2019 X-Alps pilots, Cody Mittanck and Gavin McClurg, took their fresh Zeolites for an amazing flight in the state of Nevada.
@codymittanck @gavinmcclurg
Cody reports: "I just got back from another spring trip to Nevada with the X-Alps Team USA boys, Gavin and Willi. We did a recon trip there last summer and had some great exploratory flights. This year we knew a bit more about what to expect and the conditions we needed for a big one. According to the models, Central Nevada tends to show some of the best flying conditions so we lined up a launch to take advantage of that area. On this particular day the models showed perfect conditions for a record flight -- light surface winds, strong winds aloft, strong lift, clouds, and low CAPE. During the first half of the flight we nearly landed on each glide. The lift was extremely broken and the clouds were sparse. We hung in with the frustrating conditions because the alternative was landing in the middle of nowhere with the potential of dust devils and long walks out. With a slow average speed we pressed on crossing over long desolate basins and barren mountain ranges. It is beautiful in it's simplicity out there, yet wild, dangerous, and intimidating. The last half of the flight conditions dramatically improved. Cloud streets began forming and tailwinds pushed us 90 kph on glides. Base rose to 16k and froze camera batteries and fingers. By the end of the day we flew 305 Km. The place has much more potential, but unlike some other lines in the western US, it's not going to give it up easily.

A big part of this mission was to fly the Zeolite and give it a proper test before taking it to the X-Alps. I've been flying the Z-Alps the last couple of XC seasons and I immediately felt right at home under the Zeolite. At one point I was 50 meters off the deck trying to work an extremely rowdy desert thermal and the Zeolite never even took a tip collapse. Unbelievable that a 2-liner can be this light and still be so easy to fly”

Congrats and Cheers from all the Ozone team.

“One of the only constants, is change. We used to send letters that would take months to arrive in order to talk with our friends then the phone was invented, then the email. Now, you slide into my DMs. Maybe I’m oldschool but I still prefer to come to your house and knock on your roof, er, door, to see if you want to come out and play” @zach_carbo
