Wanted to thank you again for working with my 15 year old son Cameron and I. No doubt, one of the wisest decisions I ever made was switching instructors from claude to you.
We had such a good weekend and we met a lot of nice people. I was so excited for my other son Tyler also. I mean how many kids get to go on a tandem ride on a ppg and also get to ride in an ultralight plane on the same weekend…for free! When Tyler gives me the go ahead, I’ll sign him up for lessons but I’m not going to rush him. I want it to be his decision.
After you left, Cameron went up for another 3 more flights and I took mine up once , All of Cameron’s take offs were excellent. In fact, when he was having trouble doing a reverse launch due to the diminishing winds, he went to a forward launch and nailed it perfectly. All his landings were excellent as well. He had such a good time and we’re looking forward to doing a lot of flying together. We’re hoping to go back down to Salton Sea Friday night and fly Saturday. Although it’s a bit of a drive, I think it’s a good idea to get in our initial flights where there’s stable air currents and lots of room.
We slept with smiles on our faces all night. Thanks again for making our introduction into PPG’S not only informative but a pleasurable one. I’ll be up there Wednesday or Thursday to drop off your wind sock.
I finally got the chance to fly my new BlackHawk tonight. Because the left-handed throttle is different than my old motor setup, I blew two launches before getting airborne. But once in flight, I was amazed at both my climb-out and and the smoothness and power of the /Black Hawk/Black Devil. Before flight, I was concerned about the significant increase in power I would be getting, but in flight, the extra power was comforting since I knew I could climb more rapidly if need be. I didn’t want to land. WOW what a machine!
