Have fun in a paramotor

Picture yourself in a paramotor or powered paraglider.  You’re hundreds of feet off the ground, climbing to new heights, and free to explore the world around you.  You feel the rush and thrill in the pit of your stomach, sensing that what you are doing is extremely exciting, but knowing that you are safely secured inside your  paramotor.   It is an experience that is unforgettable with edge of your seat excitement.

What is a Paramotor?

The Importance of Paraglider Control in Paramotor Training

Paramotor and training

Paramotor Training in San Diego, Ca.

Paramotor training with the goal of powered paragliding mastery begins with absolute paraglider control.  The key to students graduating from  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.

With WPPGA training, a Paramotor is not dangerous

There have been ZERO paramotor deaths or permanent injuries of WPPGA paramotor training graduates.  There are however, 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.  Thisproves to be a huge problem.  Without developing the proper paragliding skills, students do not have the reflexes to react to situations that can and will arise.  Without trained reflexes you are over 500 times more likely to take a collapse to your paraglider, and reaction times will often be so poor 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.  Training with the WPPGA will ensure that your paraglider experience will be a safe one.

The paramotor and the instructor

A paramotor instructor’s job is not simply to “get you into the air”.  An instructor’s job is to help students progress in their skills 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.

A Paramotor Team

The U-Turn Reflaction paraglider is highly efficient, fast, and allows pilots to maintain full active flying control throughout the trim range.  Even with a huge 28m above his head, the pilot easily passed fellow Flat Top Team Pilot who was overloaded on a 22m Antea 2!

The Antea 2 is a fast glider for a paramotor.  We will have more videos to come on this new glider and plan on testing smaller sizes in the near future. U-Turn has a smaler size- a 26 and may be making an even smaller one- 22m.

If you’re an advanced pilot, this may be your next wing. Give us a call to find out more. We will have more up on the website very soon!

A Paramotor and Paraglider is an important choice so if you need help, we are here for you!

Paraglider Competition! Kiting Wars Begin!

Incredible Paraglider Excitement!

Nucleon Vs. K2, a paraglider competition

Shane and Dell had a  kite war, each using a different paraglider.  Shane entered this war using the Nucleon; and his competition’s paraglider was the K2.  As you can tell from the video, the K2 stayed pressurized for a longer peirod of time than the Nucleon.  Yes, your kite will make a big difference.

The Cima K2  made by Sky, has the amazing abliity to fly slower and faster than the Nuvleon while still keeping all of it’s cerified ratings, whereas the nucleon becomes unrated as the trimmers are released.

In this paraglider war, the K2 is the one to buy!
