Paragliding Training Abroad

The 2018 tour of Colombia has come to an end. This is was by far the most successful trip to date. We flew everyday and all pilots achieved personal bests. Dates for next year will be on the website in a few days. We already have dates for our trips to Greece and Slovenia for 2018 they are under the training abroad tab on the website. Why not join us on one of these.

I’ll be back to training EP/CP students and flying Tandems from Tuesday 13th February. See you all then. Lee

Colombia 2017

After a day relaxing and getting kit prepped yesterday, we took a trip up to the mountain this morning for a shakedown flight.

The plan was for some local thermalling, landing back of the accommodation after we were happy with the tracking system and general equipment set-up. After taking off into a good looking sky, we cruised around just to shake out the rust, base was at just over 8000ft which allowed us to fly out into the flatlands and explore the area with the vultures for a couple of hours before returning to land. I landed at base, then got Dave to land out so we could check the accuracy of the tracking system which worked perfectly.

Tomorrow’s plan Is an out and return to Buga, as a final shakeout before the clients arrive.

CP training and Tandems

We had another day of training CP students on the 7/7/16.  The forecast was for strong conditions all day so only the CP students were called in. As I was busy with students Dave came in and took Tim on the tandem for a nice 35 min flight.

We spent most of the day ground handling but our patients was rewarded with some nice evening flying before the rain came at 6pm.

Congratulations to Tom for completing his EP and huge congratulations to Chris for completing his CP. Well done.

Can this really be true????

Two days of EP and CP training in a row. Well done to David Molloy for completing your CP training today with some text book flights. Congratulations to Dave and Ben for completing your EP course in just two days, well done.

Looks like I’ll be out with day ones tomorrow morning if these thunderstorms pass through. Time for beer and bed, I’m shattered.
