Sunrise paramotor flight


Yesterday I got a call and was asked if I am keen to fly tomorrow at the very morning. Of course I was.
I was meant to be at Prospect Reservoir (ca 40km west from Sydney) at 0700.
At this time five pilots including me were on the site. We all spread our wings and warmed up the motors.
There were two trikes and three foot launch paramotors in between us. I took photo camera with me to the air. So much fun with nice light conditions.
The flight was very pleasant with a few small bumps which Synthesis handled without any problems. I basically did one huge circle around the reservoir. Pilots were everywhere. Beautiful view at Sydney sky-scarpers on the horizon was a great reward for getting up so early on Sunday.
After one hour I decided to land because the sun had already warmed up the launching site and I wanted avoid bumpy (thermal) landing since the area is all grey/black. Nil wind landing was a bit fast as usual but I touched down without any issues.
It was great to meet new pilots flying paramotors in Sydney area. Plenty of pictures from today. Enjoy!
