I am excited to announce that I am off to represent the USA in the First FAI World Paramotor Slalom Championships in Aerodrome du Chevalet, France. The competition is being held from September 9th – 15th and I will return to the states on the 17th. It’s an honor to be part of this first time competition and I am proud to be representing the United States! I will try to keep you updated throughout the competition if I can get online. See you soon!
On December 7th, Ryan and one of his students, Deanna set the World Record for the Tandem Time to Climb to 3,000m
and also broke the existing Tandem altitude World Record by almost 5,000ft! They flew the Nirvana Instinct NS 230 and an Apco Play 42MKII for both World Records (more…)
I just received notice from the FAI that my Speed Over Straight Course 15km/25km has been ratified as a World Record. The final speed was 80.55km/hr! ( 50.05mph ) The old record was 72.96km/h
Thanks to all my sponsors and fellow pilots for their support.

Thanks to all my sponsors!

As many of you have already heard, I had a silly accident a few weeks ago and broke my back after falling out the side of my truck. I ended up in the hospital for a few days and while Joe & my dad graciously drove my truck and trailer to Florida, I had to fly out there and meet them. We decided to come right home after Beach Blast so that I could get some much-needed rest. After being home for a little over a week, I decided to head back to Arkansas for the Endless Foot Drag Competition. I was not planning to fly in the competition so instead of my proper competition gear, I only brought my Nirvana Top 80 motor with me.
