Paragliding today

It was a nice morning at Bulwer students Kaisu and Robert got some flights and toplandings in.  Some experienced pilots flew for hours.  The wind picked up and we did quite a bit of parawaiting.  Kaisu and Robert got one more flight each and had to do quite a lot of bigears to come down as there  a big thundercloud was  building towards the North.

Paragliding this week

Yesterday our students had nice flights and top landings at Bulwer.  Flying ended early with thunderstorms building up.  Suddenly there was a lot of lift, which meant it was time to pull in big ears and go and land.  An epic storm came past a bit later with swirling cloud, strong wind, and a lot of lightning. Today there is 100% high cloud cover with very calm conditions and a light East wind. Wednesday and Thursday looks like it will be good at Bulwer, maybe some storms in the afternoon.

Paragliding Bulwer today

It was a perfect day for running around on the slopes learning to pull up a glider.  New students Robert and Kaiso from Norway and Finland logged two flights each.  The morning started off with light rain.  It cleared up quite early and we had a good training day.
