Today was one of those special days. A lot of public, many pilots from the great family of Team Kamikazes, and add excellent weather, we have the complete formula for an Epic day !!!
A new pilot has born within the Team’s school, and we refer to Ray Malave. He made his first “solo” fly during the day. Congratulations !!!, but more of this story later….
First of all, we make a count of the pilots and family of the Team Kamikazes present at the activity …
Pablo Cruz and his wife Millie
Ricardo González and his wife Ermelinda
Edgardo Rivera and his wife Wilnelia
Mario Muñiz, his wife Ivonne and grandson Betuel
Luis Ruiz, his wife Jessica and children Ian Darrell and Noah Enrique
Hermes Ferrer, his wife Neisha and daughter Katelyn
Ray Malave and his girlfriend Marylin
Everyone of the pilots were looking to fly from very early in the morning. In this case Alberto, Sammy, Edgardo, Pablo, Ricardo and Sammy flew in the surroundings on several occasions. Sammy was testing a new Vittorazi Moster MY20 engine in his Paramotor.
About Ricardo, it is good to mention that he regularly performs one flight, and a maximum of two flights during activities of the day. Today, he broke his personal record, making three flights. His highest total for a day of flying!. With good takeoffs and landings, he earned his fourth star pilot level (you can see the rankings in the Kamikaze Pilots section). Congratulations 💪!!!
Then we come to the school students. In Mario’s case, he was practicing his skills all morning, using his new Flow Cosmos Power 24 paraglider. But, by the time it was his turn to fly in the afternoon, he was physically exhausted and when he spoke with Instructor Luis Ruiz , he decided not to try to fly.
So, it was Ray Malave’s turn. He had been training for some weeks and even took charge of the controls in a Instruction Fly. After mastering the basic skills, we would give him a try today in excellent weather… His attitude for the fly was excellent, so we decided to give Ray the green light to try it. Once he started practicing the Paragliding with the Paramotor on his back, he discovered that things changed a bit, so he stayed several more minutes practicing his new sensations.
Finally and with the direct assistance of Luis, Pablo, Hermes and the rest of the pilots present, Ray Take Off for the first time 💪. The flight lasted about 40 minutes before we told him to proceed to land. Everything went very well and Ray is the new pilot of Team Kamikazes. Congratulations 💪 💪 💪 !!!! (Check the Video of his land…)
