LOLI: Loss of lifting conditions en-route - Landing en-route due to loss of lifting conditions.

Usage Notes

  • Applicable only to aircraft that rely on static lift to maintain or increase flight altitude, namely sailplanes, gliders, hang gliders and paragliders, balloons and airships.
  • All static lift forms to be considered, including atmospheric lift, namely from Orographic, Thermal, Mountain Wave and Convergence Zone, and buoyancy lift namely from lighter than air gas or hot air.
  • Also include motorglider and paramotor aircraft if operating under static atmospheric lift conditions and the engine could not be started.
  • If the aircraft was flying intentionally at low height above the terrain, use LALT instead (typical cases occur with gliders in competition flying).
