Richard and Mary were visiting us from the Raleigh area. They had spent the week camping in hammocks, relearning how to hoop dance around a bonfire (hula hooping), and learning how to hang glide. They and Mark (down from New York) had a great week of training and it paid off. The photos of Mark and Mary’s first launches are in the last post and this time it was Richard’s turn. Saturday morning, in calm conditions, Richard had his first mountain flight. He flew great!
We love when the new mountain pilots come back up to launch after their first flights with a triumphant smile on their face, “I did it!”. Richard was ecstatic. Congratulations Richard, awesome flight!
