12 July 2014 - Hubert
and Kyle Fly Solo - This morning we were up early and drove to
the coast for Hubert's and Kyle's Solo Flights. We had the whole coastal playground

from the Bay of Fundy.
11 July 2014 - Day Three
with Hubert and Kyle - Today was another full day of training
completed with Hubert and Kyle to get them ready for their 1st Solo Flight. We
started both students with Tandem Flights. Later on we continued Flight Simulator
training and more kiting practice. Both wrote their PStar Exam at the end of the day
of training and were issued a Studen Pilot Permit. Tomorrow morning the students will get
in their first solo flights.
10 July 2014 - Day Two
with Hubert and Kyle - Another full day training with Hubert and
Kyle. 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.
