The 2022 Colombian trip was a success. The group shared lots of great stories, tons of photos and videos. Many different places were flown, new warm hearted friends, picturesque towns visited ,great food and fantastic hospitality. BRAVO! Couple moments below, captured by the group's leader Orlando.

Members of our paragliding club departed for Colombia      . The warm weather there paired with superb flyable conditions every winter provide a great escape from the Wisconsin's winter wonderland. In the meantime, those of us who remained, did not stay put at all.

January is starting slow. Weather is to blame, delivering strong winds and some unpleasant temperatures. But if there is a will, there is a way. Welcome to Llogito Mena. First 2 flights for him and he will be back for more!

Closing this fantastic year with some great flying at Lake Michigan. Welcome to Lida Yang to our paragliding club. Happy NEW 2022 to all and look forward to seeing you on the next flyable day.

  • 12/14/21

So far, December has delivered odd weather. It has been either crappy winds with rain or great flying conditions offering lots of practice hours. Nothing in between. 

  • 11/27/21

The winter is knocking on our door. The sky began to change and temps dropped. Mackinsey, Harry, Steph and Alex are restless and don't give those gliders a break. ADMIRATIONS to ALL!!

  • 11/12/21

The trip to Hager was yet another full day of flying. Dylan and Dave are one step away from their P2 USHPA license-Passport to the WORLD OF FLIGHT. Of course, there we met up with members from the local paragliding club which only made the day even better. Bender delivered again. This place rarely disappoints!

  • 10/27/21

We finally found time for that video. Scenes from our recent trip to Macedonia. ENJOY :))))

  • 10/11/21

Allan joined us for a flight these days. We had to wait a bit in order for the thermals to mellow down but of course the hold up was worth it. Officially, Compass AirSports has been having the busiest and the most exiting Tandem Flight log for the past couple of years. Both powered and unpowered, our operation is going strong and our clients love it! WAY TO GO WISCONSIN! :)))

We rounded September to be a very busy month. We certainly did not miss a flyable day and the new joiners had a tremendous progres. Dave has been working really hard on his PPG to PG conversion. Knocking down the flight LOG like nothing. We also added a second towing vehicle in order to keep everyone happy .

September has been nothing but pure FUN so far!!!

  • 8/29/21

Congratulations to David for his first thermic flight. Harry and Mackinsey will be towing soon. Their gear is being worked on now. Alex is already taking his first low altitudes flights. Long Intro session with Veronika. Having briefly flown paragliders some 18 years ago, she is now considering joining the local club. Tom scored a very good day this week too, first lift off. Admirations!!!

"GREAT JOB" to Steph, Tom, Harry, Mackinsey, Divya, Andrew, Alex, Ashish, Tyler and of course to the group from Iowa driving all the way...and to everyone else this past 2 weeks. Their determination and love for the sport were AMAZING.

Tandems, tandems, tandems...We continue to be the busiest tandem operation in the state of Wisconsin and the month of July gave us no break from that. We extend our appreciation to all our customers who came and flew with us this month. Weather was a factor as always but everyone communicated with us spot on and nothing was missed. Harry, Mackinsey, Alvin...and more.

We are back from Macedonia. We met some good old friends while there. And made many new. Got to fly fantastic new for us places, like the one at Lake Ohrid on the border between Macedonia, Greece and Albania. Mavrovo was another gem in our trip. At the FAI Accuracy Landing competition there we scored 11th. Not the best but the competition was fierce. WE LOVE MACEDONIA!!!

Some real long flights were done this months. The conditions have been superb and the club pilots went out and beyond on pretty much any flyable day. XC in Wisconsin rocks.

We had another memorable week. The Illinois paragliding club paid us a visit. Jaro, Kury and Braveheart took up to the sky above the Wisconsin River together with Dmitry, Curt, David, Josh, Adam. Dylan did his first high altitude tows on his new Mojo6. Steph made her first steps into paragliding and we are honored to have more female presence in our club. Paul brought the second winch so we can be more efficient and meet the demand for flying. Conditions delivered for a great day.

Escaping the "pull" of the small hill and skying out is always a challenge. But quite rewarding once a reality. Last week Adam had a few solo XC flights and got to enjoy his Air Design Vivo to the fullest. Josh did his first tows and soon will be joining us thermalling in the sky over Wisconsin.

David Marthe, Adam and I stole a day away from work and made a trip to the M. Petho from Delaware visited Wisconsin and we found a good day to take him up for a flight. It is always fun sharing the sky with first timers.

Winter in Wisconsin is over...These beautiful flying days just make it official. Full on club preparation for the summer. Dylan got his shiny Mojo6 and is now ready to rock the sky. Brian rejoined us after a good 6 months break. Vlad from Michigan visited for a day to pick up his Gin glider...and more

  • 4/17/21

April delivered no snow and some real good practice days. Dmitry, Jack and Dylan are now waiting for their new gliders from Ozone but that doesn't stop them from improving their skills while using the club's "toys" on any given day. Here is a preview of a recent good day... 

  • 3/30/21

Josh has been expressing interest in adding free flying to his already existing powered paragliding skills. It is always great when you find a way to enjoy flying the whole day. Jack is now deep into his P2 skill set build-up and first efficient towing became a reality. Going higher and reaching further with every flight. Towing, towing, and more towing on any flyable day! And we now have a 4-legged talisman ;)

Much free flying was done this past few weeks. We even managed to steal a good soaring day at the old Letter M hill. Dylan did his first tandem instructional flight on the winch and after a few more close to the ground session will be soon ready to solo

Nick received his speed riding Ozone Fazer 4  and of course we went to the park to enjoy it. Other guys showed up so once again it was a one happy day with the crew. The end of the day was reserved for cleaning and repacking some PPG reserves
