Want to Flutter? Take a Breeze Flight!
The Importance of Checking Weather: a blog about exploring strong winds and what its like flying in them.
It’s always important to check the weather before taking flight, but especially for flitters.
Strong gusts can come out of nowhere, and can be incredibly dangerous. Even the strongest flitters can be blown off course by strong gusts, and no one wants that to happen.
Even if you’re not a flitter, it’s important to check the weather if you are planning on going outside at all!!**
The weather is a fickle thing. One minute it’s sunny and warm, the next its windy and cold. Also, in the blink of an eye it can go from warm to freezing.
This means that if you want to fly on a day when there are strong winds, you are going to need to be prepared. Always check the weather report before flying.
I have made this mistake once or twice in my life and let me tell you, it sucks. I remember one day I decided to go flying without checking the weather. When I got there, it was windy and freezing. It was not fun at all. I nearly got frostbite on my fingers! Luckily my mom was there with me and she had brought hand warmers which saved me that day.
My advice to you is this: Do not make the same mistake I did! Check the weather before going out to fly a kite!
Since the beginning of time, birds have had to flap their wings in order to fly. They have evolved over time to take up flight and soar high in the sky. This is what makes them so beautiful and unique compared to other species.
Birds are not born with wings; they grow them over a period of time. During this process, they learn how to control their wings and use them as an extension of themselves in order to achieve flight. When we see birds soaring through the air, we see a perfect example of how all living things can adapt, evolve and thrive within their environment.
Birds are not limited by gravity because they can fly. They use the wind currents around them for lift and travel at speeds that exceed those of any man made aircraft! Breeze Airlines has decided to capitalize on this with “breeze” flights through strong winds for adrenaline junkies who love nature.”
In the world of flying, there are many weather hazards that can make a flight impossible. When these situations arise, the flutter team has to pause their flights and wait until the weather clears up. In this blog post, we will discuss one of these occurrences, strong winds.
Strong winds can be detrimental to our ballooning team. During these situations, it is very dangerous to be flying in a hot air balloon as they can easily cause our balloons to crash. If you have ever been caught in a storm or extremely windy day before, you know that it can be quite difficult to stand still and hold your ground. Strong winds are the same for our balloons which makes it very risky for our team to fly during these conditions.
Our flutter team usually has a few ways of checking for strong wind conditions. One way is that they use our website to check on wind speed and direction at different altitudes above the ground. From this information, we determine if it is safe for us to fly or not. Our team also takes weather predictions into account when planning flights and may postpone flight if predicted weather conditions indicate strong winds at an altitude that is too dangerous for our balloons (usually anything over 8-10 mph).
We hope that everyone understands how important it is
There are still many people who are not aware of the importance of checking the weather before flying. They go out to fly, and suddenly, they’re caught in a storm and realize their kite is not some magic genie that can make itself disappear!
There are several ways to check the weather. Here are a few ways you can use to get the most reliable forecast near you:
1) Weather Underground App (or Website)
2) Kiteboarding Forecast App
3) The Old Fashioned Way – Phone Call
Weather Underground App (or Website)
The Weather Underground App is an extremely useful tool! It is important to note that this app is more accurate than other apps like The Weather Channel because it is crowdsourced by people in your area. This means that if there is a thunderstorm coming in, someone will be reporting it on their app. So stay safe, and download it here.
Kiteboarding Forecast App
The Kiteboarding Forecast App is useful for seeing what the wind will be like for your next session at the beach. You can use this app to see average wind speed and direction.
As a pilot, you have to always consider the weather – especially when flying in winds. This is not only important for your safety, but also for others on the ground.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to fly in strong winds? We don’t recommend it – but we want to give you some insight into what strong winds are and how they might affect your flight experience if you ever encounter them.
What are strong winds?
Strong wind refers to any wind speed over 40 knots (46 miles per hour). Wind speeds can be even stronger than this, at 50 knots, 55 knots, etc.
You’ve been looking forward to your trip for weeks. You plan everything out: what you want to do, where you want to go, and even the weather that you want to experience. Now the time has come; you wake up early and head outside before sunrise, excited and ready for a fun day of fluttering. But then, when you step out of your house and into the cool morning air, you’re hit with a blast of wind that makes it hard for you to stay on your feet. You look up at the sky and see clouds forming, telling you that something bad is about to happen. What do you do?
This is not the way that anyone wants to start their day – or their vacation for that matter! However, this exact scenario is one that plays out every year in Breezy Hills. This city is located next to a mountain range, which means that strong winds are a constant problem throughout the year. In fact, it’s these strong winds that have made our city famous: people come from all over the world just so they can fly through Breezy Hills’ windy streets!
But even though these visitors are prepared to experience some strong winds during their trip, they still may not know exactly how dangerous these gusts can be if
