Section II Spreading Your Wings | See Navigation Log Tools

Going places is fun, especially in a powered paraglider. You don't need any special tools beyond a bit better understanding of sectional charts and weather. The big difference is that, once you've left your home area, you're faced with the need to get back.

The best thing to remember is that we can land about anywhere. Many a nasty experience or worse has been avoided when the wise pilot landed before some impending weather overcame him.

A speed limit sign that I'd have a hard time exceeding.

One nice thing about our craft is the ability to read road signs. Be careful, this is smack dab down in the danger zone.
