Friday, November 26, 2021 – Lajas, Edgardo Rivera flying a Paramotor Trike for First Time…

Back to the morning flight in the Lajas Valley. This time with Luis Ruiz, were Edgardo Rivera arriving from Aguas Buenas and Damian Sánchez, who had not shared with us for a while. The Quick Silver pilots, Arnaldo, William and Luis “Coquito” Negrón also arrived. For a Friday, and after Thanksgiving, we felt like we had a Full House of pilots in place 🙂.

Again, and as expected, the conditions were zero wind. We had to run a lot to be able to enjoy the flight and the beauties of the Lajas Valley. Luis Ruiz, using a Trike, Take Off without major problems, and Damian in his second attempt also managed to leave. However, Edgardo could not do it. The physical effort to get out is strong, and to this is added that the grass was wet, and Edgardo decided not to try again after 3 attempts …

While Arnaldo and William were flying in their Quicksilver, Luis Ruiz landed on his Trike and decided to start Edgardo’s training with the Trike. In fact, Luis had indicated that if everything went well with the paragliding “taxi” practices, he would give him the green light for Edgardo to fly. For this a noble Apco Thrust paraglider was being used.

After a couple of practices by Edgardo on the Trike around the track, we decide to add the paraglider and his “taxing” and control of the paraglider were excellent and Luis gave him Green Light to go for the fly.

He was on the air for some 20 minutes and then his landing was also flawless. Edgardo continues to progress in the different facets of the sport. Congratulations!!!! Here we present a Video of what happened in the morning along with some photos. Blessings 🙏!!!
