Over the last few weeks an untrained (and therefore non BHPA, non-insured) paraglider pilot has been seen on our hills and spoken to several times.
He is a danger to himself, others and to our site agreements.
Please can everyone look out for him and explain the need for training, insurance and club membership. All those things are required to gain the land owner's permission to fly and to comply with the law.
You can put him in touch with me (Dave Lewis, Chief Coach) and I can sort out how best for him to join the BHPA and get his ratings.
I'm sure there's an echo in here?
WILL ALL MEMBERS PLEASE NOTE THAT THE NEED TO CONFIRM CLUB MEMBERSHIP, AND THUS PILOT QUALIFICATION AND INSURANCE, RESIDES WITH EACH AND EVERY MEMBER NOT SOME IMAGINARY SITE POLICE.
TO SIMPLIFY THIS, ALL MEMBERS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR THEIR SHGC HELMET STICKER.
Committee members and, I believe, coaches can check easily membership status using their mobile phones but may elect to charge £10 for this service ;0)
Once upon a time in the Southern Club there was gentlemanly behaviour in the sky. And it was Good.
I'd declared an ambitious 25km triangle from the Dyke, but after a few frustrating bunfights in thermals, I was doubting whether I'd be able to get away with so many other pilots there. Eventually it got a bit quieter and I pushed out front, found a thermal, flew out the front of it and straight into a super strong core which got me above all the pilots thermalling closer to the ridge within half a 360. A manageable gaggle of about 6 or 7 of us quickly formed and everyone proceeded to outclimb me.
