How-to-fly-XC-on-an-EN-A  

飛行員好好看清楚       看~ 清~ 楚~

為什麼 台灣新手 受傷率 退場率 這麼高

不要自信以為你可以 

不要聽信學長前輩說  En-B (DHV 1-2)也可以

不要迷信高級傘就會比較好

你……… 還不是時候!

 

HOW TO FLY XC ON AN EN A PARAGLIDER  如何用ENA的傘越野飛行   翻譯_Q

 

Your first wing is your most important one. It is the bedrock of your flying career. You need to be totally comfortable on as safe a wing as possible as you slowly become familiar with the strange, turbulent, ever-changing world of the sky.

 

你第一頂傘是很重要的一頂,是你整個飛行生涯的基石。

在你慢慢熟悉陌生、混亂多變得天空世界時,一頂全然舒適、安全的傘是很重要的。

 

And with a modern EN A glider, you have the perfect wing to do just that. EN As climb as well – if not better – than other classes of wing, and I believe offer better ‘real’ performance for early pilots than any other.

 

一頂現代ENA傘具,是一頂可以讓你達成那個目標的完美傘具。

ENA的傘爬升率跟其他等級的傘差不多(就算沒有更好),同時我認為,對於早期的飛行員來說,它提供了更好的實際性能。

 

Simply put, they look after themselves and let you get on with the job of learning to fly really well. They’re brilliant fun, too. I’ve flown recent XCs on an EN A, EN C and competition wing: the EN A was by far the most enjoyable wing, dispelling all my ideas of dull handling. It was pure joy.

 

簡單的說,它們(指傘)自己照顧自己,而讓你順當的好好學習飛行。它們也是無敵充滿樂趣的。

我最近用了ENA、ENB以及競賽傘越野。而ENA的傘是這裡面最有樂趣的一頂,不算上我一般的控傘水平的話。那是純粹的喜悅。

 

Some would say you shouldn’t move on from your first wing until you’ve perfected your launches, thermalled it to base, set off on your first cross countries and finally wrung the life out of it on an SIV course.

 

有人說,你在能夠做到下面幾件事情以前,不應該換掉你的第一頂傘:

完美的起飛、盤到氣流頂端,開始你的第一次越野飛行,然後利用SIV課程(譯:很傷傘滴)榨乾它剩餘的生命。

 

The reasoning is this: as a new pilot, your workload in the air is phenomenally high. You have so much to think about to stay safe. During your first 200 hours, you’re looking to convert as much of that workload to intuition as possible, so the basics – ground-handling, glider control, thermalling and gliding efficiently and safely on speedbar – become second-nature. This’ll allow you to free up some mental space to deal with decision-making, route-planning and so on – and only then are you ready to fly a higher aspect wing.

 

這樣的理由是:一個菜鳥飛行員在天上的負擔(譯:指因為應付各種狀況的能力不足衍生的負擔)已經明顯夠重了。

你會無敵想要安全一點。在你的頭兩百小時,你正在嘗試著盡可能的把那種負擔轉變成一種直覺(譯:身體的本能反應),

因此基礎的練習—地面鬥傘、空中控傘、盤氣流、然後使用加速器正確而安全的滑行(要變成第二本能)。

這(譯:指前面那些練習)將會讓你空出一些心思來處理如:做決定、路線規劃等等之類的事情,

只有這樣,你才算是準備好去飛高級傘了。

 

Indeed, most pilots move on from their first wing far, far too quickly, sold on the empty promise of ‘better performance’, when in reality they would progress far quicker and become more natural pilots by flying their first wing to the absolute limit of their capabilities first.

 

確實,多數的飛行員傘跳級的太太太快了!!同時也被「較佳性能」這種空虛的承諾給出賣了!!

實際上,當飛行員們用他的第一頂傘還飛得比較快也比較自然,因為他們先碰上了能力上的絕對限制。

 

Here’s how to fly a lower performance wing really well.

 

再來就告訴你怎們用一頂性能沒那麼好的傘飛出好的結果。

 

1. Learn to climb well
Low aspect wings climb tighter in the core than higher aspect wings. You can spin them up on a sixpence and crank them inside their higher aspect counterparts. The right pilot should be able to outclimb competition wings with them.

 

1.學著盤快一點

 

低等級的傘相對於高等級的傘會更容易保持在氣流核心。你能夠用更小的轉彎半徑轉彎,而且盤在高級傘的內側。

一個合格的飛行員應該要能把競賽傘擠到外面去。

 

2. Learn to ride low saves
Low aspect wings are easier to catch low saves with. Because they don’t move about much, you can concentrate on the feel of the thermal.

 

2.學習駕馭低空生存模式

 

低等級的傘很容易進入低空生存模式。而由於他們不會跑得那麼快,所以你更能專注在感受氣流上。

 

 

 

3. Fly good lines
Your glide and speed won’t be as good as pilots on high aspect Bs and Cs, so you have to learn to feel ‘lifty’ lines of air. They do exist.

 

3.飛行在最佳路徑上

 

你的滑降比跟傘速都比ENB、ENC的傘差,所以你必須學著感覺有升力的地方,他們真的存在。

 

4. Climb right to the top
You won’t be able to glide as far, so altitude is way more important than distance. The trick then is to really learn to work each climb right to the top.

 

4.盤到最高點

 

你不像人家能滑那麼遠,所以高度就比距離重要很多。這邊的秘技就是要在每次爬升都盤到最高點。

 

5. Avoid sink
Stay high and under cumulus, or milky patches to stay in good air, and stay on the upwind side of clouds. You don’t get so many plan B, C or Ds because you don’t have the reach, so fly conservatively.

 

5.避免下沉

 

待在高處,待在好的空域,並待在雲的上風處。不要跟著高級別的傘,因為你到不了他們要去的地方,所以飛得保守一點。

 

6. Keep learning
To keep learning, make it your goal to keep learning. A lot of us get lazy, and think we’ll get better just by going flying. We don’t. We need to learn from our mistakes and set ourselves goals.

 

When you think you’re ready to change to a higher performance wing, stop and ask yourself which of these you haven’t yet done… and ask yourself again if you’re really ready.

 

6.持續學習

 

持續學習,把你的目標訂在持續學習。我們常常變得懶惰,然後以為只要一直飛就會進步。那是不可能滴!!

我們需要透過錯誤學習並設定我們的學習目標。當你認為你已經可以換高級傘時,停一下並問問你自己下面這幾項你哪些還沒做到?

如果你覺得真的準備好了,你還是得再問一次!!

 

Have you flown a few cross countries? Done an SIV course? Ridden a leeside thermal that feels like it wants your wing anywhere but in the core? Glided on full bar at cloudbase? Because you’re only holding yourself back if you haven’t yet mastered these skills on an EN A first.

 

你已經飛過幾次越野了嗎?上過SIV課程了嗎?有在氣流的背風處感受過不斷被推出氣流核心了嗎?

在雲底使用全加速飛行過嗎?如果你還沒用你ENA的傘掌握這些技能,那你不過是在扯自己後腿而已。
