Enchanted Air Paragliding

Enchanted Air Paragliding


I had a beginner wing for a while. Did a few flights off the training hill. In the end I was too afraid to do much more than kiteing in the park and sold it. Sometimes I regret it 🙂
The Dixon White Memorial Fly In is one week away (Friday-Sunday, Sept 22-24). Here is the registration page: http://azhpa.org/dixon-white-memorial-fly-in-registration/

For those of you who have never been to the Craters or to the annual Fly In:

The AZHPA campsite is at the southwestern base of North Sheba Crater: https://goo.gl/maps/Hmn4xFwHtGQ2. This is primitive camping with no hookups, so bring your own everything, except for port-a-pottys, which will be onsite. Rides up to the top courtesy of “The Beast” military transport truck, and a retrieve driver with 4x4 and hangie racks also will be available. Saturday night dinner will be just down the road at the 2 Bar 3 http://www.2bar3.com/about-us.html.

Merriam and Sheba craters are dormant volcanic cones, with forgiving launch areas and wide open LZs. Sheba is 800 ft tall (6,400 ASL) and Merriam (across the road to the north) is 1,100 ft tall (6,800 ASL). With both of these hills, any wind direction can be flown. Ridge soaring with anything over 10 or 12 mph. Glass offs frequently happen right before sunset, and midday thermal soaring is possible given a good lapse rate, with XC routes in many directions.
