BONUS CLUB NIGHT 2ND MAY 2019 - Wing Wizardry and PHI (the Golden Ratio) with special guest Hannes Papesh and the Flybubble team

We are back for a bonus club night on 2ND MAY 2019 with some special guests...

An eye-opening evening talk by Hannes Papesh of PHI, presented by Flybubble, hosted by Dales Hang gliding and Paragliding Club on Thursday 2nd May 2019 at the HORSE AND FARRIER in Otley (LS21 1BQ) at the slightly earlier time of 7 for a 7.30pm start in the upstairs function room.. 

Legendary wing design wizard Hannes Papesh shares his knowledge and insights gleaned from over 30 years of designing the truly amazing gliders we enjoy flying so much. Amongst other things, Hannes will talk about the present state and future of of paragliding, development strategies (and tools) and, of course, sex and freeflight.

He will also be able to answer any wing design or other freeflight related questions like does “shark nose” / “air scoop” make sense (pros and cons), launch behaviour, handling, feedback, sink/climb rate, stability, certification, folding lines… and of course he is in a unique position to be able to answer any questions pilots might have about his personal history and the PHI team and their wizardly wings.

Hannes loves interaction with the audience and likes to go with the flow. He has a huge amount of experience and background material going back 30 years to answer any kind of question and support it with pictures etc. Each talk is bound to be highly informative and interesting, and totally unique!

The talk will be presented by Carlo Borsattino or Greg Hamerton of Flybubble, and followed by open discussion forum.

There is also the opportunity for pilots to demo PHI gliders on the day of the meeting at the 'Testival'
