Dad goes tandem at Woodside Aug 24

My Dad has always wanted to go paragliding so I got him a flight today!
Dad is excited to finally go paragliding!
Tandem pilot extraordinaire Al Thielmann took Dad while I did a solo flight alongside.  It was high pressure and prone to getting windy, so we made sure to do the flight while it was still thermic but not yet blown out and unpleasant to fly in.
Al and Dad got the launch perfect.
About 25 minutes and Dad had a fantastic time with Al.  We got above launch quite easily and over to the south knoll before heading out to land.  We landed just as it started to get bumpy as I believe the later tandems and students had to bail on flying.

Happy smiles all around!
