We have had some fantastic paragliding
this season with students logging a lot of flights and fun and as always high quality tandem paragliding
conditions have been very thermic and at times quite strong. Our paragliding
students do not fly in the very strong conditions but we rather wait for later in the day when conditions calm for lovely late afternoon thermalling and soaring.
Our last introductory paragliding
course was great fun. Day one: Wind was quite strong. We took the paragliding
students to a large field with small ground handling wings and had a good ground handling training session. We continued with this in the afternoon at our standard landing field.
Day 2: Low cloudbase. We took the students to a lower site below the clouds. There we managed some low level flights very successfully. We then moved to a higher takeoff site and the students had two top to bottom fligths with an instructor at take-off to assist with launch and an instructor in the landing field to guide students in for landing.
The weather forecast for this weekend 9 and 10 December looks really good.
We had a great example of pyro cumulus last week
We are looking forward to a busy fun happy paragliding
summer teaching new people to fly and sharing the wonderful experience with many tandem paragliding
flights in our breathtakingly beautiful Bulwer
We had a wonderful day of paragliding
. Some basic license students completed their course today and we took a few very happy tandem paragliding
passengers for some great flights.
conditions have been great for our flying site called Centocow lately. We've had lots of nice soaring in the afternoon.
The day started with a South west wind direction and not ideal conditions, but the afternoon more than made up for it, with an Easterly wind,lots of lift and great paragliding
We have a course from 11 to 17 March the forecast looks like we will have great flying.
courses and tandem flights are fun and amazing. Part of the important skills learned in paragliding
is the ground training. The better one can handle a paraglider on the ground, the better you will be able to handle her in the air.
