used at pilots own risk. I agree with these disclaimers and cautions.
You can download these notes from here or use the
