“Big thanks to Shane Denherder and Byron Leisek (with Jared Leisek assisting) for an fantastic week of PPG training on the Oregon coast! The 8-day clinic was truly a life changing event for me, as I’m now hopelessly hooked on flying, and can’t wait to use it as a new platform for my photography after a 45-year career of shooting the world from the ground. The days were long (12-14 hours) and intense, but also fun and relaxed. Instruction was thorough, clear, patient, and well-paced – with lots of highs and lows (both soaring and planking) that steadily built our individual skills and confidence until we were ready and able to successfully fly.
I’ve been fortunate to experience a lot of great adventures in my life, and I’d have to rank this week of training right up at the top of my list. Because now, as I turn 68 in a couple of days, I know the best is yet to come … and that’s a really great gift!”
