5 June 2015 - Brothers First Paramotor Flight -  Moe and Pierre both have their pilots licenses and this morning they flew one of the smallest aircraft. These two motivated brothers totally enjoyed their powered paragliding expererices and couldn't wait to get back up in the air after they landed.  The winds were 15-20 kms and the boys did excellent in the Reverse Launch technique.

The Brothers, Moe and Pierre loved the PPG training and are looking forward to their next flights.  Day 1 Training Video

29 May 2015 - Go Fly a Kite -  Remember when you took your brother to, "Go Fly a Kite!".  Well, these two brothers do. Today we continued with glider training. The conditions were variable winds so the students had fun doing forward and reverse launching.  By the end of the day they were very proficient at both types of launches. The next step in training is the In-flight training. Getting close to their first flight!!
