First flight at Bieda's - Oct
Bieda is fine gentleman a two
world record holder who I met at the
Sodom Road field and also through Joe Zawadski
- the Sodom Rd. field owner. Henry has offered
his property at Bieda's
Powersports for PPO use which is
extremely generous. I must say I am quite
lucky to know people like Joe or Henry who
offer their land for our flying or
training........ Read more here.
Video Ouch 2000.
Various incidents and accidents....
Most of the situations and gliders are
characteristic for the 1988 and 1989 years when I
started paragliding... Been there done that...

Flying with Shawn and Dennis - Oct
I strap in. Get ready, inflate
full power. I run like crazy and finally I am off.
But wait what is going on? I am coming down again!
OK, legs out and run Forest run....So now I
am literally racing down the field at about 40
km/h. I am not kidding! I am thinking "Andre you
have wind to your back! Abort! But it is soooo
close..... Read more here...
23/03 See how many internet visitors PPO
I have just switched
to new internet provider back in the old
country. If there is anyone looking for domain
this company will register your .com .org .net
domain and give you 300 MB of disk space. All
for $ 10.00 Cad a month. Great deal. If
interested email me and I will give you contact.
22/03 Possible new home for PPO
OK the new location at the north end of previous
field is not too bad but the surface of the
freshly cut area sucks. I have slaved my ass for
close to 3 hours with my home lawn mover on
Tuesday and cleaned up smaller area within the
large cut area so we have half decent place to
launch. It is still not as good as the previous
spot though :-(
I now have an access to a very nice property
about 25 min from St Catharines. The owner of Bieda
Powersports Henry Bieda is letting me use
his land. The grass is beautifully
cut, the field
is big and we are even able to use his trailer
sitting on the property. I have to come up
to take some digital pictures of his place from
the air first and then we can start coming up for
flying and training.
