  1. Got a reasonable window in the crappy weather yesterday. I met Paul at Penkridge to see if it was going to be flyable with a forecast of 8/15. First thing we did is get stuck on the way into the field. Becoming a habit this is! We're able to roll back out of the gate so no worries. So, we jumped in my van and went to find the farmer, see if he's got a different field. We didn't find him but left a message with someone at his house to say we'd blocked the gate and were going flying, just in case anyone turns up. I'm guessing the microlight club never fly in winter if they can't get

  2. As you will I am sure soon notice, Sacha Dench is dusting off her kit and flying around the coast of the UK on an Electric Paramotor! The PMC are supporting this event in whatever way we can. ( I will be helping with some ground support on the Electric bike ) The link below has a cool little video explaining what's happening and why, on the page is also the chance to donate / get involved. It would be ace if we could collectively support this as I think that it will do masses of good for the sport in the UK sending out a super positive message to I suspect EVERYONE in the country

  3. Awesome guys!! I honestly think this is a worthy adventure and also something in the UK which involves a Paramotor and is super positive and most likely to be the single largest exposure of our sport / toys to the UK general public since the Bear Grylls Everest thing which was not a happy vibe expedition / edit. Keeping this positive and showing our support as a community is I think a humble offering in return for the all round good I think it will be doing Again, thanks guys.. SW

  7. The rules are !000 feet over a built up area, or a higher height if needed to glide to safety. Otherwise just 500 feet from people/buildings. And if no people/buildings within 500 feet, then height can be 1 foot! I think the flying manoeuvre you are describing is wing overs. These are the simplest of things and for an experienced pilot not dangerous at all. Spirals are basic spinning and also not dangerous - these are taught during basic training as a way of descending quickly. It is also very difficult for an observer on the ground to really know what height a pilot is. I have had

  10. You'd be hard pushed for spares and it's very old tech and relatively heavy by modern standards. Here's an article about how the DK Whisper evolved into the original Parajet paramotor.

  11. You don't need life insurance to get a mortgage (though obviously it may be sensible to do so depending on your circumstances) I'd probably keep the two things seperate. Different insurers will have different requirements as regards flying. I'd see what your insurance brokers says, and based on past experience I'd be inclined to use a specialist insurance broker for that rather than a mortgage broker. But that's just my opinion, having had pretty poor advice on more than on occasion.
