June 26/06    Canadian Aviation Expo - 2006

 

Another year and another air show done. I have arrived to Oshawa on Thursday afternoon. It took a while for the organizers to figure out which spot to put me in. It was worth the 40 min of waiting as I got to be on the grass with all the big planes and not by food stand like last year.

 

    Read more here.

 

June 20/06      We fly a lot.

 

Again picked Mark at 4:15. Off to the Staff's runway. 

 

 

Winds under the escarpment are hauling but here it is definitely flyable. Since it was overcast till 11 am, the thermals are still working. There is 1/2 cumulus in the sky. We take off and spend 50 min playing in thermals. At one point I fly down wind for about 3 min not making single turn ascending at 270 ft per minute. Just great conditions...  Read more here.

June 19/06      Serge flies! 

 

Serge starting training with us in April 2004. He purchased used set of gear. Basic paramotor and old DHV 2 wing that was difficult to inflate. He worked hard but the glider was too difficult to work with. Serge dropped out of the course and tried on his own. One busted prop later he hooked up with another instructor. Another broken prop later I have received a call. Serge would like to come back and fly. This time Serge purchased new glider and after couple of hours Serge flew for the first time. This was in fall 2005. This Friday Serge came back hoping to fly more. We quickly completed 4 flights. Well done Serge.

 June 19/06      I finally did it! 

 

This time it is not finishing degree in Economics at Brock university...

 

Check it out here but excuse the low quality. 

 

June 16/06      Superb flight yesterday.

 

I regularly hook up with Mark for flight after work which means I pick Mark up around 4 pm. We drive to one of our flight locations take off and enjoy air. Yesterday flights was great. First little bit of ridge soaring motor off then XC to Bieda's with use of occasional thermals. Landing at Bieda's hoping someone would turn up with cold beer. No one did ;-( so take off again and back to our air strip at Staff's place. Rest, and another short flight but wind actually picked up so we decided to pack and go for beer instead.

PS: Great flight and if you ever wonder if it is possible to land in grape vineyard. It is! Just ask Mark I have miscalculated landing Andrews. ;-) Chi chi. Sorry Mark. I had to share it!

June 12/06      Flight and... beer!

 

Another great flight with Mark today. Winds were from NE around 20 km/h. Near by our place is part of the escarpment that we were trying to ridge soar. Unfortunately the condition for motor off soaring were not ideal so we had to use our engines on and off. The longest I stayed up with motor off was about 5 min. Our second flight was to the lake Ontario. Awesome!
