Student day…., We went early to Villa Pesquera ISABELA taking advantage of excellent weather conditions.

The pilots Luis Ruiz, Danis Rodríguez, Noel Vale and Omar Colon arrived there along with the students Eric Harthman and Mr. Rubén Torres beginning the course. A little later in the day came Alberto Sabah, and Jessica Cruz, Luis’s wife, along with their son Noah Enrique.

With the excellent weather, Luis was flying Apco’s new cross racing glider for the first time, the “F1” of which he was very impressed by its agility and speed. Definitely not for novice pilots, but skilled and experienced pilots should be in awe of so much power, as the word suggests, like driving a Formula 1 car … more details to come …

While this was happening, the pilots Danis, Noel and Omar took the opportunity to go together to fly around. This flight was a particular one for Danis, since he flew with Luis’ Apco Lift EZ R paraglider which is 25 meters, very different from the 29 meters that he flies regularly. You can imagine his “competitive” thoughts. Omar, for his part, is in the process of continuing to improve as a pilot. Excellent take-off and landing again. As Alex Diaz commented the other day, the Paramotor arrived without sand and left without sand …, everything was perfect 🙂.

Danis Reaction after fly a Apco Lift EZ R 25 meters instead of his 29 meters…

Omar Colon in the process of landing. No sand at all in the Paramotor!!!

Then we come to the students. Rubén, who is a professional Aviation Instructor began officially his training in Paragliding/Paramotor. He was directly assisted by Luis. He is already in the process of controlling the paraglider both head-on and across, after taking a theoretical course. We will continue to monitor his progress in the coming weeks. In Eric’s case, he came up with the idea of ​​making his first “solo” flight in the Paramotor. He even mount his Paramotor Scout with that idea. But at the end, we decided to wait a little longer, since there are still things to improve in controlling the paraglider on the ground. We don’t want to rush the process …

Shortly after noon, storm clouds approached the area, ending the activity. We left very happy feeling that we took advantage of the day. As always we thank God for these moments that allows us to live 🙏…
