Today was an “epic” day of flights and adventures of the Team Kamikazes Paramotor Puerto Rico and that apart from having an excellent flight climate. We had the scheduled visit of the group of Adventurers 100×35 commanded by Roxana Delgado. Those who came to live their experience of flying in the paramotor, the closest thing to the flight of birds.
The meeting place was Villa Pesquera of Isabela. As we mentioned, we had excellent weather to fly all day. Roxana arrived with a group of fourteen (14) passengers from very early in the morning. Luis Ruiz had hired that day the experienced pilot and friend David de Jesus to help him flying some of the passengers. We had two (2) full equipment available to do the jobs. As a Plan B, the Trike “El Llanuro” is ready, although its wheels do not run well in the sand, but it could do the job. We also had the Kamikazes pilot, Michael Diaz and his father Papo, helping in everything that was necessary so that everything would run in harmony.
Also, we had Full House of members of Team Kamikazes, who came from all over the island to enjoy the great day. Here the list of presents:
Luis Ruiz his wife Jessica and children Ian Darrell and Noah Enrique
Michael Diaz and his father Papo
David De Jesús accompanied by his friend Edwin Méndez and his wife

We started the flights early in the morning. The intensity of the wind was very light so the first launches were difficult. The passenger need to be the most lighter and run a lot with the pilot to “earn” the fly. Gradually the intensity of winds increased and with that we accelerate a bit the process and all passengers were enjoying their flights. And thank God every one of them were very comfortable with his/her experiences.
There was always one or another unexpected situation, such as some failures in the paramotors. We managed to return quickly to the action without much delay and even use the Trike “El Llanuro” and made three flights with it. The wheels of it do not move well in the sand, so, we don’t use it with heavier passengers.
Enjoy a day in Puerto Rico

The last passengers took their flights at about 3 PM. It was remarkable that the group “Adventurers 100×35” is a very united group. They were supporting each other so that everyone could live their experiences. Her captain Roxana, preferred this time to hold her turn to fly in order to everyone could live their experiences. She had been flying previously in other activity.
There’s too much to tale, so, we leave here a lot of photos and videos, which best describe their experiences. A photo is worth a thousand words🙂.
In the meantime, the members of Team Kamikazes flew all day at will… Eduardo, Ian, Gregory, Omar, Pablo, Juan Carlos, Chey and Michael, came and went flying by routes that reached the Guajataca Tunnel in Quebradillas to the East, and to Villa Montaña and Shacks Beach to the West. The students Jason, Darrell and Pin Pin were kiting the paragliders in the process of joining the Team in the flights soon.
At about 5 PM we were finishing the flight activity. A huge clouds and rain approached us from the inside of the island. Several pilots were taking advantage of these wind currents to fly from the Cliff without an engine. This was the case of Ivan, who ended of the afternoon landing at Villa Pesquera to share a moment with us.
Here we leave a group of photos and videos that best describe the history of the day. We thank Roxana and her group for putting their trust in us. And most important to God, for giving us an excellent day for fly and share with our new friends🤗🤗.
