I initially thought I used to be going for a leisurely glider flight overlooking the villages of Tourrettes and Fayence, perched on the hills overlooking the Saint-Cassien lake. However when the pilot requested if I’d wish to strive an aerobatic flight the adrenaline began to fill my veins.
After a brief flight being pulled by a motorised mild plane, we reached our cruising altitude. Swiftly the one noise I may hear was the air caressing the aerodynamic physique of my glider and the pilot saying “hope you’re tucked in as we’re about to achieve some pace”. As quickly as he completed the sentence the glider plunged down vertically in the direction of the bottom, looping 360 levels seconds later.
This was one of the crucial exhilarating experiences I had in years.
