Alex was back Tuesday after work. The breeze was perfect so we practiced wing control until sunset, how to clip in forward and reverse, controlling the surge in heavy winds, turning from forward to reverse and back...just getting comfortable with the wing. Alex even had a go with the dummy throttle. We talked about when to add gas and how much, all while controlling the wing overhead. After that, Alex and I did some motor training and watched “the Scary Movie”. Hopefully Friday he will be able to test his new skills at the sledding hill if the weather cooperates.
Conor spent all day Tuesday with me knocking out most of the PPG1 indoor tasks. We did lots of ground school stuff and motor training. We prepped for the PPG1 written test which he later aced. Conor also watched the Risk and Reward DVD. He too is bound for the sledding hill soon.
Brothers Brad and Andy were out Wednesday afternoon to do some kiting and make a couple flights. They both did great.
Mariyan has been working on building a new training winch and wanted to test it. We tried it with an empty line first then hooked up Mariyan to try the winch with a pilot attached. It’s coming together nicely but still needs a few modifications before it’s ready to use with students.
The school’s new paramotor arrived this week. It’s a MY20 Moster 185+ matte black Miniplane with the new two piece exhaust and Apco harness. So sweet!
I hope to see many of you Friday evening at the carburetor rebuild party. Soft landings!
