Salut Line,

suite au décès de Philippe, mon frère m'a chargée de te demander de retirer

l'article qu'il avait soumis pour

le prochain survol (l'article qui parle entre autre de l'échange de

décollage). Benoît est en voyage au

Mexique, il écrira probablement un autre article à son arrivée.

Merci !

Jacinthe Durand

Moi ce que je lis dans ce message c'est que le HAGAR n'est pas

nécessaire pour CETTE compétition-là, et que

> NO Transport Canada hasn't agreed to this...

c'est-à-dire que Transport-Canada n'a pas donné d'autorisation

pour voler sans HAGAR à cette compétition.

Il semble que les pilotes de l'Ouest trouvent l'examen du HAGAR

tellement difficile qu'ils sont prêts à mettre en danger

le privilège d'auto-règlementation que nous accorde

Transports-Canada... ou est-ce que j'ai mal compris ?

Sujet: Comment utiliser l'energie du gradient de vent.

Aparemment, les planeurs arrivent a se servir de l'energie du gradient

de vent. Les albatros s'en servent pour parcourir de vastes etendues

d'eau sans battre des ailes.

Tu peux lire la technique (en Anglais mais bien illustree) :


ou un resume ici en Francais :


En theorie, on pourrait s'en servir au dessus d'un rotor, dans un fort

cisaillement vertical. Mais je vais laisser d'autres l'essayer.
