At this time of the year, Puerto Rico has the best possible flight conditions. This year has not been the exception, we have had a lot of sun, soft and very laminar winds through our beach coasts. So the pilots who have wanted to fly have done it to exhaustion. Today we meet at Villa Pesquera de Isabela, as usual, Full House! …
Pilots and family Kamikazes Present:
• Pablo Cruz and his wife Millie
• Eduardo Pabon and his wife Esther
• Chey Sánchez and his wife Arlene
• Omar Román
• Michael Diaz
• International pilot Ryan Cook and his wife Miranda
• Luis Ruiz
And with us, several families that gathered to enjoy their experience in the paramotor flight accompanied by Luis Ruiz. We can mention Mariana Muñiz and her friend Reuben who traveled from San Juan. Karla Toledo, her mother Norma and friend Ariana, as well as Marcos Torres and his daughter Jossie who traveled from Sabana Grande. Although we had ideal flight conditions, the light winds forced Luis and the passengers to a great race to be able to launch.😞😞🙏🙏
Luis managed to make the flights of Mariana, Reuben, Ariana and Karla without major problems. All were light people and ran strong to earn their flying. Then it was the turn of Miranda, Ryan’s wife, who had never flown and finally had a great experience in the fly. She took spectaculars photos of the area, including an enormous Manta Ray floating in the area of Jobos Beach. In the case of Norma, it was complicated because she could not run much and after an missed attempt we ended scheduling the flight for a day with stronger winds conditions. After that, the turn was for Marcos. He managed to run great with Luis on the second attempt to go flying. The route was to the mountains to feel the thermal activities of the day. Later on the day we had to postpone Jossie’s fly due for necessary adjustments with the paramotor.
In the case of Ryan, he had previously coordinated his visit to fly with the Kamikazes Team. And today was the day, and what a good day it was enjoyed! After a chat with Luis Ruiz verifying that he had everything in control, as his PPG2 License and level kiting a paraglider. Ryan rented a SkyMax Moster paramotor together with the sport paraglider BGD Luna. With that combo, he was flying practically all day. Ryan later told us how different it is to fly in Sea level conditions with laminar winds, versus what he frequently flies in his home state of Colorado, USA. at above 10,000 feet above sea level and many times in turbulence conditions. And not to mention the change in temperature, here flying 75 – 80 degrees, while USA at the moment is covered with winter storms.
About our local pilots, Omar, Pablo, Michael, Chey and mostly Eduardo. They flew to exhaustion. Routes of flying such as Guajataca in Quebradillas and Villa Montaña in the vicinity of Aguadilla were the norm. With the executions of today, Michael has just raised his level to 4 stars, Congratulations!
We finish the activities at 5 PM and we will try to rest since tomorrow we have commitments in Hatillo and the conditions remains excellent for full day flying. The rest time for Luis was difficult because the exhaust of the Black Bull engine suffer some rivets loose, and we need to resolve prior to the activities of tomorrow. He heads to Chey’s home in Anasco who gently help Luis to resolve the situation for tomorrow. Thank Chey!
