TOW INSTRUCTION & SIV
We have a Jetcraft 18' boat with a 200hp Mercury Optimax jet-drive. On board, we have a SuperTow Hydraulic Payout Winch with 5500' of dyneema line powered by a 15hp Honda engine.
If you do not have any towing experience, then we will give you a solid introduction to the procedure & techniques involved at the beginning of the tour. Initially, it will feel a little odd, but after a few high tows, you will begin to feel comfortable, and learn that there are many ways in which you can improve your ascent rate and help the boat driver put you into the perfect position.
And, if you've not flown for a while, we can also run you through some gentle SIV manoeuvres to get you comfortable under your wing again. It's a great use of time - as you can practice on the way up and on the way down!
We have a number of friendly venues for towing / SIV clinics - 2 vast reservoirs with grass launches & landing areas the size of football fields, or a handful of pristine beaches in Dolphin or Paradise Bay. You couldn't ask for more picturesque and friendly locations.
We also provide safety equipment for all towing and SIV manoeuvres over water, including life vest, line cutter, waterproof radios, & powered safety boat.
Speak to us when booking if you would like to work on any particular element of your flying, whether it's towing technique, b-line stalls or recovery from spins.
