timhorrox Posted November 30, 2007 Share Posted November 30, 2007 Very newbie, in fact. No kit, no training as yet. Had a punter dual flight in Turkey in the summer which was grand, aloft for about 35mins - not bad considering I am 100kg. Still, the pilot was a stick insect! Have training paid for with Axis in Abergavenny, just need to set dates for a long weeknd or similar. Lambourn is a quick whizz down the A34, so that might be a good option for those odd days. Simon, tell me more... Was at the show last weekend, and I think Giles talked me and my flying buddy into a Parajet. Think I'll get the flying bit sorted, or at least some basic wing handling, before I commit though. Have been in touch with Lawrence via this forum, who is also based in Aylesbury, so we may have the makings of a club up here...but it's early days. Very interested in the John O'Groats to Lands End trip...sounds like it should be filmed...I feel a documentary coming on. Has anybody thought of tying up with Balloon groups on the route - they will know all the good flying sites. I still know a few people from when I was involved in that in the years BC (Before Children)... Love to hear from anyone who is in the area...
