#6 Alpine Adventures with Tom Wetzel

Today Clemens talks to Tom Wetzel. Tom's 14 hour adventure on the 10th of May was one of the biggest flights ever completed by a junior pilot. On that day, several other pilots completed very large flights, including 1649km by Mathias Schunk.

These flights were only possible because of superb wave and ridge conditions due to southern 'Föhn' winds.
