Our lead home inspector and owner, Aaron, is a paragliding enthusiast. He took a day off of work this week to volunteer at the nationally sanctioned Chelan XC Open where about 100 pilots take off of Chelan Butte for several days performing “tasks” in a timely fashion. Aerial Paragliding, a Cashmere-based paragliding school, produces the event with the help of numerous sponsors and volunteers. If you were in the area this week you probably noticed 100 small colored dots clustered in the sky. Those were pilots receiving coordinates to complete tasks to their destination. The competitors use SPOT, a messenger tracking device that retrieves coordinates. Once landed the pilots use the device to alert all “followers” that they are safely down and then a volunteer driver picks them up at the given location. Results are in!
