The 2018 'World's end' Paramotor Club summer fly-in and Party :-) 

The Paramotor Club will be hosting our annual summer fly-in / party from the 13th of July until the 15th of July. At Worlds End, Close to Newbury, Berkshire. (postcode RG20 7JH) there will be signs from this postcode.

The site is AMAZING! you will not be disappointed with the perfect grass as far as the eye can see. 

As well as the normal music, fire, food, bar & posh toilets... +++ at this event we will have a comedian on the Friday evening to get you laughing until your face hurts! 

Once again we will be putting on a PMC fireworks display, and once again it will be unlike the dragged out displays your accustomed too :-):-) here is a drone video of the 2017 fireworks :-) for 2018 we have a plan which will up the game considerably!! :-):-) 

Visitors can also enjoy a 'Joy Ride' / (trial flight) in a C42 microlight for a very small donation.

Camping, caravans, motorhomes FREE.

Locally, there are some great XC flights to be had, and foot-drag heaven awaits!

    • Thanks for the info🙂. I read on FB today that there is a field near Salisbury (Barry's field I think), but as I'm still learning I'm content with travelling to Membury. 🙂
    • That could well of been me, or the other PPGer i know of who flies in this area who often fly over Totton on our way to the IOW, but not much flying happened last year... Finding flying sites in this area seems very difficult. I lost one field when the elderly farmer passed away and the farm was taken over by a new tenant. The other regular field i had used for several years had crops in it instead of the usual grass so that one was out of action for the whole year. I couldn`t find any other willing landowners so last year i only flew 5 times... The whole process of finding a site will begin again this year i suppose, but if nothing comes up.......i expect the appeal of PPG will fade away....  
    • You should take a look at your set up if you are turning without power. Are your offsets correctly set? Are you using torque correction on your wing? Is your harness causing you to be weight shifting slightly? Is anything bent? Was your wing trimmed properly? 
    • Hi all, Question re taking kit abroad and bringing it back. So I'm planning on going to Turkey babadag and planning on taking my wing with me. My question is, can I put the wing in my suitcase and take it with me and bring it back without any issues? When coming back to the UK will I have issues with customs? If they question me about my glider? It's an old glider so if I was questioned I couldn't prove taking it with me.... Or do I do a video before and after. Or am I being paranoid?
    • Flight 5 Happened today! Blew one launch, My instructor was watching this time and immediately indicated that I was pulling the A risers rather than just running with them up... collapsing the front of the wing before it could get up. That explains all the blown launches recently. 2nd time was better... reverse launch into about 6mph wind. Straight up. Struggled to get in the seat... so got some altitude then stowed the brakes and dragged the seat forward under me. Pootled around for a bit, enjoying the view.  Did some experimenting with varying levels of power (my setup seems to turn right all the time. Even with no throttle, there is a slight right turn that gets progressively worse with power.) Tried a few sharp turns, then eventually came back in for a landing. Not good. All was good until it came to the flair... left brake slipped out of my fingers... Ended in a rough bum slide after my legs acted like shock absorbers.  Not pretty at all, but thankfully, no damage that i noticed. Ill give it a proper check over during to week to make sure.
