Sironi - New Italian Gliding Record

altOur heartiest compliments to Alberto Sironi.

Today he concluded a flight totalling 1217 Km during a 1000 km triangle in an Arcus: a new Italian record !!

The day was not an easy one due to significant turbulence.

The flight also confirmed the predictions by RASP of a very strong wave effect.

In the first photo, we see his rate of climb as 11.2 m/sec at 14:29 GMT just south of Aosta.

The second photo shows the wave effect forecast by RASP which Alberto benefitted from (14.00 GMT). The scale has a maximum of 11.75 m/sec., during which, at 14:29 Alberto achieved 11.2 m/ sec.

Alberto Sironi is a participant in our "City of Turin Trophy " gliding competition.
