In order to paramotor safely you will need to first learn basic paragliding skills. This will include the full BHPA Elementary Pilot course as well as a shortened Club Pilot course (you won’t learn the soaring skills). Your paramotor training will cover two sections; ground school, which covers equipment, weather and theory, then the practical section covering pre-motorized flights, motor unit ground work, and finally powered flight. For a complete beginner the full training usually takes about eight or ten days although you will probably make your first motorised flight on your 4th day. An experienced Club Pilot can do a conversion course in two days. This will give you a BHPA restricted qualification and allow you to fly in the vicinity of your take off point. For the full qualification you’ll need to come back for another two days training which will teach you how to fly cross country.
Having been involved in paramotoring for many years, and having seen the problems associated with poor quality equipment, we only train on Parajet V3, Zenith, or Maverick paramotors. We often have access to exclusive offers from Parajet and can help you with your choice of paramotor.
We run nearly all our courses in conjunction with The Para Lab because they have an outstanding set-up and use only the very latest equiptment.
In terms of wing, we are exclusivly teaching on Sky Zorros. These are reflex wings but with a number of significant safty improvments. Again, we often have acces to exclusive offers.
