    Gradient Golden 4

    The new Golden4 from the Gradient development team is the follow-up to the most successful Gradient model ever, the Golden series. The result is pure style, an aerodynamic design with an incomparable variety of uses and the potential to meet the demands of all kinds of pilots. 

    The agility, lift, performance and speed of the Golden4 are backed up by strong passive safety. Gradient’s typical sensitive handling and immediate feedback means pilots relax and quickly start to fly in harmony with the wing. 

    It makes the Golden4 a truly reliable partner. Flying becomes intuitive, leaving your mind free to concentrate on making decisions about your flight.

    Woody Valley Wani Harness


    WANÌ is a new reversible harness with a self-inflating air bag, designed to ensure maximum lightness with the best passive safety tested by us. The geometry or the belts system is the same as the Haska harness, which has demonstrated an excellent balance between
    manoeuvrability and stability.
    With WANÌ, the concept of reversibility has changed, diversifying the backpack from the harness. This new system considerably
    improves the aesthetics of the two parts as well as their functionality, because they are designed exactly for their task.

    Carefully designed in every detail, WANÌ offers a container for an emergency parachute with adjustable volume and a zip bridle over.  Excist also in Light version.

    Jiri Flight Google Maps

    Jiri Flight

    Jiri flew from sandpach the other day. His plan was to make it to Salmon Holes where my dad was fishing. That way he would get a lift back with him.

    Conditions were light and challenging but he made it all the way to the Bold Head. The end of that beautiful coast line. First time ever, now we know it is possible !!

    He flew back from Bold Head to Salmon Holes, but my dad was gone, the flight took just over 2 hours to complet. I went to pick him up. Awesome flight, well done Jiri.

    You can see below his flight track, if you have  google Earth it gets even better, it can be in 3D!!!

    The flight path is shown on the image below (click to see a larger image), or open the file here on Google Drive to get more details. You can also download it then open using Google Earth to see altitude during the flight.
