Our Team has a full time Paragliding Woman Tandem Pilot and in high Season we have two lady Pilots a first in South Africa .
Lucille Bueble came up through the ranks and worked very hard to attain her status as one of the very few working female pilots within South Africa . Lucille started as a ground assistant and then started to learn to paraglide and we quickly saw the talent and dedication and enrolled her on a Instructors course . She is now our Manager of our Team and full time Instructor as well as Team pilot .
Hartenbos Mossel Bay Paragliding sites have been having problems as the Municipality has been trying to fine and warn pilots from flying in the area . Skywings Paragliding Club has been trying to develop formal agreements with the Municipality for over 2 years so that our sign boards and rules and be put in place for everyones safety and information . We have a meeting recently with Mossel Bay Municipality and they have given us the application forms for consent use of there land . This will take a few months to process . This is also an expensive outlay for the club as the costs are over R 5000-00 for application and adverts .
Pilots are still flying and have not been harassed for a period now . There are landowner complaints about pilots who are using there lawns as launches . Please all pilots behave we dont want to jeopordize the site .
