Super productive last few days. The weather has been cooperative allowing for lots of flying and training.
Thursday Robert and Preston made a bunch of flights at Syvrud field. We worked on several skills and landing accuracy. The boys did great!
Friday morning my son Kaden and I spent some time playing with the wings at the Elver Park sledding hill.
Friday afternoon Angelo and Chris met me at the hanger. We watched the scary movie and did a lot of wing handling drills. We only stopped because it was getting dark. Both got quite the workout.
Saturday morning Chris and Angelo we’re back for more. A little sore from the previous days activities we kited for just an hour before stopping to prepare for and take the PPG1 test. They both aced it, well done guys!
Then it was off to the sledding hill with Angelo. We were able to get several short flights in before the wind changed direction making it impossible to get airborne and ending his day.
Saturday evening a relatively large crowd gathered at the airport for fun and training. Madcity Paragliding graduate, Dave brought along several family members to give a demonstration to. They all enjoyed the show. In fact, Dave’s uncle will be starting training with my good friend Dan at Colorado Powered Paragliding when he returns to Colorado later this month.
Josh was there too flying the Top80 miniplane while I was with Kevin and Mike. The sky was abuzz with paramotoring pilots. Kevin made several well controlled flights in the trike and Mike did the same in his Moster 185 Miniplane. They both made it look really easy. Textbook launches and landings from both of them. Great job guys!
Oh, and I got to fly in Bob’s Navy Stearman biplane. Flying with a control stick is so much fun!!
