Friday Sean drove up from Illinois in his Cobra to work on finishing his PPG2 ground school tasks. Of course we had to take the Cobra out for a spin too, damn that thing is cool!
Then Andy and his brother Brad stopped by and made several flights. Lack of sunshine is what finally ended the day. Just 4 more flights remain for these two to earn their PPG2 rating. So close!
We had an excited visitor from the Middleton airport land his little yellow tail dragger on the runway while the brothers were training to check things out. Unfortunately his name escapes me at the moment. Anyway it was great meeting him and learning that he follows Madcity Paragliding’s activity on the blog.
The USPPA tandem administrator, Francesco, was also on site Friday evening. He and his wife Dawn were there to sign me off as a tandem instructor. I am now legally permitted to fly with a passenger on my paramotor trike!
Saturday Andriew returned to start training again. We had a few lessons last summer before life got in the way of his training. Welcome back Andriew!
Saturday night it was off to Sauk City to meet Arash and Hooman for tandem paramotor flights. Unfortunately it was too gusty to fly until just before sunset so we were only able to get Arash airborne that evening. He was super excited and thrilled when he landed.
Sunday morning was Hooman’s turn. Mariyan met the boys early in the morning. The weather was overcast but calm making for a nice smooth flight. Hooman even got to control the glider for a while. Again, another excellent time in the sky.
Sunday evening I met Greg st the airport. He brought along a couple of kiteboarding buddies to show them what PPG is all about. Victor and his brother Guillermo were pretty impressed with Greg’s newly acquired skills.
