First solo


Recommended Posts

Hi

I had my first solo flight 20 Jan. Still have the grin on my face.

What a rush...thrill...buzz.

I've been chatting to friends about it and seeing them visualise the event

in there own minds and grinning.

The point I'm trying to make is that after a couple of days I realised that

something happened during that first flight.

"Total event involvement"

For the ten minutes of flight all work, stress, aches and pains were gone because

the act of flight under that wing was all involving.

We carry all this mental baggage around without even realising it but after that flight I

was "cleansed"

I used to experience this with diving underwater and post dive you just feel good.

This paramotoring has bought that sense back and I can't wait for that next buzz.

Bring on the summer

Richard

:D

Fantastic, it's just great isn't it. Someone said to me tonight, when I was telling him about flying " Yes, but what is going to keep you interested in it , when you've master it?"

I then showed him one of my videos of a flight over a frosty Wiltshire. And he was just gob smacked, even a pretty average video was enough to convince.

Then, of course, we've still got to master it anyway!

Well said Richard, and also congrats on your first flight.

Many times I have tried to describe to friends what it is like to fly, but they just can't appreciate what I am saying. It's one of those things that you have to try for yourself to really understand what it's all about.

Cheers.

Rob.

Well done!

Glad you were able to get off the ground without braking a prop!!!!!

Awesome feeling isn't it.Can you remember it ?I had such a flood of emotions and adrenalin that I was unable to really remember much of what happened on my first flight.

Congratulations and see you at the airfield soon.

I was always taught about flying, if you think you've learnt all there is to learn, it's time to give up flying because that's when it'll turn round and bite you in the arse!

Congrats on your first flight Rich, can't wait to start flying!
