With the forecast of strong NE winds in Wiltshire on Friday the 4th March it was decided that a posse of Cloudbase groupies would head for the Welsh hills and try and fly on the fantastic Pandy ridge. We also had some staff training to do with Chris Williams on the tandem so it was well worth the punt and give it a try.

We arrived on site for 10:30 to overcast skies and a howling gale so it was decided that a trip to the café in the Abergavenny bus station was in order. We stuffed our little faces with bacon butties and coffee and after an hour the weather had improved enough for us to wonder back to take off.

It was now looking much better and although not a classic Pandy day much fun was had by all and we ended the day with a nice flight to the bottom landing field.

Chris is now a good way through his Tandem training and is going to be in the driving seat from now on!!!!

Nik Valiris will also be a proud owner of the Team 5 blue, he was demoing one and liked it so much he bought one.

Here’s hoping for some more easterlies and flying the Pandy Massif again soon.
