I first met Ryan Shaw at the European Slalom Championship in 2013, and we all hung round together for the week as there was only a few of us that spoke English. Back then I knew he would be a fun guy to spend time with especially when he told me about his collection of toys he had back in Phoenix USA.
Another Podium Finish
Posted on May 19, 2014 in Phil Jennings
So summer is nearly here and it has kicked off in style in the UK with the start of the competition season. Early April saw us holding the first leg of the British Championship at the fantastic Hull Aero Club, as usual the British weather forecast was marginal so many pilots avoided the long drive north thinking it would be wasted. This was a mistake for them as we managed to set several good tasks and get an official league result. Myself and Mark Morgan shared joint first with Barney Townsend in third place.
Postcard from Marshall Islands

If I wasn’t convinced before, I definitely am now, I live the most privileged life, especially one that an adventurous Paramotor pilot could wish for. Since the last scribble, not only have I been one of only a few to have ever ventured around the postcard perfect Seychelles Islands but even fewer have been to the exotic and mystical Myanmar with their flying gear and now my ventures have brought me once again to the incredibly remote Marshall Islands and to everyone’s knowledge here, I seem to be the only one who’s ever gone skywards in this independent island republic with a propeller on his back!
Spring has sprung!

The competition scene for 2014 has started and I have just returned from Hull Aero Club where we had the first leg of the British Paramotor League.

Once again I find myself in the eviable position of not only being able to escape the horrid British winter, but also being asked again to take my beloved paramotor to some exotic locations to film aerial footage for a Brazilian TV series called ‘Paradise Islands.’
Less flying, more partying!

The season is upon us and I’m now at home tucked in bed recovering after the Parajet Christmas party. Caroline and I traveled down joined by fellow team pilot Ric and his girlfriend Chloe not quite knowing what to expect. One thing I do know is if Parajet are involved then anything could happen.
The craziest day of my life

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.
