Getting ready to launch at sunrise

Venezuelan Gran Sabana

We are currently in the Gran Sabana in Venezuela. A wilderness of savanah flatlands and magical Tepuis rising high out of dense jungle. Michel Carnet, Ben and I are flying paramotors and it is wild – like something out of a glossy magasine! Yesterday, we flew 30km over dense jungle and past a small tepui […]

Roraima Tepui as seen from the air

HP Extreme Testing

I’m off with my brother Ben and world paramotor champion Michel Carnet to the Gran Sabana area of Venezuela. Humid rainforest meets wide open savannah along with huge flat-topped mountains called tepuis which were the inspiration behind Conan Doyle’s Lost World. We will spend three weeks out there and hope to have some spectacular flying […]

Avebury Stone Rings

There has been good high pressure for the last few days. We flew for an hour or so as the sun was setting on Monday 12th October and then on the following day we flew from Denmead in Hampshire all the way to the Stone Ring at Avebury and back which is about 200kms in […]


Coastal flying in September!

The forecast was good and on 24th September, Ben and I took off from our local field near Denmead in Hampshire. The skies were blue with puffy clouds. It was looking good. We gained height and flew over the outskirts of Portsmouth to Hayling Island, before dropping down low having jumped the gap to the […]


Flat batteries

Sunday 9th August was a beautiful day. I took the family down to Barry’s field just outside Guildford where there is a lovely field. There is lots for the children to look at, chickens, ducks, tractors, aeroplanes, model gliders, paramotors etc… We packed a picnic (and took the Paramotor down too!) I had not flown […]

Scottish inspirations…

Summer flying

What a lovely weekend – easterly winds 18kph plus… we were staying at Mum’s and Ben came down on Sunday. I had ‘snuck’ the glider into the car in the hope of getting a little flying in before our number 2 baby is born (due 3rd June!!). On Sunday morning we managed a little flying […]

Flying around London on a paramotor

The email came through from Michel…. “You fancy trying again, with just a small group of us…?” This was another opportunity to try to fly the circumference of London. This was to be without support and a true vol biv adventure over 2 days. The group was Michel Carnet, Laura Turner, myself and my brother […]



Just back from holiday and the weather was perfect for flying. Sadly I put my back out and spent most of the holiday on my back, in pain, unable to even pick up my 15 month old son Sebastian! It was sad! We were staying in a beautiful cottage just 2 miles from Fowey on […]
