killing me...

 Stories like this really inspire my pilot dreams...only 11 years old and almost 700 flights.  And this was over a year ago - the kid probably has 800 flights by now.  8,101,75,0,B

Cool,as long as the kid always appreciates the power of flight. The first year I tried to see how many I could rack up, now I try to savor each flight, be in the moment & pace myself.

I have to add that the majority of his flights have been just paragliding without a motor. His dad Russ Bateman is a paraglider and paramotor instructor in Utah and he got his son started in the sport when he was 8 years old.

Yea, but his landing gear don't have as many miles on it as yours. The idea of the three wheeled cart is not a bad one. I bet with your skills you could easily build one that would get the job done.

Watched the video. Way Cool! He must have an understanding mother and a neat father. What an experience for a young man.
