    PMC 2018 Flyin

    Hey up Andy. I've got your wind sock. We thought it was Mark Morgan's as it was behind his van and he was first to leave so I packed it up with intentions of giving him it back at parafest. Are you at parafest or is it best to post out. Please see the messenger below that I sent last night.
  2. Hi Paul or Alan,

    John Welsby here AKA Hypnojohn. I live in the Huddersfield area and would like to train preferably around Huddersfield. Will be at the bore chaser gathering this weekend, will try and meet up with you's if that's ok. Cheers,

    John

    it slightly turns left

    So first thing is first. When your flying. There is no wind. You are part of it. Think of your self as a little bubble floating around. Yes your ground speed changes. But you are now the wind so to answer your earlier question. Wind has no influence. Every machine has torque stear. Don't let any one kid you on that. Direct drive stears you right. Direct clutch stears you left. Belt drive clutch stears you right. If you fly a dudek Wing they come with a torque line. This you set with a knot... several in fact depending on the power you have applied. If you don't have a torque line the only other way is to set your trim slightly faster on the on torque side. However... Unless you stay even on the power the hole flight it's pointless. You'll spend all your time playing with trims instead of enjoying the view. Hope that helps.

  5. Mr Andrew Maskil had an eventful evening on Wednesday.  It was his first take off at our advanced Huddersfield site. He took off with grace and we even had a visit from a hot air balloon. Another first for Andrew. To top off "firsts" Andrew had a an engine out at 550ft. Giving him time to find an emergency landing site. He did really well to stay calm. Find a field next to a road without any power lines and landed on his feet into wind. He then had a little wait while making new friends with the land owners. Very well done Andrew.

  8. A very gloomy flight across Halifax tonight. It's brilliant being able to watch the rain fall from air. 

    A little tip for all you new guys. Remember on these gloomy rainy days. Always fly into wind so you can see the rain coming for you. That way you can make a quick turn and dash back to your take of field. Out running the rain and staying dry. 

    For all your training and equipment. East to West. Simply the best in Yorkshire.
