When the only thing between you and a deadly fall from the sky is a flimsy hang glider, you tend to invent some very creative language. Here's a sampling: ..L1.-
Turbulent air (n.), to be done in by same (v.). Usage: "I was trashed today."
Preferable flying conditions.
Flying so high the pilot could reach a ceiling of 18,000 feet, the highest permissible by the FAA in uncontrolled airspace. Also, "specking out" (so high you're a speck in the sky).
To drop the nose of the glider sharply when landing, causing a crash.
A "wingover" maneuver involving a sharp 90-degree turn. Looks very impressive.
Glider version of paratroopers' "Geronimo!" -- pilots yell this as they step off a precipice.
