June 8/08      PPG course June 7, 2008 - day 1

 

Ground school at Peaks. From left to right: Wayne, Shane and Sam.

 

 

 

June 5/08      I do exist.

I have been very busy with work last couple of weeks and had no time for web site updates. I have bunch of pictures and stories from several flying and training sessions including some scary ones but I have no time to get it organized and upload to the server. Sorry.

Also please note that I will be out of Canada from July 5 to July 31. I plan to visit my family back in Czech Republic and stop by and say hi to Sky Paragliders and to Walkerjet. If you need any parts such as spare prop etc. let me know now as I may not be able to react quickly to your orders while I am away.

May 23/08      No training on Sunday.

We are hosting climbing competition this Sunday at Peaks. There will not be any training or demo at the flying field.

May 22/08      Doron's dad takes first intro lesson on Xcitor - write up by Doron

14 April 2008. Dad started the paratriking course on a windy afternoon. Andre, the instructor, started by giving him detailed and well-animated instructions on how to perform a nasty crash. With both of them well frightened, they went for a short spin on my XCitor. Andre gave dad a chance to control the plane for a bit and was impressed with his skill. Unfortunately, it was too windy to continue the course, so they landed, somewhat shaken, and took a break.

I flew it myself a couple of times, struggling with drifts and gusts. We waited a bit more, but the wind remained high and unstable. We decided to call it a day and drove back home, stopping to enjoy a great meal at sunset on the lake shore.

May 15/08      How to easily assemble WJ cage

 

All these years I have been telling people to assemble WJ cage like so: 

 

Align and connect points 3, 4, 6 and 7. Then align and connect points 5, 1, 10, 2 which is very very tricky to do. Then connect points 8 and 9.

 

 

Better way is to align and connect points 1 and 10. Then align and connect point 2 and then 3 and 4 on one side. Then align and connect point 5 and then 6 and 7 on the other side. Then connect points 8 and 9. It is far easier way to put together WJ cage like this and it show that one will never stop learning something new.

 

May 14/08      Mark takes Evan on Cross country flight and Jason on flight three.

 

 

May 14/08      This is what first flight will do to you...

 

 

May 13/08      Evan and Ron both bought paragliders. 

 

  

 

They are also proudly showing their biceps bruises in the second pic. If you do not get those after couple days of ground handling you doing something wrong...

 

May 12/08      I am off May 17, 18 and 19. 

 

No flying or training on those days. Sorry.

 

May 12/08      Evan on XC flight with Mark.

 

 

May 12/08      Jason puts in 2 more flights and Even goes on XC with Mark. 

Saturday's weather was good for flying so Andre asked if I would be willing to test a couple more engines.. SURE! The first engine seemed a little underpowered and there was no way I was getting airborne. I just ended up doing a repeat performance of last Tuesday, running my guts out, but never getting off the ground...

   Evan on XC flight  >>>>> 

May 11/08      June course is full. 

 

Since it is quite busy and scheduled courses are quickly filling up I would be able to run semiprivate course for 2 or more people based on your and mine (and perhaps Mark's) availability. If you wanted to be in June course but were not fast enough to book email me with a Sat and Sunday that would work for you and perhaps we can set something up. Weekdays typically work better for me then weekends.

 

May 11/08      Jason managed flights last night. 

 

Short note that he wrote to me today.

Andre,

    Just wanted to thank you for guiding me through my "first" flight.
It was scary as hell at first but looking back I think it has to be one
of the most incredible experiences of my life. It is honestly something
I have aspired to do my entire life. I'm glad you were there to get me
to this point. It must be very gratifying to see students fly for the
first time and I could see that on your face when I landed. You were
every bit as excited and pumped as I was.

    My second flight was just as awesome and I can see that this is a
sport that is only going to get more and more exciting as time goes on.
My adrenalin rush lasted all night and into the morning. I still seem to
be on a high from it!

Thanks Mate.

Jason.

 

May 10/08      Ron - flight 2 and Evan flight 8.

 

 

May 10/08      3 out of 4 in the air
