Wing care from an expert.

FYI folks, just a handy snippet as the Autumn draws across the horizon and the cowpoo collects in the meadow.

Thanks to Elisabeth Guerin of Paramotor City. A useful website. http://www.paramotorcity.net/PPGglidershop.htm It also gives an idea of what is repairable.

Q/ When a wing gets dirty, and I mean like when you fly from a place where the soil is say a reddish clay and it sticks to your otherwise clean wing, is it ok/good idea to just hose it off with water?

Thanks Michael,

Washing your wing is not recommended, as it reduces coating efficiency. It is possible to wash spots with clear water and water with mild soap if needed, but never use any kind of solvant.

Make sure to have the glider completely dry before putting it back in its bag and dry it in the shade, away from UVs.

Hoping all is good for you in Mexico, at BahaPPG,

Elisabeth
