Paul Hamilton of Adventure Productions has produce a visual experience of amazing flights enhanced by the spirit of Native Indian legends, in the award winning video, "Monumental Triking, Ultralight Powered Hang Gliding in Monument Valley". "Viewing this sacred land from the air like a bird to capture spectacular images of ultralight flying in one of the most amazing places on this earth, was a thrill," says Paul Hamilton. "With a great soundtrack inspired by Native Indian legends and positive images of flying technique, I want to entertain and inspire pilots."
Filmed mostly in Monument Valley, on the border of Arizona and Utah in the USA, it features the most scenic and unique views anyone has ever seen of Monument Valley. Hot dogging down the highway at high speeds for a side trip to Lake Powell, with a brief excursion to Hawaii (home to Gerry Charlebois) is thrown in for good measure.
While filming the "Starting Triking" video, Paul got a phone call from Hang Gliding friend, Gerry Charlebois, with an invitation to join him and student pilot, Andy Doughty, for a week of trike flying in Monument Valley. "I have been waiting to film with Gerry for years, so of course the answer was, Yes", said Paul, "Gerry knows how to set up great angles for filming and is an awesome pilot." Gerry Charlebois runs the very successful "Birds in Paradise" school in Hawaii, providing scenic discovery lessons. Gerry is also a highly acclaimed photographer, shooting more cover shots and photos for ultralight aviation magazines than anyone in the world and a stunt man for major TV and movie production companies. Gerry transformed student pilot, Andy Doughty, from a general aviation pilot to an accomplished trike pilot, who "flew like a bird" during filming.
