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 to ourselves which they totally enjoyed for their 1st solo flights.   One after the other they both completed fifteen flights each and experience a taste of nice clean air 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.
