  4. @Weaves Wing and reserve are sold (just updated OP). Motor is still available. Are you training at Membury or already flying? Happy to pop up to Membury if that is helpful?

  6. It's a situation many of us have. Trying to find a field. At the end of the day farmers use fields to make money. Of the 4 local farmers around me, 3 have given a flat no. The 4th is far more reasonable and suggested a small field I could use. Problem is it's right next to a paddock that has horses in it. I suggested that together we saw how the horses reacted to the motor and some kiting. They were fine with the motor, the wing caused them to run around like headless chickens even when about 50m away. As a result it was a no go. A real shame. I did use a friends field a couple
  7. Simon, great idea. Can't imagine anything worse than knowing you can save a life and not knowing what to do! Dedicated day at Membury would be great, or there is a great village hall in Aldbourne (v.close to Membury) that would be ideal. Let me know if you need any help setting it up.
  8. My - still novoce pilot - approach is to try to control the take off as much as possible, Get lots of speed on the ground and only then apply a bit of brake - me telling the wing when to take off, not the other way round. Deffo only raise the legs when you are well off the ground.
  9. Very wary of dogtag - reading their Extreme Sports policy I noticed that whilst engaging in Paramotoring there is No personal accident or liability cover. So I pay the extra for an extreme sports policy and then am explicitly NOT covered for accident/liability when engaging in that sport. Whilst medical cover is included it still takes away significant policy benefits. See Page 6 of https://www.dogtag.co.uk/media/1683/covered-hazardous-sports-181217-v1.pdf for the relevant section. Calling JS now....
  10. JS look like they are about half the price. I'll give Chris a call. Thanks Lee.
  11. I'm planning a visit to see my brother in Spain later this spring. Whilst a valid EH1C card is useful, it seems to make sense to have accident insurance to cover extras like repatriation etc. I've found a company SportsCoverDirect that will cover but it costs £120 for a 10 day trip. For previous PMC holidays are there any other companies that people can suggest ? Cheers all......
  12. Love it. Great video - plus you made it look a load warmer than it probably was !
  13. Attn all NE Wiltshire/W Berkshire/S Oxfordshire pilots. Whilst we have the amazing Membury airfield as members of the PMC, the instructors can't be there every flyable hour - especially those long summer evenings. It's also always nice to have a variety of sites to fly from. I also really like the idea of getting to know a few local pilots better in a more social setting - aka a pub. I've been looking for a local field to fly from with limited success. So I've come up with a plan B. I want to rent a area of land from a local farmer that would be fenced off and the grass kept sho
  14. Really, really look forward to this. Electric paramotors solve just so many issues. Keep us posted ! Do you have any technical details in terms of batteries/thrust/motors/current etc ?
