May 17/16 pm – PPG course day 3

Nice afternoon at the field. Started at 3 pm with bit more kiting. Wind was gusting a bit till about 4:30. At this point Ryan was ready for the motor as his kiting was very good. Kevin still makes small mistake here and there but that will go away soon. Ryan started to ground handle with his paramotor but seem to have real issue with the weight and awkwardness of the unit. He worked hard but could not nail it. There is much less feel when you have the motor on your back and it is easy to over-brake. Kevin improved to the point that he has started to ground handle with the motor as well. Finished at 8 pm as both students were exhausted.I was tired too. Three 14 hr days in the row are hard. No first solo tonight – lets hope it will happen tomorrow.
