Are you looking for excitement? Have you always wanted to feel the air beneath your feet but thought you didn’t have the money? A Powered Paraglider is an inexpensive way for you to fulfill your dream and give you an unobstructed view of the world below. Picture yourself looking down on the rivers and roads below as you fly through the air. A paramotor or powered paraglider can make this dream a reality.
To get started flying your powered paraglider you need to follow 4 steps:
1. Receive Proper Training -
First, you need to find an instructor with lots of flying experience. Don’t go it alone. With proper instruction you can gain critical knowledge that will provide you a piece of mind when you are flying your powered paraglider. An instructor can share their flight knowledge and experience with you in a couple of days that will provide you the best experience. With year round training dates, you can find the training schedule that will best fit your needs.
2. Find the best Paraglider for you -
Choosing the best paraglider (wing) can seem overwhelming? But it doesn’t have to be. Depending on what you goal you are wanting to achieve, some paragliders will be a better fit for your style and body type. Are you wanting to push the limits or just want to take a relaxing flight? How much you weigh, your height, and your experience are all factors in selecting the best paraglider for your situation. To talk to an expert call 1-888-591-2527. More information can also be found at our paragliding page.
3. Choose the best Paramotor for your body type and flying style -
Choosing the best powered paraglider that fits your situation is the next step. Similar to selecting the wing, choosing the best paramotor will help you to experience the most enjoyment from your flight. It isn’t always about the lightest engine, but it may be about the fastest, or the lightest. An expert can help you determine the best paramotor for you budget. To find the right powered paraglider for you, simply call 1-888-591-2527.
4. Soar with the Birds!
Glider control is extremely important in mastering a paraglider. The key to students graduating from the WPPGA training with such incredible paramotoring skills is their complete mastery of glider control. You would not be sent into the air to pilot an airplane without learning the controls first. The same holds true with these aircrafts. You don’t want to learn how to kite your paraglider while having a motor strapped to your back, and you definitely don’t want to learn the proper skills and reflexes of glider control WHILE you are in the air. It is unnecessary and unsafe to do so when you can develop those skills while still on the ground.
Benefits of Glider Control
There have been ZERO deaths or permanent injuries of WPPGA training graduates, yet there are many lists of serious injuries and deaths of paramotorists. The reason for this unfortunate fact is a lack of proper training and flying gear unapproved by the WPPGA. It is extremely common to find paramotor instructors who will throw their students into the air on their first day or two of training. This is a huge problem. Without developing the proper skills students do not have the reflexes to properly react to situations that can and will arise. Without proper reflexes you are over 500 times more likely to take a collapse, and reaction times will often be so bad that those without proper training end up doing the wrong thing at the wrong time, making bad situations even worse. Instructors embodying this method of “training” are rolling the dice with their life and those of their students, and the wrong number comes up over and over again.
Instructors and Glider Control
An instructor’s job is not simply to “get you into the air”. An instructor’s job is to help students progress in their skills with a powered paraglider, and ensure that those skills are mastered before taking flight. If you are not ready, then you do not fly. These are the training methods that should be used by paramotor instructors. ONLY the WPPGA trains their students according to these practices, which is why WPPGA graduates are the ONLY group to have no permanent injuries or deaths. If you get the proper training and fly quality equipment, paramotoring is an extremely fun and extremely safe extreme sport.
Being able to share air with close friends while exploring new places is what its all about. Nothing beats it! Choosing the right paraglider and gear gets you there and back safely. That’s why all of the best paramotor pilots in the USA fly Flat Top Paramotors. Choose the right paraglider and gear the first time and be done with it! Flat Top and k2, the worlds best paramotor and paraglider.
3) Paramotor ( Powered Paraglider) Chose the right paraglider for you, not someone else.
The Dudek Hadron is an uncertified race glider designed for slalom type events. Its not safe for your average pilot and should not be flown by such individuals. If you’re going to fly a glider like this, do not use a paramotor with little to no crumple zone like the nirvana as seen in the vide labeled, “Chose the right paramotor for you, not someone else”.
4) Enjoy Your Flight
Last but not least, get ready to experience the wonder of flight. You are on your way to a series of incredible experiences that few people are able to enjoy. As a developed pilot, you will achieve new skills and maneuvers which will allow you to visit places other people only dream about. You, are Totally Awesome!
