Once again the Paramotor Club will be hosting another 'Bore Chasers' Fly-in at the Severn Bore. :-) 

PLEASE USE THE RSVP OPTION. 

If you have not been to this one before, I am sure that all who have will agree that it's not one to be missed! 

The location of the take off field is just perfect for following the tides that will be passing though over the weekend. 

We will have Nigel, (our normal PMC food) back again with Curries, Fajitas, and stuff. I am yet to have a bad thing said about his food. (other than it running out) we will of course have the normal bar facilities as well. 

LATEST UPDATE: We will be having a fireworks display on Saturday evening shortly after dark :-):-):-)

Camping for Tents, caravans and motorhomes is FREE. 

Limited family / holiday accommodation is available walking distance from the flying field. (ideal for those who would like a bit of luxury) Please contact Kathy Turner on 07970 771 039 for information, availability and pricing. (NOW FULLY BOOKED!) 

As always, FULL MEMBERS ENTRY IS FREE. 

All other pilots, £25 PLEASE GET YOUR TICKET FROM THE LINK BELOW

Guests non flying, £5 Please pay on arrival. 

The address is: 

Milton End Farm, Arlingham, Gloucestershire, GL2 7JH.

Any questions at all, please do call me on 07983 428 453

Have attended this event twice now and all booked up for this next one, the location is excellent and if you never experienced a bore tide it's something else, to see a river go from tide out sand exposed river bed to instant full tide is fantastic. If you never experienced a PMC Flyin your  missing out, always well attended with some super people great flying and always great food and drink.  Even if your new to this and just wanna come along to meet other flyers You will be made always will be made welcome.

For anyone using sat nav that has not been there before - why not? lat 51.796075, long -2.409045 or N51.796075, W2.409045. This will take you to the farm gates, enter and keep going straight for quite a while to the end of the road. It's always a blast!!

My wife and I went last year and really enjoyed it everyone was so friendly and all had a good time ,it was good to see the different machines close up, the pilots were friendly and keen to show their motors,food was great and we all watched the tidal bore in the evening, quite a spooky feeling as the tide was coming up the river,even the flocks of birds were disturbed and didn't know what to make of the onrush of water.

We are looking forward to going again on Saturday ,cant wait ,Tony.

    • Hi Can, I was actually able to take my wing with me without issues. Just put it in my suitcase and off I went.  I know what you mean with regards to taking a paramotor out. Everyone says it's a nightmare because of the fuel... I'm planning on doing the same as well "going Turkey" with my engine. Do they not cause any issues when arriving in Turkey or transiting through other countries? PS Are you going the event Bore Chasers? Would be good to chat face to face.  Selamlar Hasan
    • Hello, I tried that and it is almost impossible.    Airlines don't take it, because it is classed as  hazardous and petrol smell doesnt help.    If you try to send it via courier / logistics firm, I recommend you to get Ata karnet, you can find more information in below link; https://www.gov.uk/guidance/apply-for-an-ata-carnet It will need a customs entry in Turkey, and because it is used, personal and such, they can cause you a problem.    I am planning to drive to Turkey in July / August and take it with me, this is the only easy way for customs purposes.  Hope it helps    
    • 19kg is too heavy. Its very thirsty and very expensive. I own two Baileys V2 engines (18kg)... (The V5s is 16kg and about £3000)  I have also been working on a spanking new GY6 with a 63mm cylinder (180cc) that I "think" I could get down to 14kg if I lose the magneto, sprag clutch, starter and use an alloy muffler etc etc.... Time is the issue on that... I prefer flying to machining but that motor only cost me £175     Atom80 is 10kg 
    • Mark have you looked at Cobra 4T from Thailand originally who now no longer exist, but  i do know Blackhawk America now do them as banhsee 190's.
    • The weight issue is a bit of a conundrum.... If you fly long XC flights or camp out, the fuel burn / weight tends to even out a bit between the Bailey and typical two strokes. On the same wings I burn about half the fuel of an Atom80 and I am quite a bit heavier on mine.
