Dec 6/05       I am back - I will answer all emails and return telephone calls shortly.

Nov 19/05     I will be out of office from Nov 20 to Dec 5.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Nov 18/05       IMPORTANT NOTE TO STUDENTS.

I have received letter from General Aviation - Transport Canada stating that starting Dec 1, 2005 ULTRA exam will be modified. I assume that they will no longer use the same questions. I suggest to write and pass the exam by Dec 1, 2005. I think it may be more difficult to do so after Dec 1, 2005. 

Good luck.

Andre

Nov 5/05       Barney and Everett fly again - Nov 2/05

...after completing last 2 flights Barney finally got over the hump. This is when things start to happen naturally and taking off is not strenuous at all. On his third attempt Barney decided to reverse inflate his glider with engine running and sure enough, just as you think all is going great the glider overshoot and landed directly on Barney's running engine. I just yelled in the radio "kill the engine, kill the engine" but it was too late. Major parablending. I could hear the fabric being slapped by prop....

Nov 4/05      Used package deal for pilots up to 180 lb

Paramotor WJ Spider -  this is 2004 model with carbon fiber prop.  This paramotor was used for 1.5 season. It is in perfect working order. It will fly pilot up to 180 lb. I simply sell used equipment every couple of years so my students always train with new stuff.  This includes spare wooden prop. Pictures here

Oct 20/05     Bob flies until he turns into a chunk of ice...

John flew nice 30 min. Great take off. Not so good landing. How does one manage to wrap the canopy on the picket fence if the fence is only taking  0.0000000000000000000001 total space??? 

See Bob land here.

   John, after the glider was removed from the fence....
