C’est quoi ça ? / VLOG PARAMOTEUR 2

it’s a dayak who did that… Almost an hectar he cut down the trees …. so that’s
important to gain attitude to avoid being shot by poachers… don’t put your hands together when you run .. it’s always sport to take offs at Kalaweit I’m going to get a little higher, because
the field is very short in fact … so I have to have a perfect glider from the very start (without wind !) so I take a little altitude before doing the first patrol above the Kalaweit Pararawen reserve so this is my second flight since
i did some mechanic you remember I had flown from
town during my first flight gain altitude this is the first
safety rules altitude so why go higher
For safety reasons first the higher we are the more we have a reactivity time in case of engine failure for example
it allows to see the alternatives to make an emergency landing, but also it’s important it helps to avoid getting shot
by poachers because it is unfortunately also a reality therefore it is important to gain altitude to avoiod being shot .. here … there I started the patrol
above the Kalaweit Pararawen reserve all that is left
it’s Kalaweit Pararawen there
I am going to the gold mine to see if there are guys working there the gold mine which is to the west of the reserve. in front of me the gold mine you know
is that we are trying to buy to put an end to this
mining which is completely illegal and gold miners obviously reject mercury in the environment,
we bought the land until really the border of the mine,
there are people who work I see a tent there are guys working ah … in the blue tent there is no one ah yes there is someone
who down you see near the hole which is quite recent,
the crater thing I will take attitude and I will show you. there is a roof a jail, near the sieve … they still work at the gold mine, and you see the polluted water … it doesn’t make you want to swim there. i continue to take a little
altitude to go above the forest
we got information like there is plantation near by the reserve I have to go see. It belongs to the villager. the gold mine is enormous .. It’s a little scary … so now I’m heading to the Reserve there i am in the limit
west of the reserve and I’m headed to the south
what you see see this is the Kalaweit reserve land that we already bought
thanks to your support with some gibbons, proboscys monkey, you know all that obviously I’m heading to the southern limit because
guys told me there is a new plantation there a dayak plantations, I think it’s in front of me. i see some smoke i think it’s over there see what it is … does
it’s really a traditional plantation or is it something else? is that
that it is well outside the Reserve…
or not that’s all for sure, in front of me and on the left, all of that is the Kalaweit reserve. in the background there is the city of Muara Teweh if I speak to you “security”, the altitude yes to avoid get shot by
poachers but when i talk to you about security
it’s also I have a satellite phone with me in case of trouble… I have a
climbing harness always on me, with a
3 meters rope, if I ever landed in a tree, to be able to secure myself
to a branch waiting for help and then
obviously i have a rescue parachute who to my right …
which is right there the first thing i actually do
when i take off it’s taking away security because it
there is security so that it does not sets off
during the take off actually there it is well installed and it is ready to use so the here in front of me we see the plantation
over burn so it’s a rice field
the difference of dayaks with the people of Java for example they make
rice fields but who are not flooded
so it’s rice fields on slash and burn and beware of the term “burned” because we often hear in the media palm oil plantations doing it.. these two completely different things, the
palm oil companies go burn the forest to go faster
and convert the forest in
plantations Dayaks cut the trees in an area where he probably already did
20 years ago (and less than 1 hectar) they cut the trees at the rain season waited about 4 to 5 months for
all that dries and then burned the branches
as you actually see it has used fire to fertilize so I’m going
take a ride to show you, so we will have the plantation
in front of us so here he used fire to fertilize his land,
but it was a controlled fire, it didn’t burn the forest at all they burned the branches and again they make it a form
of cycles and the 15, 20 years they return to the same plots
so you must absolutely not say that it is the dayaks who destroy the
forest by burning the forest it’s not true so this is what’s called the
slash-and-burn cultivation, fertilize the soil by burning what’s on it,
and then here it is traditional and there is another one further on, so
the good news is that two plantations are actually
off the reserve and it is indeed traditional plantations they are green because the rice
in fact has already grown well the plantation is next to a very beautiful forest but as you can see the planting was done where there is
fairly low vegetation which shows that it was an area of
secondary forest already cut 15/20 years ago
there is a small house you see the dayaks live in this hut to protect rice in particular from
pigs and all the other animals that
could come and eat the rice this is a very beautiful forest. but it does not yet belong to Kalaweit,
you noticed i said “not yet” we’re going to turn around we will go back to the plantation like that it’s also a way to mark my
presence like that people in the plantation
see that Kalaweit patrols if they ever come to be a little too ambitious with their plantations they see that it’s
quickly spotted and then I can send the ground team with the horses,
control all of that but really there is no worry , these people
know Kalaweit it’s always good to show off I will pass over the plantation
again and then i will re-enter the reserve
Kalaweit from the south so it’s a very nice late afternoon we were talking about security earlier
you can fly a paramotor only in the evening or in the morning
to avoid turbulences turbulences, because it is less hot
and the heat is a important parameter when flying paramotor still above the Kalaweit reserve. and it is a beautiful forest which
regenerates, forest mosaic primary and secondary, see the
more monotonous areas of slightly lower vegetation,
it is the traditional rubber plantations. the rest of it is original vegetation I’m trying to contact the camp, they can’t hear me, it’s weird, I’m not very far I still have some
settings to be made on the machine and on the chassis, the position is too straight I’m having trouble gaining altitude so there are still adjustments to be made
but you see there in 15 minutes I am able to have a global idea
of the Kalaweit pararawen reserve, more than 300 hectares I know there are no cuts
illegal, it would be like a nose in middle of the fac,
and I know the plantations are actually out of Kalaweit and that’s just two rice plantations nothing else and then you know
in 2020 we are going to train three other pilots
and we will have another paramotor to fly even more often,
to be even more efficient the smoke over there is the smoke from the camp and then we’ll take a little tour to the
village… we go to the village of Pendreh we are going to say hello I went around the reserve
in a few minutes you see the efficiency of the paramotor, and what’s great
compared to drones, because we’re in the air in fact we can take initiatives according to what we see
it really is what we see that determines our flight plan, and that is important see on my left
it’s a huge coal barge which is empty, I will have the opportunity in others
flights to show you coal barges filled there it is the coal which is intended for the
China dirty energy … there it is empty, they are full when they
come back down river obviously the village of pendreh that I have already presented to you we come from behind
it’s always important during patrols to pass over the villages,
take a ride above often when i meet people they tell me “so when do you will fly above our village ”
that’s it marks our presence … People know that we continue to protect the the forest
and then it made me happy … you imagine there are not many paramotors in borneo on the right the cemetery we will pass over the small river, the pendreh river. that’s why the village is called
Pendreh my propeller plane is too vertical,
so it’s hard for me to gain altitude i will settle that little control of my parachute so hello to the villagers
so I’m not going down because…
here for security reasons, it is better keep your altitude but I already see that people are looking up at me,
there are motorcycle that stop if there is an engine failure there would be
still the beach but the problem with the beach is that there are cables that go to floating houses this is to be avoided however there is
the other side anyway the small village of pendreh,
and the red building it’s school
and besides there are people who are playing volleyball come on … let’s go home I’m not doing a complete U-turn
so i don’t feel the turbulences of my propeller. there is still a big cloud over there I asked Andrew who is over there
wind direction because the field is very short
I have to make sure there is not too much downwind otherwise I
can’t land you saw there is only one aproack in fact since on 3 sides, there are big trees
I have to make sure to land with almost no wind there on my right another little
rice field once again the dayaks are absolutely not doing flooding rice fields in
terraces like in Java or Bali. there in front of me
the beautiful state reserve from Pararawen that we will patrol later. in the middle of the river the speed boat is
ready OK then Patrol over the reserve of Kalaweit pararawen hello to the villagers of pendreh even if i stayed at an reasonable attitude now i’m heading to the camp and i will try a different approach, losing altitude in front of the field
in case of engine failure we must trains to be closer to the
field that over the river on my left there is an old plantation which is no longer active … bordering the reserve nothing happens, so, it’s OK i’m heading vertically
of camp then lose altitude I try to keep some engine power for
security, but there I have to lose altitude to make a
short approach so it’s a little training
always for safety above all right turn one on the left … right turn yeah it was not a great approach … but hey it does it anyway Obviously I have to do
my approach makes it as little as possible on the water this is extremely important
to assume that I can land with the engine off, without taking
risk, i.e. without going over the river
so here is reserve of pararawen ok, not concern the rice fields are good
outside the reserve, and then small hello to the village of Pendreh… See you ! subscribe to this channel

