Re: I really only love hang-gliding..

Remember, there's only one letter between a pg and a pig, and it is I.
Only I can make a pig fly, and I choose not.
Not at this time, no thank you, I'll keep my spine.
Some pigs are flying, but not close to me.
I punch the accelerator and again I am free!

Re: A Few Sites With A Launch Or Landing..

Can you send this to your "fearless" leaders over there? Would they find it funny?

Re: Hot Times

Unless climate criers are also pro-nuclear environmentalists, they should be ignored. Also, any of them that are leaving huge carbon footprints in their wake should also not be given any airtime, resources, attention, or respect. How can people like Richard Branson and Al Gore sleep at night after l...

Re: Hot Times

Some governments are promoting fear, and trying to use fear to gain total control over their citizens. Don't fall for it. Just fly.

Re: A Few Sites With A Launch Or Landing..

I'm sorry to hear that your government has done that to you. That authoritarian suppressive control model would never "fly" here in the USA. Most of us have "gotten over" the china virus hype/scare and have gone back to our regular lives.

Thanks for the videos.

Re: Hang Gliding banned?

Makes perfect sense.
A bureaucrat heard that the china virus was spread through bars, and then found out through Wikipedia that hang gliders have "base bars", which pilots wipe their deplorable hands all over.

Re: What trikes are people using as Tugs?

It's ironic that here in the USA the authorities have made it more difficult for taxpaying citizens to fly recreationally, while at the same time making it easier for urban thugs to steal and kill without fear of incarceration. Also, the laws against illegal aliens are being disregarded while taxpay...

Re: Less Forum traffic?

As I slowly climb in what might well be the last thermal of my life, I'll gladly accept climate change over communist take-over, if that is the only two options on the horizon. Meanwhile, we're still digging up old gliders around here and flying them just for fun: Saturns, Pulses, Sensors (Model A a...
