Hi Nancy / Carlo,
I flew my new wing for the first time this evening – light wind soaring on a local hill. I love it! Great performance despite it being so light – I managed to stay soaring for half an hour despite the light conditions. Turns on a sixpence & just great minimalist fun!
Evening Carlo, Nancy & flybubble team,
I just wanted to say a quick thank you for your advice and great customer service whilst buying my new wing.
I took it out for the first time today and flew at Newhaven I'm just leaving and have a silly grin plastered on my face.
Having finally decided to consider changing my reserve I looked at its specification and realised it was a size too small for my all up weight. I just had not checked it before and it was the same one I have had for the last 5 years.
So I spent part of this morning at Flybubble Paragliding with Carlo and Nancy and got some very good help and advice.
This [Flybubble newsletter] is excellent. I realise you all give so much, but both Greg's and Carlo's flights and screen shots look well worthy of an SHGC lecture.
As an alternative idea, have you considered a flying XC book? I'm certain your articles printed with some other info would make an ace book.
Just a thank you to the Flybubble Team. I had a chat with Carlo a few weeks ago about my flying and thermaling and he pointed out a few key things about my technique and attitude and that cracked something for me. I took it all on board and changed a couple of things and am now getting XCs done and feeling much, much happier about my flying.
Thanks for the newsletter. Great as always. I like the parting quote: "Wherever you are, have fun chasing your own bit of sky!
Hi Nancy and Carlo
Just had my first outing on my new harness and it is a delight!
No problem getting feet in and out and pretty much perfectly set up thank you.
Extremely comfortable, warm and lots of feedback from the wing. It is a very nice sensation flying without a seat board.
Thank you for your time yesterday, was great to get the harness sorted and be able to try it in the afternoon although very briefly but a couple of top landings and launches for practice getting in and out of it.
I was able to get into it first time every time so far and in flight felt instantly more comfortable.
Hi Nancy / Carlo
I would just like to say a big thank you for the amount of time and guidance that was given to me yesterday with the purchase of a new wing, harness and reserve etc. As usual top flybubble service (oh, and the coffee was good too).
Many thanks Andre :-))
Can I just say how much I appreciate this newsletter – always packed with interesting stuff.
