Question for PPG or trike pilots near by:
Guys, (and girls) I can buy chunk of
property near Niagara Falls. It is very
large farm field. Tons of room. No trees. Flat.
Groomed. Just perfect. If I was to purchase this
we would have a place to meet on regular basis,
build a cabin, camp and so on.... we can start a
club and this will be our permanent flight site.
We can fly:
Niagara Falls... 8 km
- to Lake
Erie... 7 km
Niagara Parkway to check out the
multimillion dollar estates ...6 km
Now the question is...would you be interested
to purchase seasonal pass for $ 200 that would
include unlimited access to the
site including camping or pay daily $ 10 for
flying + $5 if you decide camp. I am not
trying to squeeze out every buck I can. I would
simply need help with the property tax and
interest on the loan if I purchase this. Can
you let me know?

The lines are strong...
I am sure that the first time most
people see the lines on paraglider they think...
"Oh my god, these tiny ropes are so thin...there
is no way these can support my weight alone never
mind with the heavy paramotor on my back..."
Yesterday I have spent 30 min on the phone trying
to explain to Richard that there is no way these
lines will brake....So here you have it Rick,
single line is supporting all my weight at current
There is total of 26 lines so there is no way
lines will brake. See here.
Cleaning decompression hole on Simonini
After 70 - 120 of flight hours you
may notice compression increase on you Simonini
engine. It will manifest it self by starter motor
barely able to turn the prop over or general
difficulty to turn over the prop. If this is the
case, you will have to clean the decompression
hole. This is how to do it... Read more here.
