Bones was talking about the lift he experience from the hills when flying north 
somewhere on a test 
flight. try putting "test flight" or "hills" in the search box.  The lift 
caused by the wind hitting 
the hills and being deflected upwards is technically called orographic.  It can 
often be seen 
visually by a cap or ridge of cloud near the top of the mountain.
