Took my aerochute on a trip to the Kimberley’s a couple of weeks ago Had an awesome time flying around the escarpment, afternoon flights were a bit windy and gusty so I had to keep my distance and altitude in check but the morning flights were a dream. Had a good hay paddock to take off from at the Vic River Roadhouse and some unbelievable salt flats in Wyndhum that stretched for miles and were so smooth and I was able to drive around on the ground doing figure 8’s and turning circles. El Questro was another story lol it had an air strip with a fairly constant crosswind so I had to pick my moment and a first time pax that was scared shitless of heights but once I was in the air the scenery was breathtaking and one I will never forget

Thanks for that You put a fair bit of trust in your engine. nev

Hi Nev,

 

I expect with any emergency landing in the Top End there are other factors (with teeth) that us southerners don't normally consider.

Fantastic! Spent ten good years in the Kimberley and I have to say, watching this made me feel homesick for the very first time.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Guys,

 

I suppose i do put alot of trust in my Engine but as the chute doesn’t go that fast I’m not too worried about an engine out i always carry an epirb and a satellite phone just in case but you are wright Cosmic if I land in some of the swamps I fly over the crocks would have me shitting myself
