Flight number 100 today.


Recommended Posts

I found my limit today. I had all my cold gear on and it adds considerable weight. I had set up the wing first, in no wind. When I came back with machine on my back, ready to go......one end of the wing had blown away. I knelt down to pull it straight and add some sand to hold it, then I found I couldn't stand up. I had to get a bloke to help me up!!!!

This was you`re 100th flight, Andy?

With all your time in Spain seemingly flying every day i had you down as passing the 100th flight mark a long time ago.

....and well done on getting back in the air after that major op.



Hi, I have only really had 18 months of flying time since training. I spent most of this year flat on my back and only done 3 flights since April. Hope to do loads of flying Jan/Feb...when back in Spain. :)

Just packed up my gear now, ready for the trip to Spain in Jan. My 100th flight was good, but too much of a struggle for me with all the winter gear on. I'm going to keep training now and hopefully stronger in Jan.

Congrats Andy! I just had my 100th flight a few weeks ago. I can't imagine how much more difficult it would be to launch with all that warm gear on. Living in south Florida I had to wear a jacket, sweatshirt and gloves one time in the "winter" and it was a PITA...
