Paragliding fun

We had a beautiful day for paragliding at Bulwer today. Cloudbase was around 500 meters above takeoff with cumulus clouds and great climbs. There were quite a few vultures flying around with everyone. The couple that came for tandem paragliding flights had an absolute blast. fb5

Paragliding at Bulwer

This weekend was not a good paragliding weekend. Instead we went exploring to kettle spout falls on the North side of the mountain. How stunning! The flowers in the veld were absolutely amazing. Bulwer is not just a flying site. It has so much more to offer. From hiking, bird watching, mountain biking, paragliding or just enjoying the fresh air and mother nature it is a holiday maker's perfect getaway.

Paragliding last week

We had a challenging but fantastic week last week with ten students on the introductory paragliding course.  Their last paragliding day was on Friday 22 July and it turned out to be the best day of the week.  All had wonderful flights and they all did really well.  One of the students, Kgomotso, did well on the slopes but as soon as we went higher up she could not handle the height.  Hans took her for a paragliding tandem flight and she loved it.

Paragliding 16 to 19 June

We had great flying this last weekend.  Each day was different but some thermic flying as well as valley release (smooth afternoon ridge soaring) .   Two of our paragliding basic license course students completed their practical requirements, reaching 35 flights and many more hours than the minimum of 4 hours required for the license. moon1

Paragliding this weekend

We had some great paragliding this weekend.  Saturday and Sunday were both soarable with low cloud.  On Saturday cloud base was around 400m above take off.  On Sunday it was much lower sitting halfway up the peaks at 150m above take off.  Students Morgan Mark and Brandon, currently on paragliding courses with us, logged many flights.   fb6 fb8

Paramotoring this morning

The launches this morning at the top of the landing field were effortless.  A nice still morning at Bulwer.

Paragliding this weekend

It was light today with a thermals over the landing field. Hans made it to 360m above takeoff.  Not quite like last Sunday with epic convergence flying with 7m/s climbs and averaging 4.2m/s.
