Paramotoring in August

We are now more than half the way through the 2019 European season and what a season it has been! Many congratulations to ex-student Alex Huxham who managed to win the Icarus X Trophy and came to share his experience with us at the beginning of the UK season. The weather in July was mostly kind to us in Wiltshire and we managed to do a lot of flying with several students attaining their APPI PPG Pilot license.

SkyWeek D-Day was a huge success with all 6 pilots managing to fly along the D-Day beaches. When not flying we managed a few rounds of golf at Omaha Beach Golf Course where hole 7 actually ended in a real WW2 bunker! We plan to make this a regular feature in the calendar every year.

Sadly upon return to the UK, the law of averages caught up with us and the weather in August has not been so kind. We, therefore, can’t wait to hit the road at the beginning of September for SkyWeek France before returning to Italy for 4 weeks of training and then Spain for a further 4 weeks. In the meantime, Alex's latest 'Advanced Ground Handling’ Top Tips episode should give you plenty to think about while you wait for the weather to improve!

SkyOps MD Ed Robinson and Team Pilot Jack Pimblett have been in and out of the Middle East a lot recently as we have been helping set up a new Tandem Paragliding centre in Saudi Arabia. SkyOps are also doing similar work in India and other countries this winter.
