High Hopes in the French Alps

The Anticipation of the Parabrother’s!

Brother’s Preparing.

Brothers, ready and waiting!

So now after all the Mont Blanc excitement has calmed down, here’s the update of what’s been happening with our L platers, a couple of brothers who are coming on great, considering the heat they are having to work in!

The morning conditions have been excellent for practice for them though, and the whole riser, glider set up etc. has become established. We will be moving on to CP tasks of Big Ears and Speed Bar with them tomorrow and that’s on their third flying day, so it can’t be bad.

Dennis did a tandem a couple of days ago, and thankfully they managed to get off the hill! You’ll see why in the photo… of how not to be a tandem passenger! I’ve been sweltering up on the launch area for quite some time, and an beginning to feel the big melt! But it’s cooler up there than down at landing!

We’re going to have a change from ‘beginner’ work next week as we’ve got one of our regulars returning to us so some flying is in the offing… hope the weather holds out.

Whilst on launch and heard a helicopter arriving at the back, and my first thoughts were ‘O! no!’ but then I noticed it wasn’t a pompiers rescue helicopter but some sort of social one…

It seems Marie Antoinette turned up! I tried to get a picture of her, but couldn’t quite get one… although I did get the helicopter, never a dull moment eh?!


Couldn’t resist this picture… Lovely! Olivier and young passenger!
