12/10/2017 - Club AGM followed by speaker Joe Innes
Location: The Compass, Tormarton, Glos GL9 1JB 7.30pm
Free buffet, AGM and guest speaker Joe Innes
For our speaker, we have Joe Innes, now a world class speed flying pilot, Joe had a questionable start to the sport, teaching himself mostly off youtube! He instantly fell in love with flight and moved to Chamonix, France, to an off-grid wooden shack where he lived for 2 years with the sole purpose of flying as much as possible. ‘Lucky to survive’ doesn’t quite cut it for the start of his flying career (as you will see!) but after the loss of several close friends in BASE jumping accidents, he re-evaluated his approach to the sport and is now one of the top speed fliers in the world (and has his CP). Come along to find out more about progression in the sport and see his incredible footage from recent trips to Romania and Norway this summer on his search to find, new, unflown lines.
It will also be the AGM so come along to support the club, eat free food and get sweaty palms watching Joe fly!
