A full complement of pilots headed out to the tow road for the first promising cross country day of 2019. We arrived early and flew all day. At one point we had four pilots in the air who all headed out cross country.
Light winds from the northwest pushed us parallel to the Mississippi River bluffs headed toward Chester, Ill. Strong, spring thermals with big sink pockets in between, blue sky day.
Present for the flying were Richard, Grace, Chris, Reddy and Lindsay.
We are a group of paragliding pilots based in the St. Louis area.
