Had a very strong day at Gourdon, Bruce Goldsmith took two pictures of me flying.
Here we’re looking towards the observatory.
This is looking towards the village of Gourdon itself. The Gorge du Loup is in the distance.
Bruce is the main main at BGD (Bruce Goldsmith Design) and the range of paralgding products he works on can be seen here

Paragliding equipment has to be regularly checked, and my choice of workshop for this is The Loft, in Newhaven.
After a full trim check for my Gin Carrera Plus, and a repack for my reserve parachute, I’m looking forward to the season ahead.

I’ve chosen a DJI Mavic Air as my first serious drone. I unboxed it today after it arrived from Heliguy.
With some other stuff I ordered, I’m hoping that I’m close to being able to offer commercial photography by drone.
Just re-familiarising with the DJI Mavic Air, having not flown it for a month. A general image here across the Kent countryside towards the end of the day.

My syndicate partner and I are selling our X-Air Falcon.

A little trip up to Duxford with Brendan in his Emeraude (French for Emerald) and Matt following in his red Eurostar.
The Emeraude is a Group A aircraft, and the Eurostar is a microlight. If you’re interested in learning to fly microlights in Kent, then Matt is a very good starting point.

Went to the strip for the first time in a little while, to do some housekeeping (getting ready to fly after a period of hectic work) and was rewarded with some weak Winter sun, and some nice views…
A very good day at the BECTU offices, learning to use WordPress, the results you now see here…
The week before Christmas my PfCO arrived by e-mail. That was the Monday, and on Wednesday Gatwick shut after drones were seen flying within the perimeter…
Not really time to announce I’m a drone pilot…
