I very rarely do any 'normal' tandems but today had an incredible 1 hour flight with this lady and her Teddy bear! Up on cloudbase (~2800) over the Alpspitz peak! What a view!
I am totally in love with my Ozone Paragliders Mag2Lite tandem! great handling and best ever solo-wing-feeling I experienced so far!
A climbing stop on the way back home from a short visit at Lake Garda!
The route was up on Piz Ciavazes, 'Piccola Micheluzzi' (5-), a 9-pitch 290 meter climb with an intimidating descend back down traversing along the tight goat trail in the middle of the cliff face :)
Great that I just bought stoppers and friends in Arco...I really needed them to secure my butt leading this line! I am definitely afraid of this type of adrenaline - barely having bolts in the wall through most pitches...
Another successful demo at the RedBull Air Race in Putrajaya, Malaysia! I was performing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in perfect low-wind conditions entertaining the crowd in between the race runs.
First visit to the country, unfortunately very short this time...very friendly people indeed! More pictures are coming up in the next issue of the paramotor magazine!
My first XC comp after a long while was the Bavarian Championships. I was flying an Enzo1 due to the current theatre around the Enzo2. There were 2 successful tasks despite the marginal weather forecast. On the first one I missed goal due to a fatal mistake at the last turnpoint, but managed goal in task 2. There is loads to learn! Waiting for my Enzo2 now :)
After a few days at Lake Garda, today had the chance to fly my first XC from the Wank on an ENZO 1! What was expected to be a top-to-bottom glide turned out pretty awesome despite covering cirrus clouds! A perfect round trip with toplanding back up
On Thursday the Bavarian Open begins and I am at the start so fingers crossed for nice weather! Hope to see you there!
Pre-flight checking my Blackhawk paramotor before the demo flight on Saturday. The main event day is today and the wind seems to be perfect so far for dynamic low level maneuering! Smoke on at 16:23 at the RedBull Air Race!
