Good flying at Bulwer April 2015

Its been a really good week.  Students Rudi and Corne logged 25 flights each in four days flying.  On Saturday Rudi Cronje got to 1900 meter above take off flying from Centocow and flew to Sani Pass. Yesterday Josh flew to Underberg, Himeville and back to the triangle dams.  Philip was 1km short of the Sani Pass Crossroads.

Bulwer easter 2015

We did fly this weekend but each day storms built up around midday and yesterday a front moved in at around 13h00.  On Saturday there was hardly any wind so we did some foefies from the saddle and later did a bit of soaring before the clouds overdeveloped.  Yesterday was a bit better with a few hours of soaring before we had to stop flying.

Paragliding courses

Wild Sky Paragliding offers an introductory (two day) paragliding course.  Starting on the training slope, there is an introductory lecture, demonstration by the instructor, then students pull up the glider with assistance from the intsructor and learn to steer the glider and stop.  Gradually working your way up the training slope,  you will eventually lift off the ground and experience the feeling of free flight.  The course includes at least one flight under guidance on radio.  Thats right, within two days you will already be flying!

This weekends weather

Student Roger logged 7 flights at Sun City on Thursday, and  6 flights on Friday at Bulwer.  On Saturday Aiden and Roger had one flight at Centocow and two flights at Bulwer before the rain came through at 14h00.  We then had 40mm of rain Saturday night and 30mm Sunday night.
