A preflight check consists of checking all vital parts of the glider for integrity. The purpose of a preflight check is to inspect for wear and damage to your glider as well as to make sure you have completed all the necessary steps in preparing it for flight. ~ U Safety Tip: Finding and correcting an equipment problem on the ground is infinitely better than doing so in the air. as a guide until you can perform the check flawlessly from memory. ---------------- ---------------- ---------'\ CH 4: Flight Familiarization 1 - 51 - 'igure 4-13: 'reflight Points It is normally easier to preflight check the canopy and lines once you have laid •· them out and straightened them, before you hook up to the harness (so you can walk around).

This change increases the angle of attack because the canopy retards a bit in relation to our body. In addition, the angle of the wing is measured with the straight line drawn from the trailing edge to the leading edge (defined in Chapter 2 as the chord). You can see from the figure that the more control line we apply the greater the angle of attack. Also, the more the airflow will be deflected as it passes over the wing. Figure 3-11: Different Angles of Attack With a high angle of attack we fly slowly while a lower angle of attack results in faster flying speeds.

Several things can occur during the packing and unpacking. The lines may entangle amongst themselves (remember those fishing reel snarls when you were a kid) or they may catch up on part of the harness. If the harness is removed the risers may twist or loop through some of the lines. The way to correct the above problems is to perform a line check. The simplest way to do this check is to stand facing the canopy with the risers of one side in your hand (with the harness attached, let it dangle).
