11 Feb 06 - Tracy's pics
This weekend my son had a High School hockey tournament, so there
was no flying for me. However a fellow PPG pilot had the opportunity to
get a few flights in and had sent me a few pics. Any local PPG pilot
that has interesting pics, I'll be happy to place them on my site for
other pilots to view. Thanks Tracy, looks like you had a great flight.
02 Feb 06 - Potential students checking out the new XC.
When you first look at a the size of a paramotor, you tend to
think that they are quite a bit heavier than they actually are.
Rejean and Tim were presently surprised how light the XC really was. Tim
had actually had come down for a Demo flight and after trying the XC on
his back and a few questions, we were off to the field. Roger was at the
field and had already completed his first flight. Tim had stayed at the
field for most of the day and had the opportunity to see a PPG flying
close up. Tim had said," it looks so much better live, than on
video". After Tim departed, Roger and I took advantage of the good
weather and completed a couple more flights to finish off the day. Great
Rejean, trying out the XC accompanied by his wife
Tim, looking forward to Spring training!!!

11 Jan 06 - This is how
it all began for me!!!!
time I had the opportunity to see a paraglider fly was when I was in
France in 1988. I was taking a French Paratrooper course as well as
120 mm Mortar conversion training. The mortar training was in the
Pyrenees mountains and it was during that time when I seen my first
Paraglider in the air. When I saw how they launched from the
hillside, I was very impressed. Myself and a couple of
paratroopers watched these guys fly for quite a while and I had
commented that,"I'm going to do that one day".
took seventeen years later to complete this dream of flight, but now
that I'm retired from the military I knew that I would have the time
to enjoy this sport.
When I decided to
conduct paraglider training, the closest school was in Nova
Scotia. The only problem that I had was with the area that I
lived, there was not ample areas for free flight launches. I
went on the internet and had done some research and that's when I
discovered Powered Paragliding. Well, that was the answer for me. I
can take off from level ground and soar to whatever altitude that I
wanted to fly.
of PPG flight was everything that I hoped for and more, it's the
kind of sport that the more you fly, the more you want to fly.
The," Dream of
flight" for most of us is just a fantasy, however because of
the low cost and safety of PPG flight and training ,your dreams can
come true. Try it, I guarantee you'll love it!!

First Winter Flight of 2006
today was excellent for winter PPG flights. It wasn't too cold to
where your flights are short or it wasn't too warm where the ground
was wet, it was steady around (-5 Deg C). I called Roger last
night and he was more then ready and willing to take one of his owed
days off work. I met Roger at the field around 10.00 am and we
wasted no time in setting up, the winds were light and variable and
changing direction regularly. In these conditions, patience and
timing is a virtue and you must wait for the wind direction to
coincide with your set up. Roger and I had flown most of the
day and completed several great flights. Looking forward to the next
Winter Flight. Life is always Good!!! after a long day of
06 - New Walkerjet Paramotors Tested in Desert conditions!!
