The craziest day of my life
Posted on December 09, 2013 in Phil Jennings
So I have just returned from Peru where I was with fellow Parajet team pilot Glenn Tupper. Other than travelling around this fantastic country our mission was to fly one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu.
Winter Slalom Training
Posted on November 27, 2013 in Phil Jennings
Having not flown much for the last month due to catching up on all the unfinished jobs at home, it was great when some of the guys decided to organise a mid-week slalom training session. Even more exciting for me as I had a brand new wing to fly.
Flying in Spain

I have just returned from a month in Spain where I have been working with Parajet Dealers Flyspain. Its great to be able to get away from wet and windy England for some time and enjoy the beautiful weather for paramotoring and paragliding southern Spain has to offer.
Paragliding at the Air Games

Well the flying trips just seem to keep on going as I’ve just returned from a wonderful week in Turkey. For those unfamiliar there is a coastal paragliding site called Ölüdeniz and its got everything for a great holiday.
Paramotoring in Oman
Posted on October 10, 2013 in Ric Womersley
I’ve Just arrived back from Oman where we have been demonstration the capability’s of the Parajet Zenith as part of the PADSS (Parajet Aerial Defense Security Systems) programme. One of the awesome things about being a Parajet Team member is trips like this!
The Travelling Paramotor Pilot

From the cool northern fjordlands of Norway, the next destination on this epic paramotor/filming trip for ‘Aerials2’ was Austria, though we arrived in Vienna to find that Sylvestre’s Parajet Zenith’s had gone missing.
World Paramotor Slalom Competition
Posted on September 17, 2013 in Phil Jennings
So as usual it’s the day after another epic trip, this time to the small airfield in Aspres-sur-Buëch in the French Alps where the first World Paramotor Slalom Competition was being held. As competitions go its a very simple format. You launch and fly a pre determined route around several inflated pylons. Your time is measured using infrared gates and scores are instant. Of course flying full speed 2 meters from the ground whist doing high wingovers turns is great fun it requires lots of training and nerves of steel!
It’s been a crazy month!

This last month has been the busiest and most varied I think I have ever had since choosing paramotoring as a career but every second has been epic and I wouldn’t ever wish to change a thing. A very warm welcome was received by the flying folks in Brazil although the weather was the chilliest on record and a bit of a shock after leaving a heatwave in the UK, usually it’s the other way around…
