On the 5th February 2014, I flew to Valley Springs California, and learned how to fly a Powered Paraglider at the Blackhawk Paramotor Ranch.

Now my girlfriend and I have brought along this amazing flying machine to compliment our travels around the world.
I am flying a Blackhawk Kestrel Pro weight shift unit with an Airmax 220 Paramotor. My wing is a Velocity Elektra meant for beginners and intermediates and can also be used for free flying which I will try one day.
