    Oh Yeah. I wasn't thinking of wake turbulence from other air craft as was talking of wind and thermals in fall flying.

When you are close to the ground you donít have altitude to correct. When I first got my license a friend and I went up in 172ís to experiment. Went to a safe altitude and flew formation and I had him climb and I flew into his wake. Gave me a healthy respect of wake turbulence that has helped keep me safe.
