March 26/04       Sunglasses for flying with radio helmet.

As you know, I am always building better mouse trap. Every time I would fly on sunny day my sunglasses would dig into my temples during flight as the radio helmet ear muffs press against the  arms of the glasses. After while it gets very uncomfortable. As usually I thought there must be a better way. This is what I came up with. Take sunglasses and unscrew the little screw that holds the arms hinged together. Drill holes to fit rubber elastic, thread, knot, secure knots with superglue and you are done. The picture says it all...  

  Good luck making your super duper comfortable glasses.    Andre

March 22/04        Proper license, aircraft registration and liability insurance required.

From now on all pilots that are not PPO students in training who would like to fly from our location/s must be properly registered. Please email, fax or snail mail copy of your ultralight pilot license, aircraft registration and proof of liability insurance. If you are not registered you will not be allowed to fly from our sites. 

Those of you who recently purchased equipment and plan to use it for training, please go ahead and register your aircraft with Transport Canada. The Canadian Aviation Rules (CAR) state that "No ultralight aircraft should be flown in Canada unless it is registered" Here is how to do it.

Thanks Andre.

March 22/04      Very cool gallery of pictures here.

All paramotor manufacturers in Czech Republic must submit their products to extensive testing and certification by LAA the Czech Amateur Association of Pilots.
