LEARN TO FLY
Paramotor Training Course
Our training course features a fully-immersed, comprehensive experience with an efficient timespan. Training instructors are dedicated to giving you the skills you need to safely begin paragliding with paramotor equipment.
Paramotor Basic Training (PBT) Overview
Paramotor Basic Training brings small groups together and provides all the essential fundamentals to learn paramotoring in an effective, condensed format so you can learn to fly quickly.
Glider control is essential and fundamental to learning to fly, so our courses focus on training you to be in control at all times and be totally aware of what the glider is doing. Training includes a multitude of ground handling drills and several hours practicing with the glider in varying wind speeds: no wind, low wind, and high wind. Paragliding or “free flight” drills will help complete your glider control experience — these drills may vary from a short hop off a dune to ridge soaring, when conditions allow. Bringing it all together with instructional tandem paramotor flights and “ground drills” with the paramotor on your back will prepare you to execute a safe supervised solo by days 5 & 6 and then you start tackling in-flight skills training.
Paramotor Basic Training classes are small – maximum of three students. There are nine training days total, and the cost of the course is $1800. Each student is responsible for finding local accommodations and transportation to class, and we take care of everything else! We provide all training gear and study materials—all you have to do is show up with a great attitude.
