Description

Enjoy this full glider flight from take off to to landing from Heber Utah and flying over the amazing Wasatch Mountain range and plateau near Salt Lake City. The leaves are starting to change colors and I take advantage of the favorable westerly winds and play down just a few feet off the the tops of the mountain ridges and in the little valleys. This video gives a unique perspective of what it is like to fly a glider (sailplane) in the Rocky Mountains. The glider is an ASW27B and the camera is a GoPro Hero 3. Thanks for watching and I always enjoy your comments and questions! Bruno - B4
