Polar Bear Flight

Annual Polar Bear Flight: Pilot Michael Mixer joined four other pilots of the Discover Powered Paragliding Club for their Annual Polar Bear Flight that takes place every New Year’s Day morning. Each pilot braved the cold weather and was challenged to fly for a least 1 minute for each degree of temperature. This year the morning temperature was 22 degrees at the club’s’ airstrip located northeast of Quincy, IL and each pilot successfully flew the required 22 minutes.
