Oct 13/05     Artur does not fly by his balls anymore and Zbysek's second flight

We got together with Zbysek and Artur on Tuesday to fly more. Zbysek worked on forward inflations having paramotor on his back while I set up tree simulator to adjust Artur's harness,

   Before adjustment and after   

Oct 12/05     Summer is back (for a while) - PPG course Oct 1/05

.....Andre snapped a few as I was doing wing-overs and later we climbed several thousand feet with Andre above me before I pulled a steep spiral dive....

Oct 11/05     Nice note from Serge.

Mark and Andre, I am really thankful for your time and effort put in me and irritation I gave to you with my "special" requirements. However, I agree completely with what you told me and looking forward to get another lesson. I would like to assure you that all frustration I got for two years of unsuccessful attempts on my own were compensated with this flight. 

Thank you again. Best regards, Serge

Oct 11/05     Summer is back (for a while) - PPG course Oct 1/05

Saturday started early 7:30am. Ground school was booked for three students in the morning. Unfortunately, Joe's wife was sick so he was unable to come, so only one student was able to make it...

Oct 5/05     Another course?

I have someone who is interested to take a PPG course starting any weekend (we will start on Sat morning) except October 22. If I can find another person we will run it. Anyone interested to learn how to fly? Email or call.

Oct 5/05     I am off for Thanks Giving

I will not be available for any training this Friday - Monday. 

Oct 5/05     Cost per hour of Powered Paragliding Ontario time has increased.

Couple days back I sat down and calculated my hourly wage considering all the time that is required on my part to run the business. Office calls, cell phone calls, emails, driving to and from the field, all the technical support and repairs, web page updates, cost of gas, radio batteries, treats to both field owners  and the list just go on....

I have concluded that I can no longer run the business in professional manner charging $ 40 per hour. Any new students will pay $ 50 per hour for our time. Sorry about the inconvenience.

Oct 4/05     Radio helmet anyone?

Ladies and gentleman I have just purchased two PPG radio helmets the "Standard" and the "Deluxe model". With those I got new Cobra GMRS radios with 16 km range. The whole system was flight tested yesterday and it works great. The communication is super clear at any RPM, the PTT switch on left ear cup works great. Finally we have communication system that matches quality and design of Walkerjet paramotors and Sky Paragliders. I will be making another order on Friday morning so if you are interested to get one call or email. 

     

Any ladies out there looking for Xmas gift for your pilot? This would be a great one...hint hint
