The plans, as we traditionally do on Sundays, was to get to Villa Pesquera Isabela. This time, even though we had some plans for the day, we couldn’t do much due to the strong winds.
From early on the winds were blowing at over 15 mph, and it got complicated when at 9 AM the intensity was already over 20 mph. (It ended up registering gusts of up to 29 mph at noon).
This did not prevent there from being some activity. Team Kamikazes pilots and family present…
Mario Muñiz and his wife Ivonne
Ricardo Gonzalez and his wife Ermelinda
Angelo Ávila and his girlfriend Genesis
Ray Malave and his girlfriend Marilyn
Luis Ruiz and his son Ian Darrell
Today we begin the official training of student Angelo Ávila, a native of Bayamon. We were taking advantage of giving the theoretical part of the course waiting for better conditions to be able to practice in the area. His girlfriend, Genesis, tried at one point to make a flight with David, but due to the strong wind, we gave up the idea, we will wait for better conditions.
For his part, Mario practiced a bit with the small BGD Seed paraglider, and he has perfected the control of the paraglider head-on and is about to fly with us again soon. Ray, for his part, arrived with his paramotor, a latest generation of Miniplane Top80. He was testing it and making adjustments since he could not test at home somewhat limited due to the noise it creates.
The only pilot that venture to so some flights was David Garber with his small and agile Paraglider Apco NRG PRO 16.5 meters. He inclusive do some acro move in that conditions. Amazing 😉!!!
Sammy and Ricardo were dedicated to helping Mario, and Ray with the Paramotor. Around noon, we decided to end the activity while waiting for better conditions.
