I had to run out of town for a family emergency, and I won't be back in time for the trip. Hope you guys have a good time.

This website will convert IGC to KML. It also provides a timestamp option so you can animate your track in Google Earth. http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/map_input?form=googleearth I don't think it does the cool tail length thing that OP has in his video, but you can colorize the path by different facto...

I guess in video games, you can launch unhooked and everything will be fine.

i'm sure you will get an answer to this (if not many of them) but to help frame the answer, who is asking the question? are you a sylmar pilot? do you fly hang gliders? I don't see a way to connect a forum username to a real person name. Yea, I'm a Sylmar pilot... H2 so I'm not surprised you don't ...

Thanks for the note about "sink management", Malury. It helped me have a really great flight last weekend. Usually I just scrub around looking for thermals the whole time, but keeping the sink part of the equation in mind, I focused more on conserving my height (turning wider or flying straight in l...

wow, amazing footage. Our feathered peers are beautiful but it is true that sometimes they are not looking where the are flying or clearing their turns. We've all seen this. Like in video, I have done the same thing, yell when you feel they aren't looking. This seems to help, but you have to do it ...

I'm in, but I'm still concerned about not being experienced enough for the trip, as well as being on a falcon. It sounds like I could fly the coast pretty well, but heading out in the desert seems like it may require more in skills and equipment than I have.

Do the restrictions for P2s also apply to H2s as far as instructional days vs. iquique days goes? I will probably have about 12-15 hours of airtime by November. This trip looks incredible, I am very interested and overdue for a vacation :) And $150 seems ridiculously cheap for a hang glider. I would...

OP wrote:From that I would think that we will receive detailed walk throughs and quality instruction. I'm guessing that boating around the area and landing on the beach would be in the H2 skill range with supervision. I can ask for you.
If this is the case, I may be interested as well.
