Feb 23/04       Niagara Falls restricted flight area CYR 518 demystified.

We fly from field that is very close to Niagara Falls. Due to the restricted airspace around the Falls all aircraft must climb to 3500 ASL ft prior to entering the circuit. The circuit can be entered from SW (50) or NW (100) directions. The boundaries of this restricted space start at the Welland river on the south side and at the QEW highway at the west side soooo if you are flying in the area make sure that you have 3500 ft ASL before you cross these landmarks.

Feb 22/04       Walkerjet...hundreds of paramotors manufactured and sold world wide!

  

Feb 20/04       Pilot's report from Walkerjet public discussion group re 3 blade propeller.

Let me start out by saying I own two WalkerJet RR's but am not affiliated in any way shape or form with any PG or PPG commercial entity. I pay regular price for all my stuff just like everybody else. I'm happy with my gear and brand loyal but will gladly accept any free stuff anyone wants to send me. ;-) I had the good fortune of having unlimited use of any of the WalkerJet units that were at ParaToys and they had 13 motors there. I made back to back flights using their RR's with a B&H 51x20 wood prop, then the two blade composite prop, and finally several flights on the units with the new three blade prop. The thrust tests later bore out my observations. Read more here...

Feb 16/04        Ground school with Bob, Feisal and Jeff  - Feb 14/04  

First ground school of the year 2004 started at 8 am. I have decided to teach it upstairs as opposed in the lobby since upstairs is where I keep the tables, chairs, study materials and so on.
