Paramotor Tip to Tip 2008

Land's End to John O'Groats by Paramotor

This is just a note to wish the 6 paraglider pilots currently attempting to fly across britain in paramotors all the best with their adventure.

Tip to Tip 2008 is attempting to raise money for 2 charities The forces children's trust and some regional air ambulances.

The 6 motorised paraglider pilots took off on Jul 29 2008 from Land's End, and are currently battling the UK weather in a bid to accomplish their flying tasks.

When I do finally get round to planning my own hang glider flying adventure, I'd have a chat with these paraglider pilots to gain from their experience of their planning this event.
