9mar18--During this time of year ( the off season ) what is seen is mostly new and experienced pilots doing training. At times gliders are parallel to the sea in the air and not flying, pilots get the feel of the gliders doing this and at times you can see young kids 'sailing their gliders'. Experienced pilots are working towards a higher level license to allow them to TANDEM a passenger. These pilots have tons of flight hours and are pros. During the season tandem is the norm. with our host and other agencies sponsoring rides to folks along with photographs / videos. Pilots a with passenger can touch down as gentle as stepping down one step. A 'landing team' pair help insure the glider collapses while holding up the waist harness of the passenger till they get their 'land feet' again. The landing team also clears tourists on the promenade as pilots approach then repack the equipment. The promenade is very busy at times and it is quite a show. Again these tandem pilots are pros. and with the landing teams very very few incidents occur. Amateurs and thrill seekers have the incidents. Thanks GrAVity.
iv just seen a astronaut land, hehe
I should rather use the word "paraglider"
Just watched a skydiver land .. quite gently. Looks a lovely place to be.
