Flying my Paramotor at Sunset, with a Full Moon…

Last Friday I did a little Paramotor flight with a few of my Paramotor friends: Michel, Isabelle and Mariusz.

It was a little chilly, but the scenery was amazing. We were flying over the east end of Orleans – to the east of Ottawa. We took off and flew to Petrie Island beach and waved  to the locals that were out there. We also did some low-flying over the corn.  The sunset was gorgeous over the Ottawa River and the city in the background. And there was also a full moon rising right before sunset…

Funny thing is that I’ve lived a big part of my life in this east part of town and never realized just how gorgeous it is by the river. To see it from the air on a day like that is just magical.  Most people never get to see it from that perspective.  So here you go, I’m including a little video of the flight so you Orleans people can see what you are missing! Watch it in HD and full screen!
