June 11/13 – Holy crap!

And you thought PPG was on the edge eh?


June 10/13 – Let me know about video

Hi guys,

Can you please let me know how you see videos on my site? Someone just told me that on his computer all videos are sideways.

Please email me and say I see videos OK or say I see videos sideways or upside down.

Also let me know which system you are on – MAC or Windows or Linux. I work on MAC.

Thanks I appreciate this.


June 9/13 – PPG course day 2 pm – Hugues manages 9 flights and Herman 2

Got to the field at field 4 pm to meet Herman and Hugues. I was not sure how Hugues will do as in the morning he had a serious mental block but as it turn out in the afternoon with nice steady breeze he quickly took of and landed 9 times!  Great work Hugues.

Hugues ground inflating with motor on his back.

Herman is getting ready.

He has purchased very powerful unit with Moster engine – a bit of overkill for his size


After some prep – Herman too off. All was going well except he was reluctant to add power – I guess being a bit timid having such powerful unit. He copied the terrain at about 70 ft and then his engine coughed and quit. He made pretty good downwind landing. We were wondering what happened but after I have looked at his tank, it was quite clear to me that the must have sucked an air bubble into carb as the fuel was sloshing around on take off  Herman had only 2 ” of fuel at the bottom of the tank?! Not a good idea.

After this flight wind was dying off and Herman started to have hard time inflating his canopy. I have suggested to use one of my super light units along with the Cima K 2 to have another flight and build confidence. In no time Hermann was in the air again this time the engine didn’t quit and he had a very nice flight.

Very successful evening!

Ground handling at the field. We had ideal conditions for 2 hours than wind picked up and stayed strong. Starange! All 3 are ready to fly – just need proper gentle and smooth wind.


We then proceeded to work on motors. Got familiar with starting procedures, fuelling, pre flight check and so on. We also di the powered runs.

June 7/13 – Flying circus tonight!

Graham 4 flights, Greg 4 flights, Darren 8 flights. What a great evening. Overcast winds from 10 to 15 km/h NNE. Perfect conditions. Greg showed up first and just as he was about to take off Darren showed hop. I had the gear ready for them so they were in the air 5 min after arrival. Darren has got it. He does not need any assistance at all. Gred did not get very nauseated this time even though he stayed up for quite a while on couple of flights. Garaham also did well. $ flight added to his log book. All are fine tuning their techniques and that is gbest done with bunch of flights back to back.
