Never tried the glider tho, I believe that this has been addressed in FSX properly. Did see an FSX site , that is collecting users adventures. Will see if I still have the address. Ah, Here it is _http://fsxmission.com/live/_ (http://fsxmission.com/live/) You may have already seen it. Frank Thanks Frank. The glider mission was good, it leads you to thermals, which you use to climb high enough to go through gates. You then proceed to a ridge to get the updraft, and then tackle more gates, then finally across to the last lot of lift (forget what its called), and a final set of gates. Then back to the starting airfield, you need to use the spoilers to get down. Covered an awfult lot of gliding know-how in just one mission. Frank T.
