    I've always wanted to do that, but the wings' prices, even 2nd-hand, were too steep for me the last time I enquired. Maybe I'll get a chance to take a piggy-back flip one day...

    I've been flying now for 5/6 odd years, but lately done too little flying to keep my glider. But to get rid of a wing is similar to sell one of your kids!

    PradoPiet, contact Tony Gibson (0829482001).
    It's his business. Was captain of the RSA team to China last year.

    Send me a PM if you want his web address before Dirks kicks me again.

    Hi Rico & Hannes. Thanx for the info. I've managed to get hold of Tony Gibson. Will soon be in the air legally, and I found a 1yr old Apco wing for a good price as well . Where do you do your flying?

    Hi all.
    I've done paragliding for about 5 years. Crashed almost do the "D" word, and stoped.
    Flying the coast is lekke, and would like to know if anyone knows somebody wanting to sell a tandem glider.

    Thanks
