Helen, who is also known as Granny and is a regular at the Freedom Flight Park, went for her first paragliding flight with Claudio. Granny's had 4 hang gliding tandems this summer but they were all short flights. This time she had an hour in the air, flew up near cloudbase, took the controls for a bit and even did some acro! They started with some small wingovers and a spiral but after that she was good to go with a deeper spiral. You can see the video here.
Way to go Granny!
While vacationing for their first time in the Okanagan, Anna and Farzad decided to stop by the Freedom Flight Park to have their first tastes of free flying. Being avid kite surfers they had good knowledge of meteorology and thermal activity. Farzad performed a textbook takeoff as a paragliding passenger, running into the air like Wile E. Coyote! Anna flew with Terry on a hang glider in the clear blue skies with a perfect landing on the airstrip. Smiles were in abundance both in the air and afterwards on the ground!
