Incident Details

January 1, 2006 Location of the incident: , Type of Incident:

Had another mate who has just taken paramotoring up he has about 10 flights in total. He had a hard time getting off the ground and when he did get up he flew about for 20 min then flew in the lee side of a big hill and got in some rotor i think, and the wing ended up in front of him done a bit of a dance then tried to spin but he got it all back together ok had another 20 min flying. By this time the wind went to 0. I forgot to give him a radio so when he come in to land he left motor running on tickover and panicked a bit when he was coming in so fast and put full brakes on at about 10ft and stalled the wing he was ok but a smashed prop and a bent cage on a Rad Arrow about £250 for the prop and i think we can fix the cage ok.
