Landing Tandem with Ali from Ken Howells on Vimeo.

Steps to Embed Video:

  1. Go to YouTube and open the page for your video.
  2. Get the embed code for the video - one way is to right-click the video and choose "copy embed code".
  3. Open crestlinesoaring.org and start a new post or comment.
  4. Click the 'Embed Media' button above the editor area
  5. Paste the embed code you copied earlier into the box that appears.
  6. Click 'Save' or 'Preview' at the bottom of the page.

In the Rich Text editor there will be a plain box representing your embedded video.  Be careful not to mess it up or delete it.
Make sure the 'Text format' drop-down selector doesn't say 'Plain text' before you save or preview.

I started working on my Glider License add on. I was studying thermaling. I came across this video on youtube.

Although it is presented toward sailplane flying, I found a lot of good information I thought might help some of us new HG pilots as well.

Thanks for posting that...it was nice seeing Andy in the video.  I'd love to hear the names of everyone else in the video.

Long hair days.  Year before I started so didn't recognize anyone. Still fun to watch

This awesome video needs to be in its own forum thread, so I'm posting it elsewhere and locking this thread, which is supposed to be informational.

THANKS VERY MUCH for posting this Mr. Ashmore!
