This morning we continued with paramotor simulator launch technique training as well as some paraglider training.  In the afternoon the winds were too strong to continue kiting so we set up both paramotors weight and balance in the flight simulator trainer.   We covered a few In flight drills before calling it a day of training. Early tomorrow morning we're hoping for a Tandem flight for both students.
