PPG Training (Sunday) - 23rd September 2007 - View the entire paragliding news archive
Powered Paragliding Training

With four new students and great conditions for training everyone progressed in leaps and bounds

On arrival we found the students parked well away from the end of the runway. The airfield was being used today, apparently, so we might have to train elsewhere. We jumped back in the car and drove the short distance up the road to the Russell hangars, where we met Ed Russell himself. He explained that there would be some activity today and that as long as we were prepared to move out of the way at short notice we would be able to continue using the field today. This was very generous of him. We thanked him and returned to the students to relay the news.

George plays with the throttle control of the trike in preparation for his first flight.



George still need some work on his forward inflation technique. This will be essential to master as he only intends to fly with a trike.



Andre runs through the basics with Rob as he prepares for an exercise in throttle control on the trike.



Sylviu gets to grip with the reverse inflation but...



... forgets to take a look behind him and stumbles and trips. (No I did not trip him for the photo!)



With only his pride injured Sylvia tries again as Rob clips back into his harness after his session on the trike.



Rob demonstrates perfect control without the weight of the engine.



Rob is training with his own equipment and therefore saving some money as he goes. Nice new wings are always a beautiful thing to see. I really like the translucent appearance of the S on sky paragliders



After mastering the control of the wing without a paramotor we give Rob an opportunity to get used to the extra weight.



Rob straps in ready to practice some inflations with the added weight of the Walkerjet on his back.



Sylviu tries out the paramotor for size. It is a heavy machine that generates a lot of thrust. Without the lift of the wing it is tricky to run with, but the added stability of the wing changes all that.



Sylviu takes a break. Foot launch training requires some degree of physical fitness.



Rob prepares for his first flight and lands it on his feet! (Rob landing video)
