«…Any pilot dumb enough to require a level three call and an instruction to land during a world cup task does not belong.»
Guy Anderson har ikke SPOT:
«** When flying Sun Valley a SPOT is highly recommended. It’s basically the best thing for almost-live tracking in this type of mountainous terrain. SPOTs are mandatory for next week’s Open Distance Comp.»
Filmed during Paragliding World Cup, Sun Valley, Idaho. An epic 200km task across immense and remote terrain at altitudes of up to 18,000ft.
This video is dedicated to Mike Pfau and his team, who made this flight a reality.
Soundtrack: Black Lead by Death in Vegas

Egentlig greit å dele inn slik i underklasser, flatlandsflyging er jo som kjent enklere mht til å fly langt. Men, som artikkelen tar opp, det kan være et problem å definere hva som er en fjelltur eller ei. Hva om en den går hovedsakelig gjennom fjellområder men avsluttes med litt flatland?
A mix of some nice paragliding shots I did using my Go Pro HD between early 2011 and July 2012.
Shot in the following location: Orcier, Mieussy, Chamonix, Annecy, Le Revard, Montreux (CH), a place near Crested Butte (CO, USA).

Live tracking VS SPOT at Big Spring
Fint med fyldige data men så var det sikkerheten da..
«Q: This is a really cool app… can I get rid of my SPOT now ?
A: Think about that decision carefully. A SPOT tracker sends up a distress signal via L-band satellite, which is then dispatched globally based on where the signal came from. It has one, and only one purpose – to save your ass. While our tracker client can do a lot, it does need a cellular data connection to get the data out. While coverage is good in much of the world, I still personally fly in places where (from time to time) I get no signal at all.»
