Hello....


Recommended Posts

Well I better say 'Hello'....

My name is Andrew and I live in Berkshire (the very last road!) on the border with Buckinghamshire. I plan to get flying ASAP and am looking at either a UK based course on an ad-hoc basis or ride my bike down to Spain. Any tips or ideas would be great! :D

Trying VERY hard to avoid buying kit first, but I keep finding things...... :oops:

I am quite lucky as I have a workshop on a farm with big fields so have a launch site sorted!

Hi Andrew,

I am based in Berkshire. ( Membury ) see http://www.paramotortraining.com

Call any time. :-)

SW :D

Your up early! :lol:

You were the top of my list, I thought there was a local place in Bourne end (only a couple of miles away) but that was a link from the Microlight Association and looks like it is (a) dead and (b) for Microlights....doh!

I'm self employed so my time is flexible and a quick blat down the M4 on my bike looks like mixing my love of my bike with getting some lessons in.......damn this rain or I'd be booking for today!

:explode:

Thanks for the PM Togsie, not sure if the PM system is working as my reply looks like it's stuck in the out-box (Being a new member?). Thought I had better thank you here or you'll think I'm an ignorant tit! :oops:

PMs stay in your out box until the person they are for logs on :D

Cunning! :shock:

I run a motorbike forum and tend to quarantine new members PM, another forum I use only lets you PM when you have posted 10 posts or more.

I think I'm going to be visiting Swindon a lot for a while!

Couple of questions.....the first you will probably all fall about laughing over...... :oops:

Is/can a normal Paraglider harness used or is it a dedicated Paramotor one?

Resisting the urge to buy something, but I have seen a Nova Pheron that looks like it is a forum members on 'that' auction site for a very reasonable price. If I'm looking for second hand kit, is that viable?

The original thread is http://www.paramotorclub.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4038&p=26483&hilit=Nova+PHeron#p26483

Also a video of this wing flying a couple of days ago....

I don't have the money to spend on new kit, so I'm looking at something I can use and upgrade later as the bug takes hold and food is second to getting new kit! :mrgreen:

Hi Andrew,

I would recommend that you look for a 'reflex' wing (aimed at paramotoring specifically) It is often better to buy from inside the club circles so you know you can trust the seller.

Don't be in a rush to buy anything just yet though, as we have a load of school kit here for you when you start.

Welcome!

SW :D

After our chat yesterday I spent most of today failing to pull my finger out, as I was constantly looking at the sky, I was VERY happy to see it start blowing and then some rain! :twisted:

I remember the same feeling from sailing, every time there was a nice Easterly, I'd be itching to get on the river :lol:

What's the prognosis for tomorrow as I'm going to Bristol Airport to pick up SWMBO and could drop in and have my wallet lightened if your there?
