Created for the NorCal Free Flight Film Festival (Jan 2014), this is the extended trailer for the upcoming trilogy continuing the story where We Are Pilots. left off. In We Are Pilots. we were introduced to the women who fly paragliders. We Are Pilots.Two introduces us to XC (cross country) paragliding, competition paragliding, and how one leads to the other.
Featured are the top US women pilots, Kari Castle and Melanie Pfister (with 8 US Womens National Championships between them), along with women representing a wide variety of perspectives on XC and competition – providing both stories of flight and tips for getting started.
Part I “Zero to …” is now online: We Are Pilots.Two – Part I
Thanks to everyone at the NorCal Free Flight V Festival – it was a great show, and I really appreciate receiving the prize (a cool FlyNet 2.0 vario!) for best paragliding film.
Conceived and created by Julie Spiegler, with tons of support and additional footage from the paragliding community.