  2. C'est vraiment merveilleux de te suivre et d'avoir de bonnes nouvelles …Tu es fantastique !! merci encore et toujours pour tes partages de vidéos fabuleuses…Vive cette belle vue de là-haut !
    . RAMAH, Myriam

  3. Merci Chanee, de nous emmener avec toi , pour survoler la réserve et les environs , quel super moyen de surveillance en 15 mns tu as pu faire le tour de la réserve , survoler la mine d’or et pouvoir contrôler si il y a du monde qui travaille , si il y a des coupes de bois sauvage en forêt et .. dire bonjour au gens du village ! Merci aussi pour toutes tes explications sur ton paramoteur , tu es un expert en vol , car pas évident à conduire ! Bonne nouvelle aussi que tu puisses avoir un second paramoteur , avec 2 autres pilotes que tu auras formé , la surveillance n’en sera que mieux

  4. Un grand merci pour ce magnifique reportage qui permet de découvrir votre travail. Vous nous faites partager ce qui vous tient tant à coeur alors encore un grand merci.

  5. Merci Chanee de cette super belle visite en hauteur, un super vol c'est très beau, je vois que vous avez de plus en plus de forêts çà fait plaisir.

  6. Grâce au paramoteur on voit le bon et surtout le moins bon; les mines des orpailleurs, les plantations sur brulis, les braconniers…Personnellement, je trouve un peu génant que les Dayaks s'adonnent à la culture sur brulis car j'imaginais les Dayaks comme un peuple proche de la Nature. Mais, tous les dayaks ne sont pas sensibilisés pareil que ceux de Kalaweit qui dédient vraiment leur vie à la sauvegarde des animaux..Je sais bien que ce ne sont pas des super destructeurs…

  7. Merci Chanee pou ses bonnes nouvelles. C’est tellement agréable. Depuis le temps, j’ai l’impression que l’on fait partie de la même famille et que je revoie des nouvelles de mon cousin d’Indonésie 😂😃 Par contre 5 interruptions de pubs pendant ta vidéo sur YouTube c’est pas cool…. bon courage . Nathalie

  8. Woaw, j'ai fait un peu de paramoteur en Belgique, quelle impression merveilleuse ça doit être de survoler ce petit paradis ! Pas trop de contraintes au niveau administratif pour voler avec cet engin ? Merci pour ce chouette reportage !
