Louise's flight with Gecko Fly

Louise of LouLous in Turre, took some time out from the hairdressing business to come flying with Gecko Fly. Last time she did this was in the Alps - no running on the take off, she did it with skis!
Here she is ready to go.......and a great take off which literally swept Louise off her feet!

Mags goes paragliding for MACS

Mags was given a voucher for a tandem paragliding flight and decided to do it for a cause. She took to the skies in aid of MACS - Mojacar's cancer support charity.
Here's Mags, front row on the left, just before heading for take-off with friends and supporters, they stayed on the ground with a birds eye view from the terrace at the Saliente restaraunt.

Here's Mags getting prepared, watched from the sidelines by Allen

And finally in the air ..........

..............and a big smile on the ground

Mags has already raised nearly 300 euros for cancer support here in Spain - if you'd like to add to that total and make a donation click here

gone with the wind ?

Caroline came flying with us eariler on in the year
and her article finally made it to print in the Costa Almeria News
last week. thanks caroline !

talking wind....
Sitting here with gale force nwesterlies
the wind generator is making horrific noises
but at least the batteries are full
and the occasional down chucking of huge quantities of water
that have washed out our track to take off (twice)
summer seems a long time ago ........ here in almeria
we need the rain and probably more of it than we have had in
october, however looking forward to some more stable
weather patterns later this week
