Hang Gliding Blog Hijacked!

Having had my hang gliding blog for over 18 months, I was disappointed when recently while updating one of my flying blog posts I found out I could no longer update or post to my blog url.

Over the last 3 weeks I have been trying to get to help me, but all to no avail.

The last stroke came yesterday when someone finally made a post to my old hang gliding blog url (some of you might have received the feed update by email).

I have moved my hang glider diary and amended the feedblitz feed so you should only get my hang gliding updates from now on.

As for my hang gliding adventure, so far I have had about 9 short free flights as an independent tow launched hang glider pilot. I'm hoping to be out this Saturday hang gliding weather permitting, and will also have someone shooting some video footage for me so I can put together a short clip for an American internet TV station.

I still have some more work to do before I'm ready for my third and final hang glider training course which will see me converting to powered hang gliding. If all goes well, this autumn/winter will be enough for me to gain the required experience, so I'll be ready by early 2007.

I'll keep you updated, so for those of you that don't check here regularly, why not use the subscribe option on the right so you can get email notification of hang glider updates.

Go for it.

I am a Britt currently living in Atlanta GA. I have wanted to learn to Hang glide since I was 12 years old. Finally started learning 3 years ago here in the US.

I fly here most weekends. It has been worth every second it took.

Flying Lands End to John O'Groats is going to be a challenge even with a powered harness as in your photo. Without it may well be impossible. But such challenges are what progresses our sport and it sounds like you will be a great advocate for the sport of Hang Gliding. Go for it.

Good luck.

What ever else happens you will have fun and meet plenty of good friends in the hang gliding community.

Good Luck with your venture, I would never do it myself, but am glad someone has the guts to try!
