Jake’s two passions are Skiing and Paragliding. Last Thursday (29th June) Jake flew his paraglider 115km from Hawkswick in the Yorkshire Dales to just north west of Ponteland. That’s over 70 miles. It had been too windy all day but the wind dropped around 4 p.m., pretty late in the day for an XC flight but I guess we are only just past the longest day.
The flight took 3 hours 20 Mins and reached a maximum altitude of 5800ft. Full details of the flight HERE. This is Jake’s 2nd longest flight ever and moves him to 6th in the BHPA XC League.
Congratulations to Jake, one of only 10 paraglider pilots in the UK to fly over 100km on 4 seperate occasions
