Hi Matt,

Well done on gaining your CP. You might struggle a little with temp memberships which last 10 days and coaching unless there is a prolonged weather window. Hopefully see you on the hill sometime.

Introductions / New Club Pilot looking for experience!
« Last post by mforrester14 on Saturday 16 February 2019: 18:06 »
Evening!  I have just completed my CP Paragliding at Crickhowell, Wales and I am looking to gain some flying experience in the Peaks! I have my own kit, so I am just looking for some coaching and people to fly with to gain my 10hr+ to progress!  Looking forward to getting stuck in to this fantastic sport and getting to know people in the club!  I haven’t joined the club yet as I get moved around the country every so often so I am hoping to get a couple of Temporary Memberships before I find out a permanent base.

Thanks

Matt

Hi Ross, No actually I didn't lose any height and it was level flight into the wall. That track was from my Skydrop another track from my kobo shows level flight see here https://ayvri.com/scene/49j7dy46je/cjqxh7x6x00013964wvyevc1k When you look at it bear in mind, it is using altitude from baro reading and QNH is out by about 20', i.e. at take off it shows be about 20' higher and at the point of impact clearing the wall by 20'. The critical point was when I was trying to turn left while level with the hill but still out front, the ground track shows a kick to the right which pointed me towards the wall, there was no wing deflation and the vertical rotor I hit at that point continued to put me into the wall despite all attempts to turn left.

I cringed when I watched Waynes youtube flight a few weeks later. He took off in fairly strong conditions with the wind off further to the South. His first turn mirrored mine although he was probably 20' higher due to the increased wind strength. His second turn was almost the exact spot I tried to turn. My advice would be to avoid turning at that spot in similar conditions as the chance of vertical rotor is significant, worth talking through with new pilots.

Hi Chris,

Nice one for sharing!

I found the final part of your video interesting as you seem to loose quite a bit of height all of a sudden.

Interested to hear if in hindsight you think there is there anything you could have done to avoid the collision and if you have decided to change anything as a result of your incident?
