Visiting pilot wanting to flying in Tillamook area
Discover Paragliding!: His name is Silvan, from Switzerland, and is currently in Garibaldi. He is hoping to get some airtime at Sollie either today or tomorrow. 250 mountain flights in Switzerland, so he's probably qualified... :-) He'll be in the neighborhood for the next couple days. Give him a ring at: 415-819-2358

Tiger flight monday
Steve Forslund:  Took the 2:30 Tiger shuttle on Monday as the forecast looked nice. Climbing out over launch I had a juvenile Bald come over and join my thermal.
