Kurt Kleiner
Brief Description:

We will take an in-depth look at the conditions necessary for wave to form, the different types of mountain wave, and where to find indicators of mountain wave in common weather reports and forecasts.  We will discuss how GA pilots can recognize and avoid specific hazards found in certain parts of the wave structure, and where we can find the smooth air and beneficial lift. The presenter is a CFI who holds Commercial certificates for ASEL, ASES, AMEL, and Gliders, and he is eager to share his insight, experience, and lessons learned from some interesting flights in mountain wave.
