right to fly

para 2.7 section 9 of the Scottish Outdoor Access Code states clearly that under recreational activities the right to roam includes rights in the air and underground as long as it is a non motorised airsport. http://www.outdooraccess-scotland.com/outdoors-responsibly/access-code-and-advice/soac/ Cli...

Posting off Wings, Harnesses for service.

Next time you are sending your wing/harness for a service at Aerofix/The Loft or selling stuff on PG forum like Paramotors try this place below. I tried a few other couriers for larger items (wing and harness in the bag) and a PPG but was told it's too big to fit on the sorting machines they use whi...

Alti Rando

Hi Col,

Cheers for that. Had seen the safety brief about the buckles on the Northern Paragliding site. I'll ask the person selling it if it's a problem harness.

Just want some lighter gear.

Are you up on your feet Col? Are you likely to be out flying with us this summer?

woody valley

I ve had a look on 't'internet and it does look like a nice harness. I've seen a fairly decent looking AltiRando which is a bit more of a sit up position and a fairly old design but a decent price. My Skyline Pure is getting a bit old and needs a few minor repairs. I'm trying to ease the loads on my...

Supair Altirando or reversible harness

I want to get some more lightweight gear and am looking at a Supair Altirando or Hybrid reversible harness.

Anyone in the club got one I can sit in and check out if they fit me?

Karma points in it for you.
