9 April 2014 -  Snowbirds Back Home!!!  -  We arrived back home early this morning and as informed by locals before arriving my flying field is full of ice and snow.  Hopefully we have brought the nice warm weather back up to Canada.   Jo and I had a wonderful time traveling to Las Vegas, Utah; Sedona, Arizona; Houston, Texas; Palm Bay, Sebring and Lakeland Florida.  We met so many wonderful people and friends who shared a lot of great aviation experiences which made it , "Just Plane Fun".

Now its time to unpack and get ready for another busy 2014 Training Season.  For potential students waiting for a Tandem Flight with my Paramotor or an Introduction Flight on the CH701 aircraft we will have to wait until the snow and ice melts.  Looking forward to seeing everyone flying again soon here in Atlantic Canada, eh!


30 March 2014 -  Sun N Fun Florida  -  Off to Lakeland, Florida this weekend to attend the Sun N Fun 2014 events from the 31 March to 7 April.  Unfortunately we will have limited internet access to update the news when we return back home.


22 - 24 March 2014 -  Palm Bay Fly-in  -  It was great to see Mark from New Brunswick also Dan and Mete from Ontario again flying south of the border.  Yup, Brithday Dan had a nice surprise and I'm sure they all hated to leave and wish they could stay longer. After flying an early flight in the morning Mark Dean flew my paramotor for a good flight. He had one of the Paramania pilot's take close up pics  while in flight and when he landed Mark had a smile from ear to ear!!

Rob had his PPG Virtual Machine on display . I tried it out and I was very surprised on how real the felling was to flying a PPG. Of course, we met all our PPG friends from all over the USA and had a great time. The Palm Bay Police organized an outstanding event again this year in memory to our good friend Scott Adair.  We met Scott's daughter Robin and spent some time with her talking about her Dad. Jo and I had a great time, and looking forward to next years event!!

22 - 23 February 2014 - Casa Grande Airport  -  We departed Katy, Texas and drove two days to fly with Wayne & Susan from Alberta and Bob & Jacquie from Burton, New Brunswick at the AK-Chin Airport in Casa Grande, Arizona.  The air was warm and flyable most of the day .  There were several types of aircraft  flying from the airport  such as PPC's Hang gliders and Ultralights. There was also an eleven year old flying his Dad's Parajet Trike. You have to Love the Arizona Air!! And the Sunset's are incredible.
