June 27/05  Oshawa air show report we are on a mission to bring aviation to the masses!

 

Hello to all our new students. It was nice to meet you all at the air show. We look forward to training you all very soon, whether trike or foot launched.

 

This was the first year that we attended the Oshawa air show and it was a great success. We will definitely be returning next year. Many forms of aviation were well represented at the show: helicopters, sailplanes, canards, ultra lights, gyrocopters, amphibious aircraft, jets, warplanes etc. We were, however, the most accessible to the general public, with a price tag considerably lower than all other forms of aviation, and the convenience to match it. It was surprising to learn that many pilots had never even heard of powered paragliding, let alone ever seen it. Hopefully the presence of Powered Paragliding Ontario at the show has done a lot to raise the profile of the sport and make more people aware of its existence as an affordable and convenient form of flight.

ALSO.....Existing pilots, students and anyone else interested, should sign up for the Fly In  taking place in September. It will be a great weekend of flying, fun and frivolity (check out last year's report or this year's tasks). We would love to see as many of you as possible.

 

Report by Mark. I will write one once I unpack and sort our the mess in my car. Pics here.

June 19/05       Tandems with Mark.

 

We had an event with our portable climbing wall on Saturday so no flying. Sunday forecast was quite strange but we decided to go to the field anyway. The wind was shifty coming from NE. Mark took off in RR and Brontes DHV 2 glider and soared the thermals for while. Then we took off using tandem trike bunch of times. Last time it was absolutely no wind + given the fact we were both tired from a party we went to on Sat we would have never ever find enough energy to tandem foot launch. With the tandem trike - piece of cake. Nice 40 min flight. Mark got it all on video so maybe we will see some short clip/s.

 

PS: Helena just as you called the wind was quite strong but it did come down later. Sorry we did not manage to get together for intro tandem flight.

 

PS PS: Chris I did not get your massage till I got back home. It looks like it will be super evening to fly tonight. Lets hook up.

June 13/05      Rescue parachute "lock".

I strongly recommend to fly with rescue parachute. Those who do not, are insane. We just had a pilot with 100 +  hours who decided to fly when cold front was approaching. Not very good decision! The air was absolutely smooth for the whole flight but just after the paramotor was turned off for glide to landing zone he was hit by major turbulence associated with this approaching cold front and suffered 50 % collapse. This was at altitude of 700 ft  so there was not much spare time....

June 11/05     This is scary.

 

News chopper crashes onto a Brooklyn rooftop after tail rotor failure! The crew walked away with only minor injuries! See the video here. May be if this guy was the pilot the helicopter would still be intact
