  1. I believe there are multiple answers to your question. If you are a newcomer to the tunnel then I would not recommend flying 30 minutes straight. You will likely get tired and not get the most bang for your buck. As others have recommended, it is best to see if you can find someone to split it with so you can break up the sessions in blocks. I have flown all different types of blocks from 1 minute 30 to 3 minutes and my preference is the 10 blocks of 1:30. In my experience, this duration was optimal for giving 100% while in the wind and enough recovery in between to repeat at 100% again. With that said, as you progress it is definitely possible to fly much longer straight. Different disciplines will make it harder. For example, flying belly for 30 minutes straight will be a breeze relative to flying head up when you get there. I have flown belly, head up, and head down for 30 minutes straight and my advice is to not do this unless your #1 priority is to build up a feel on the wind. I think at your level you will be better suited with good coaching and breaks between blocks.
