After several windy days during the week, the winds finally dropped a little in intensity, this added to the arrival of Paramotor pilot Brandon Hetrick direct from Pennsylvania, USA, and the arrival of some paragliders from the “Flow” line, and we headed to Villa Pesquera Isabela for more adventures 💪…
Brandon came to Puerto Rico to hone his flying skills in high wind conditions. He is used mostly in Pennsylvania to fly in low wind conditions. And here he was with the members of Team Kamikazes, David Garber, his wife Amara, Luis Ruiz, Samuel Travis, Sammy Badillo, Danis Rodríguez, Hermes Ferrer his daughter Katelyn, and Alberto Sabah.
Flow Paragliders – New Brand in the Lineup of Team Kamikazes
The day was interesting, there was a lot of adventure in the environment and the weather was very good. Several paragliders from the new “Flow” line were released. Brandon was flying his sporty 18.5 meter Apco NRG XC glider. David Garber premiered a new 22 meter Flow RPM paraglider that he plans to use for Tandem flights in windy conditions and Samuel Travis, who was traveling from Humacao !, had come to release his new Flow RPM paraglider in size 17 meters !.
In the same way, Luis Ruiz, premiered his new Tandem flight paraglider, Flow Panorama of 32 meters, which comes to replace the Apco Thrust XL of 33 meters that for many years was serving him in strong wind conditions. Hermes was assisting him on the flights. Luis was very satisfied with the new performance of the new glider. A more detailed evaluation will be carried out soon.
On the other hand, Danis and Sammy were flying all the way to the Guajataca Tunnel in Quebradillas. In the case of Danis, taking advantage of the fact that he had a full tank of gasoline and excellent weather, he continued his flight all the way to Parque del Norte in Hatillo. On the way back he was able to appreciate some whales that played in the area 💪!!! Back and later, they flew over Alberto Sabah’s house, since he had not been able to fly due to pending work at his residence.
Samuel Travis commented, on his new Flow RPM 17 meters, that he had never flown a paraglider so fast. And that he was very happy with the performance of it. David took it to fly for a while and did some impressive Acro Turns with it. Both pilots pushing the glider to the limit on their first day of use.
Tomorrow we have to return, taking advantage of the good flight conditions, before a storm enters for the weekend.
