madroño sitio nuevo... casi!!


take off? could be lovely with a bit of cleaning!


finding a new site is not easy however we have a good
feeling about this one ! madroño
juan medico volunteers as wind dummy, or test pilot



looking sw ...

although the wind was a bit crossed
from the east
(its going to work best with a southerly
wind or pure thermal flying )
as you can see its definatly flyable
we have a soarable ridge no cables potentially
good take off, track almost to the top, and
large landing area....what else could we wish for ?


madroño

well we need permission ! for one, from the owner
who lives in Jaen, to clear the take off area
and more permission from the owner of the landing field
fingers crossed we can sort this out!


nice landing area!

we are always looking for new sites but this one
could be very special, suitable for all levels of pilots
including tandem flights
and not a electric cable in sight. Everytime I have been
up there I have seen vultures or imperial eagles, juan spotted
a eagle owl so we are in good company!
will keep you posted

paramotoring flight to los velez


crossing the pass of the sierra de las estancias
to enter the los velez valley looking ssw

church and town hall of velez rubio

velez blanco with its castle

i love these lines !

sheep and goats of bancalejo


Too much instability forcast for later on today so
no tandem work , getting in to the air for 7.45 am for a
nice smooth flight in to the valley of los velez, this high
pressure has given us a lot of haze, not brilliant for aerial shots
but got a few nice images on the way .
