Last week we had our fair amount of rain and cold weather but this week is back to great training weather again.
Rob spent the day working mostly on his landings while his take offs got better and better. We managed about 15 take off and full stops landings and two and a half hours of airtime....just about half of the minimum Transport Canada's requirements in just one day, awesome!
We had an excellent training today starting pretty much at sunrise.
Jonathan has made an excellent progress since we started 2 weeks ago, now he is almost ready to go for a solo flight after 19 hours of airtime.
We had another excellent training day yesterday with Devan and Tom.
While Devan was practicing reverse inflations, asymmetrical collapses, big ears and touch & go landings, Tom was getting some thermalling practice with his paramotor....fun, eh?
In record time Jesse was able to fly through the course in only 6 days. Managed a day with 13 high flights starting at 10 am, having a lunch break for 3 hours and finishing at. 6 pm...it can't get any better...
Congratulations Leo for completing the PPG tranning with such a good level of skills. Looking forward to seeing you leaving the nest and starting to fly on your own.
Congratulations to Laura, Alex, Pier and Patrick for sucssefuly completing the Paragliding introductory course and also to Ray and Tom for getting started with the P2 rating.
Just 2 days after Jan had such a great flight Stu and Stefan came back for more air time. This time Stefan free flew one of his paramotor wings and manage to easily stay up and boat around. While Stu hooked a low safe after releasing from the tow line and went into a 24 kms XC flight getting a max height of 2,408 m and 1:14 of air time.
The XC season is in full swing now and this is just a sample of what could be done from Air Adventure.
Congratulations Stu for such a nice flight, hopefully more pilots will get encouraged by you to come and give it a go.
Congratulations to Jan for his first flight of the season and personal best after a one our flight just over 3,000 ASL
We had this week Stew coming from south Alberta to get his Tow pilot endorsement while Phil came to get his skills up after winter and to get use to his new Nova Ion 4
With the new initiative of HPAC to get all the pilots rated, we runned our first exam day for P2 pilots. Thanks to Stuart, Stew and Stefan for taking the time to come to Air Adventure to write the test.
Congratulations all of you for getting the P2 rating and looking forward to see you all soon when you are ready to get your P3 rating.
