My Videos of Speed Flying in the Sierra of California

Postby DaveTurner » Wed Mar 09, 2011 11:47 pm

Hey Guys!


Been down here in Bishop this winter, flying my speed wing here in the hills. Been having tons of fun learning this new game. Have had a ton of fun, some good flights, and a close call or two. Check out these videos, I hope you guys like them. If so, send the link out so other people can see them too. The Table Mountain video is from just yesterday.

And if you are a speed wing pilot as well, get a hold of me and come fly in the Sierra!

Totally what I am looking for.
I want to try this. Where do you go to fly? What better wing to buy? Any tips on how to learn?

I am in San Diego area. Have skies. Do not have a wing yet. Any pointers would be highly appreciated!
Nice video!

Speed flying?

When I think of "speed flying" the Sierra Nevada I think of when I was at flying through the mountains at 600 mph. Not sure I'd call this para-wing stuff "speed" flying.

Nonetheless, it's totally cool and I am envious.
