We will be at the field today from 3 pm on.
is great, we can foot launch or trike.
We had amazing flight this morning.
I am available for training this weekend.
far Saturday afternoon looks like foot launch. Call or email if you
want to continue with your training.
April 29/06 Quick flight.
knew that it will be windier and windier so we got up early this
morning and went for flight from our field on the west side of St.
Catharines. It is only 5 min from my house. I flew for about 15 min
before Mark finally took off. Apparently there was no problem. Mark
just wanted to take it slow and double check everything. We flew
together for 20 min testing our communication set up. With the
"over the muffs" strap, Cobra 16 km radio and resistor plugs it
is finally 100%. Wind was coming from east and it was strong and
snappy. I have decided to fly back and Mark followed 10 min later.
My landing was bit tricky as the gusts were up to 30 km. Mark landed
shortly after once he pulled some serious spiral over the landing
always thought that no one would ever purchase anything without
emailing or calling me but then I realized that I do just that my
self. Therefore I must have been missing on all that instant 1
of you may wonder how I did as far as being nominee for the Niagara
entrepreneur of the year in the small innovative business category.

Well I did not win but I did get to the final three.
April 24/06 Check the TC
recently had a student that could not sign Transport Canada medical
form and declare that has never suffered from certain
medical conditions. Sooo, if you are planning to come down to learn
how to fly powered paragliders take a look at the form. If any of
the medical conditions apply to you, you will have to seek TC
approved doctor and get examined. If this is your case, you can find
TC Canada medical doctor here. http://www.tc.gc.ca/OntarioRegion/civilaviation/ga/Learning.htm
April 23/06 Training this
am putting this weekend Apr 29 and 30 aside for training. This of
course depends on weather. If you have time and want to proceed with
you flying call or email and reserve spot. Do it quick, spaces are
April 19/06 Our ground
school is getting sophisticated
April 19/06 Multistage cruise
control available for less $
just discovered how to add cruise control to Walkerjet throttle in
less time. Therefore the cost is only $ 60.00 I find this invaluable.
Any time you want to zip up, use camera, or just rest your hand you
simply set the cruise control to desired level, trim your glider and
relax. You can still turn by weight shift. I would not fly without
one. Eh Mark?
can stop by and I will add the cruise control to your machine $ 60
and while I am at it I can add the chest strap as well - that will
cost you $ 30.00
Those of you who would like to be more secure in
your seat or feel like sometimes the shoulder straps want to slip
off add chest strap to your harness. This is great for foot
launched take off
- you will never feel that the machine is sliding off you
shoulder/s... More importantly it is a awesome feature in flight. I
like to fly with my shoulders completely released which allows me to
move around and be super comfortable but without the chest strap I
would not feel secure enough.
can ship the throttle and harness to me if you wish. I will do the
above improvements and ship it back to you.
April 19/06 Was it planes that
brought down the WTC on 9/11?
The PPG helmets here
are awesome but they are chunk of change. I have designed and
I sell home version of simple PPG helmet. It works with the COBRA
3575 Radios. It is CE approved helmet. PTT switch and microphone is in easy to hold
and operate hand pod. Audio is in left ear cup. One size fits all.

Flight in Ellicottville - Story by Mark
After two windy days the weather finally calmed down
enough for a nice flight over gentle rolling hills. We were
fortunate to bump into the farmer Don and Lynn who allowed us to
launch from their field....
