Impromptu Gathering & Olympic Training Center
2015-12-06 Phil Russman's Gathering at Otay Mesa, San Diego, CA
Little Black Soaring
El Cajon Carjacking?
Under the Bridge
That's quite the group!
Phil Russman put together an impromptu gathering of San Diego
paramotorists and we tore it up just outside of Brown Field's "D"
airspace. GREAT to see and fly with these guys.
The site we used was Otay. It's private land abutting the Mexican
border with an enormous prison complex to the north, a busy GA airport
to the west, mountains to the east and neighborhoods well north. There's
a greenway, though, that you can fly to the coast.
One of the locals flies by on his Air Conception.
Phil Russman flying like he's filming JC Perren, importer of the Kangook.
Tim Kaiser with Mexico behind him.
JC Perren tickling the dust.
Jeff Goin trying to avoid looking silly in a teardrop-shaped helmet
while trying out Aerolight's new paramotor.
Jeff Hamann alights with style on his homebuilt machine.
Back at the Bridge but this time from the other side. Jeff Hamann
proceeded to go down to slalom the supports.

I didn't even know there was such a place. This training facility is owned
by the Olympic organization.
From the department of ridiculous looks, Jeff Goin wearing the helmet
that he had -- an inherited free flight model that nobody ever claimed
after it just showed up in my pile of stuff many years ago.
Tim Kaiser flies by the LZ. Wow is this a great place!
