May 11/17 – PPG course day 6 am

Morning off – wind from E and very strong.

 

May 10/17 – PPG course day 5 pm

Sat at the field for 4 hrs hoping for wind to die off but it did not. Time wasted for all.

I went for quick flight to test air and it was awful.

E and ENE are terrible wind directions.

Sheldon is still working on his kiting. It is getting better. We are now adding turns to forward.

Mr E managed 3 more flights this am with last landing right on the field road and canopy falling onto the prickly bushes. It was fun to get it out.

 

Did not manage to

More ground handling. Mr E is ready to solo. Sheldon still needs bit more work on the kite.

May 8/17 – PPG course day 3 pm

The wind did not die till last hour before sunset. We reverse handled. I di demo flights to demonstrate proper take off and landing in eluding big ears maneuver. Sheldon tried few forwards and Mr E kited with motor on his back.

May 8/17 – PPG course day 3 am

Started at 8 am with nice 15 km/h winds. Mr E locked the kiting in and I wall able to get him to work with hand throthle and I also gave him hand full of rope hand tows. If all is well, he will fly tonight.

Sheldon is right behind. he is trying to buy home in Niagara and he needs to cut some sessions short. He can now kite in reverse, still some minor mistakes but lot better then yesterday.

May 7/17 – PPG course day 2 am

Got together this am and went over the paramotor pre-start/pre-flight procedures. Covered how to prime the engine, how to safely start it. Learned how to untangle lines and hook up for forward and reverse. Both Mr E and Sheldon picked it up real quick.

 

May 6/17 – PPG course

Two students in this course.

Mr E does not want to be featured on my web so there will be only pics related to Sheldon.

Ground school done – finished at 4:30. Raining outside so no trip to the field.
