Ozone team member, @jockysanderson, is now offering two of his best educational free-flight films, free of charge. This is a great opportunity to learn from one of the best. Thanks Jocky!
In his own words: "In these trying times I would like to share my films Security in Flight II and Performance Flying with you, free of charge. This way you can watch and learn from them in the safety of your home. We plan to make and share more tutorial clips as techniques and filming technologies evolve, so stay safe and I look forward to sharing flights with you all when we are through this"

Looking back on one of the best days of the year, our friend Wayne Seeley @the_flyingphotographer recounts his last epic flight before the world, for many of us, ground to a halt…
“After what seemed like the longest winter for years with storm after storm battering the uk , Monday 16th gave the first promising forecast of the year. A few of us headed to Frocester Hill on the edge of the Cotswolds, not the best hill choice but the best option for the day.
The wind was light and not quite on the hill but a bonfire out front and some circling birds tempted us off the hill into a slow climb. Graham Steel and myself slowly climbed out to a low cloudbase of around 3000ft asl. We pointed our Zenos downwind and set off not expecting much but were soon climbing again, a few hours later we had covered 50km and the sky improved and base had risen to 4000ft+. The next 50k went well , nice climbs, nice clouds but super cold. We passed 100km approaching Northampton and with it being soooo cold we decided to land at the train station (117k) . During the train ride home the uk government announced plans to limit /avoid public transport if possible which could result in March 16th being the only logged flights we may score for a while ! The following day the UK XC league was suspended as not to encourage pilots to use public transport to get home .
Fingers crossed this will be a short term measure , if not then this flight will have to keep me satisfied until things calm down for everyone”
"A couple of weeks ago we went out to fly and Gemma got to practice her new favourite manoeuvre: Top Landing!
So, in this video, Gemma talks us through the process of learning with a few top tips from her perspective. And. of course, some playfulness by Andre"

“The wind at the waterfall bowl is not so strong today, so it would be possible to safely get in there without a strong venturi - something that we haven’t done before and which looks worthy of a shortening of our XC and of making Isaac wait. .
When we get in there and see the cliffs and falling water from up close - not from a kilometer anymore but from a hundred meters, and then from ten - we’re so stunned that we’re no longer thinking about our XC, we’re mesmerized by the colors of these ancient paintings on the cliffs and just keep soaking up their browns and reds and yellows, the blacks left over from the water, the textured whites that look like lichens and the flat whites too, the greens of bushes (or are they grasses?) for a splash of life, and all that crowned by jungle at the top, from which, on some branches sticking out and over the abyss, a flock of monkeys come out to check us out, while four hundred meters further, at the mouth of the biggest waterfall, some kids from the village just behind now take position, greeting us with joyous screams and waves. And scream I also do, more times than I can remember.
We soar this face from left to right to left and back, while always climbing in the breeze, but instead of looking forward, we are looking in, towards the cliffs, that’s why we’re in here - to look - and then when fifty meters over them we fly out and do some wingovers or big ears to come back down low and back into the bottom of it all; we do this many times; we’re in the Iten gallery, and what a gallery it is! I hope you like the photos Niki took of me on it, before we kept on going to the flatlands, fully ballasted with images of nature’s art (which made us way too heavy - a good excuse to then bomb out)."

“Another day in Wonderland. Aotearoa (the land of the long white cloud) for those of you who don’t know is the offical name of our beautiful New Zealand and it’s quite fitting.
What a morning with @angus_sellen”
