Tiempo mal

Not a good flying week for us Geckos! Stormy, cloudy and strong easterley winds meant we didnt get much flying done here - but ever optimistic, heres hopeful passengers Terri, Paddy and friends learning all about the alternative activity of para-waiting up on the take off - even the windsock has given up and tied itself in a knot

From helicopter to paraglider

Claire, one of only 80 female helicopter pilots in the UK, came to fly with Gecko Fly Parapente last week - and flew not once, but twice!
Here's Steve getting Claire ready for her flight watched by local pilot Hector.
