Flying in thermal conditions is different than flying in butter smooth air. You will need to expand your skills and your margin of safety to thermal successfully.
Since thermaling pilots use the more active part of the day when thermals and wind are produced from the sun’s heating energy, they need to understand the dangers of flying in more dynamic conditions. A thorough understanding of weather allows a pilot to determine the amount of lift that will be present, whether it is appropriate for their skill level, and how that lift will be affected by wind and other factors.
Ground school and classroom sessions focused heavily on weather and conditions suitable for thermaling, in relation to your individual skill and comfort level.
Discussions about appropriate gear selection, including wing, motor, reserves, variometer, etc.
