Hi everyone, I'm only thinking of getting into this sport at the moment so was wondering if anyone wants to fly in the mountains of Scotland or Wales. I have a large 4X4 with snow tyres and a trailer and would be prepared to drive anyone and their gear and act as ground support so I could get a taste of the sport.

I have over 500 skydives under my belt and was a free fall cameraman. My Hobbies at the moment are Jet Skiing and Video/photography, I'm an Aircraft Engineer in the real world and Live in Liverpool. Any takers/advice? :wingover:

Hi Looserivet.

I too live near Liverpool, have nr. 5000 skydives under my belt

and have done camera work but am currently doing tandems.

Been paramotoring for 3 years (still regard myself as inexperienced).

There is a group of us flying in this area so if you'd like to come along

one day let me know.

Think you'll love this sport if you give it a go.

Yes I would like to join any groups nearby to have a look at the sport. It's been 20yrs since I sky dived, I then took up scuba diving and jet skiing but at 48 am getting to old for torpedoing round the sea. I love the Idea of paragliding with the peace and quiet, but I like the idea and security of an engine to go up again at will. Does the engine noise intrude on the paragliding to much? Is paragliding to much humping up hills at 48? These are the questions only I can answer as they are subjective but I will only get the answers by seeing for myself. I also like to be part of a team as together we can go further and help each other and any adventure sport is safer when accompanied. One of my skills used to be building special snag free camera helmets for sky Diving as I am composite trained. I work a 4 on 4 off shift pattern with 4 weeks of nights then 4 weeks of days. So Monday the 15 will be my first night shift of my second week on nights, hope that makes sense? If I'm off when you next go then I'd love to tag along :D
