At the beginning of the week, the weather for this weekend seemed to be getting better. Sadly, we are now at a tipping point and the forecast seems to be worse than expected. After deliberation we have divided the Friday and Saturday in flyable timeslots. Thursday and Sunday are, in our opinion, unfortunately not flyable.
Due to the combination of low clouds cover and windy conditions the committee diseded to cancel the parachute jumps. The helicopter is not able to come to ElseFly Blokzijl this year. This means that all parachute jumps are canceled.
It is expected to be flyable for the paramotors on Friday from 07:00 to 10:00 and from 15:00 to 20:00 (LT). On Saturday, it seems to be flyable from 07:00 to 15:00. We also believe that the times above are flyable for MLA pilots. Also, the winch from EuroFly will be available on friday, saturday and sunday.
We will try to give an update a few times a day. Please keep an eye on our Facebook Page and this website. We hope you will still be visiting ElseFly 2016, as in addition to the flight operations, there are also many activities on the ground for both young and old. Also, the exhibitors with various flight materials will still presenting their goods.
Regardless of the weather we are still going to make ElseFly Blokzijl 2016 a blast!
Para-motors, MLA's, hot air balloons, model airoplane, parachutists, delta- and screenflyers will be coming together to share their connection: the love of flying.
During this event, there is also much to see and experience for anyone who wants to look and taste of these special activities in the air!
