When I visited Czech Republic I had the opportunity to take the
first glance on the new WJ motor that is produced by Walkerjet it
self. The emphasis was put on reliability, light weight, high
output. Here is the sneak peak.

Aug 17/05 Nice note from Scott.
Sure, You can post it if you'd like. I stand behind every word!
Feel free to have any prospective customers email me too. I
appreciate the time you took to make sure I had what I needed and I
especially appreciate the fact that you didn't snow me on what I
needed to make it all work. MANY THANKS!
Thanks for the reminder to do a hand test. I guess I'd better get
that done today...the weather is looking like it may be flyable in
the next day or two and I would hate to lose a second of it hanging
in a simulator....me and this pretty lady have a date with some
clouds! See you in the air!
Thanks for the nice note. Can I post it on my website?
Make sure you do hang test to practice in and out of the seat
before you leap in the air.

Hey Andre! Thanks for responding.
As a side note, I got my motor mounted on the new frame and
everything looks good. I kited the frame yesterday for the first
time (we've had bad weather for almost two weeks) and man was it
different! I kept wondering why the wing wasn't producing the normal
lift that I was used to feeling. It took a few moments to figure out
that the wing was lifting the weight of the motor. I could run twice
as far with my Simonini as I could with my old system!. If it flies
like it kites...I am in for a real treat!! Thanks again and take
PS. I am cheerleading for you to anyone who will listen and
telling them that you are the guy to buy stuff from. I hope you get
lots of business!
Aug 16/05 Safety notice to
all Simonini motor based paramotor pilots.
I have had customer whose muffler recently broke. The very end
piece of the muffler that looks like a coke can in shape (with a
small pipe coming off it for the exhaust to exit), broke off
completely mid flight from the muffler at the weld. This is a
serious safety issue as this piece has some weight to it and can
cause quite a bit of damage to the paramotor. I have now added
a strap to my muffler that will prevent this piece from going
through prop causing further damage if it breaks. This is a simple
hose clamp with safety wire or better yet nylon 1/4 inch rope
leading to the frame short enough not to allow the piece to reach
the prop in the event this occurs again. Plus remember you must
preflight and post flight your machine before and after each flight.
Aug 16/05 Back in the office.
Rested but jetlagged....
July 17/05 Out of office
I am on business trip from July 18 until Aug 15, 2005. I will not
be able to get any voice messages. You can get hold of me by email
but it may take several days before I get back to you.
July 15/05 New used
selling barely used WJ Airwolf -
this is 2005 model with 3 bladed carbon fiber prop.
only flew tree times. It looks brand new. This unit was
purchased by experienced 220 Lb PG pilot who decided to trade
it in for Walkerjet RR. I am asking 6500 Cad + taxes. This is s
a great deal - you save almost $1000 (including taxes) to buy pretty
much brand new machine. To convert $ CAD to other currencies click http://www.xe.com/ucc/full.shtml
If interested, please email me at email@example.com
or call me at 905 988 5013
It has been a while since
we (Mark and I) went for nice long flight. I picked Mark at St.
Catharines airport around 5:30 pm and off we went to Sodom Rd.
field. There were some nice large cumulus clouds so we were both
excited about thermal flight...
I will not be available for any flying until Sunday, July 9. I
you would like to go on with your training please call or email to
let me know. After the Globe and Mail article I am getting a lot of
inquiries for introductory tandem flights - it is very busy - so
if you do not call or email there may not be any time or
equipment available for you.
July 6/05 Write up in Globe and Mail
Good article, awesome exposure but why did they use picture of
non motorized paragliders which can not be used in Ontario due to
the lack of large hills or mountains when I sent them nice pics of
