Mountain flying’s cool. Flatland flying – also. But when you mix the two… your line slicing through the lows, mids and highs like a good dj through a mix, a knife through cake, changing gears when you have to, but going ever forward, slicing, slicing through the layers – there’s something extra technical and fulfilling about it. Something that is very much present in Bulgarian flying and that I personally love and thrive in.
This is the new mixed terrain line I drew the other day, which happens to be the longest flight ever made from west Bulgaria – 274km. Too bad the conditions died out earlier than normal, so I couldn’t finish the flight at my chosen destination – the beach of Alexandroupolis, Greece. That’s alright, though – more cake for next time.
