Introducing Mathieu Gratton, host of the popular Montreal-based TV show Le Banc d’Essai du Peuple” or Taking it to the People

Mathieu Gratton with Skyaak in Montreal

Click on Mathieu to view the TV feed from the recent feature on Skyaak, where he takes it to the streets of Montreal.

Just scroll down about a third of a page from where you land and you will see the thumbnail for the Skyaak video.

Received the DVD today in the mail from the producers of the show. They sent along a request that I not replicate the DVD in any way. I found the link to the Skyaak segment on their website with a link provided. So it’s all good. I can share the video with you now through their link.

My grasp of the french language is a tad spotty, anyone who can help me out with some translation would be greatly appreciated.

Judging by the ‘body language’ and overall enthusiasm here, I would wager a guess that Skyaak was quite well-received on the cosmopolitan streets of Montreal.

It’s worth clicking through to watch this. It’s kind of priceless really. Check out how excited the little canine participant is to encounter his very first Skyaak. My spider senses are tingling…could this be a message that we should be looking at R&D into the Skyaak ‘fetch’…?

‘Skyaak Canadian Ring Wing Glider’ Berkeley Campus Debut

Check this short clip out of California.  It was such a rush to see the Skyaak Ultra-Glow experimental prototype flying around in the night skies over Berkely Campus!

The video artist had to say this about his experience:

Here’s a little bit of night flight with my new Skyaak Model 3 with the light kit. Flight is great, but more than that, this thing looks great at night and was surprisingly easy to catch (especially for people that had never thrown a Skyaak before). Distributed by Tubemogul.

Skyaak the Canadian ring-wing glider demonstrates the amazing stability, even at very high air-speeds, of the ring-wing design.

This stability is further enhanced by the natural spinning motion that Skyaak can generate when tossed.

A social activity, throw Skyaak around with your friends. It’s fun!
