Hey Gavin, thanks heaps for your content! I’ll be rooting for you in this years X-Alps!
I’m sure you get a lot of requests for people to be on the show, but I’ll request two anyway.
Peter Holdy, Is a YouTuber, XC pilot, Instructor. And started by being self taught, he does not recommend it now, but still a fun story. His channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDQNgIO3Sk-P657siKu_LBw/about
Godfrey Wenness, owner of manilla and most experienced pilot in Australia. Help a World Record – Paragliding Open Distance 335kms from, Nov 1998 – 2002. Also held the Worlds Longest Tandem Open Distance – 223kms from Jan 2000 – 2003. And was the first Australian pilot to fly over 100 miles, 200kms, 300kms, 200 miles. Maybe the most interesting, he does flying and Testing Prototypes for Advance Paraglider’s, and material testing for Advance Paraglider’s.
Anyway, if you read this it means a lot. Catch-ya in the air.
Thanks so much Moses! I’ll plug these recommendations into my calendar and hope to make them happen! Thanks so much for your support and the suggestions!
Great content, keep up the good work.
But as a hang glider pilot, I would appreciate a bit more hang gliding stuff.
I know hang glider pilots only make up around 20% of free flyers.. but it’s still a significant number and if you include pilots that fly both paragliders and hang gliders, the numbers are even higher.
That being said, a lot of your content is relevant to both sports, so is well worth a small donation.
Yes I know, I’m really sorry we haven’t done more. I’ve got shows set up with Manfred, Christian and Wolfy soon, so expect more very shortly!
Gavin you and your crew are doing an amazing thing for this sport, really appreciate it. i ve been following since a began a short while ago, about 3 years and has made a significant difference to how I perceive things, not only with my flying , but also my mental state.
i thank you and all that bring there experiences to the show.
Im sure i vouch for everyone else out there too.
Awesome, thanks so much Lee! Stoked you are enjoying it!
Love what you are doing for the sport. My guest request would be Martin Scheel. He started flying 1987 and started building paragliders two years later. He was a comp and test pilot. From 1996 he was and still is Coach of the swiss national team. Another recommendation is Dani Loritz, he’s the SIV Instructor for the swiss national team.
Keep it up and good luck for the x alps.
Oh man I’d love to get them on. I was actually in a quick convo with Martin awhile back but he never got back to me. I’ll try again. Daniel I don’t know, please send me his contact details. And thanks so much for the support!
Dani Loritz was also the design engineer behind Team5 gliders.
