Soaring, general aviation sport

Post by Miles »

So I'm signing up for a soaring and general aviation club in my area. Has anyone had any experience with this topic? What G-forces can I expect for a winch-launch in a sailplane, and how can I help build up my tolerance in flight? Can you pull more than 1 G in a barrel roll?

My dream plane happens to be the Citation XLS. It's around 6.5 million pounds.

Secondary to the Icon A5, at a much more tolerable price of around £50,000-£70,000.

Currently I have £30,000 on me, I need to start saving.
