14 April 2008. Dad launched his paratriking course on a windy afternoon. Andre, the instructor, started by giving him detailed and well-animated instructions on how to perform a nasty crash. With both of them well frightened, they went for a short spin on my XCitor. Andre gave dad a chance to control the paratrike for a bit and was impressed with his skill. Unfortunately, it was too windy to continue the course, so they landed, somewhat shaken, and took a break.

I flew it myself a couple of times, struggling with drifts and gusts. We waited a bit more, but the wind remained high and unstable. We decided to call it a day and drove back home, stopping to enjoy a great meal at sunset on the lake shore.
