Newbe Cirencester Schools, dollars and Dell


Recommended Posts

Afternoon.

So I don't know who it is, but most sunny weekends last year 2 of you flew over my house taunting me with your freedom of flight. With envy I would look skyward and this year i am determined to get my arse in the air. So a few questions if I may.

1 how much. Sure it's a common one but how much will all the training i need be. <1000 or > 1000?

2 What's he difference between a normal paraglider wind and a motor wing?

3 any recommendations for a local school/club?

I have already seen everyone say don't get kit till your flying seems sensible but how long do they last for assuming you don't throw it into the ground? Is it common to upgrade you 1st kit after a year?

Last one, What's the deal with that Dell bloke and flat top? Seems a bit unpopular and his voice sounds like a bag of cats drowning but that's only my opinion.

Many thanks

Al

Under £1000 :-)

in a nut shell, the good motor wings are safer and faster (this will be fully explained during your training :-) )

I highly recommend me :-):lol:http://www.paramotortraining.com or call 07983 428 453

Hi Al,

Just to answer the last one dell is an arse of the largest proportion.

Never mind his beliefs ( :shock: ) he does and has done some ridiculously stupid stunts in the name of PPG, garnering him various bans at sites he has flown at. He is seriously bad news for the PPG community and ignoring all he does and says will put you at no disadvantage at all.

I hope you get great training, simon is one of the best if not THE best, enjoy it!

Cheers, Alan

£20 is in the post Alan :-)

Ref new kit after year 1: No, many of the wings that were using now are great for most peoples entire flying life :-) It is good to think ahead when buying but unless you want to specialise in say Slalom, Long Distance, or Acro (which would not be in the first couple of years for sure) there are some awesome all rounders which are safe and still can be chucked about when it tickles your fancy :-)

SW :D
