Upcoming Events

Dear Pilots

Hope the winter season has been going well for you all but its time to start thinking about Spring. We at Muller Windsports are getting ready for the upcoming season and of course that means time for the annual Reserve Clinic and the Instructors Course. 

Also if you were planning on getting your glider checked over then now is the time either contact John or Keith.

The teaching season will start again in early April with courses in both Paragliding and Hang Gliding.

The first thing to start the season will be the Reserve Clinic. This Clinic is for all Pilots with equipment or without. We run this clinic as a way for the pilots to get together and go over their equipment before the season starts and to make sure they understand the proper uses. Each pilot will have the opportunity to hang from the simulator with their equipment and go through the steps of a reserve deployment. All successful attempts will then be repacked back into the harness to hopefully not been seen again till the next clinic. With the pilots that have some difficulties we will quickly repack or make changes so a proper deployment sequence can be met. This clinic over the years has solved many issues for the pilots involved but we have also noticed fewer and fewer issues with equipment as the years have gone on. So lets keep on top of our equipment so any emergency can be dealt with correctly

John and Keith will also run a presentation to discuss the equipment involved and answer questions. Only the pilots who have attended the course before can practice before the presentation. 

New Location
Where: Terre Des Jeunes - 3720 42st NW its a school exactly once block east of MarketMall
When: March 12th/2016 at 9am ( presentation at 10:30 )
Who: Pilots with their own equipment and anyone wanting to purchase equipment we will have reserves on hand for you to practice as well
Cost: 50$ cash includes Pizza Lunch

PLEASE RSVP Vincene at fly@mullerwindsports.com if you are attending the clinic


The next event will be the Annual Muller Windsports Instructors Clinic will be coming up March

The Willi 2015

For those advanced students interested in this years Willi. If you have more questions please ask Vincene or Keith


If you are already signed up - great and thanks! If not, a gentle reminder that we're just 13 days away from the June 15 deadline for early registration. You can save yourself $20 by registering and paying early. And, more important, you'll have one of the just 100 spots available and be entered in the Early Registration draw for dinner while you're in Golden.

Here are just a few other enticements as finalized at our big team meeting last night...

  • The Muller BBQ will happen Saturday evening, July 25, featuring homemade sausage (thanks Glen) and kegs of "Rutting Elk Red" (thanks Vincene, John, Dale and Randy).
  • The Pilot Bags for each competitor are logoed this year and look great. They will be stuffed with the famous Willi Buff, all kinds of helpful items, and the inevitable paper work to keep you out of the doghouse with the organizers and landowners.
  • Our sponsors are really winding up, so you can expect Morning Meeting and Dinner Raffle prizes that include a hiking harness, varios, wind meters, T-shirts, gift certificates, etc.
  • The Breakfast Ladies are raring to go with even nicer breakfasts, a lunch bag program, and the big buffet to end it all off.
  • Many ways to win, with the new "Super Sledder" Award (most landings at the LZ) joining returning favorites the "Willi Make It" (you don't want to win this one) and "Spot, Spot, Where's the F****G Spot".

All this, and the best flying you will do all year. What's the hold up - sign up! 56 pilots already have.
