The first Paragliding -Speedflying Descent off Low Peak Aoraki Mt Cook

Paul Aubrey just dropped around to show me the rig he used to fly off the Low Peak on Aoraki back in 1985 … The Canopy is called a Paraporter and hadn't been out of the reversable pack / harness for 20 years!

Took a bit to get it airborne (ground handling) but once up it felt really kewl.

The image of Paul flying away is great – you can't see his face, but from his body language it must be pretty epic!

I'm wondering if we should try and fly it ……
