In addition, please be aware that there are some people who are using this sport, as with many others, to gain attention.  They are false professionals who are advertising themselves as knowledgeable and experienced in the paramotor sport.  They also offer training, and talk down about the gear that has been proven to be the safest on the market.  They don’t have the best interest of the sport in mind, they have their own personal agenda.  Please ask lots of questions!  Ask us, ask people who have flown a paramotor, ask those who have taken various training courses.  If you chose to buy a paramotor or a paraglider, make sure that the package you create is tailored to you and your needs.  Factors such as weight,  experience and goals play a major role in chosing your equipment.  Make smart choices and get the proper safety gear.  Don’t forget a backup chute!  Chances aere, with the proper training you will never need one, but why take the chance?  Ask, ask, ask.  Call us at (800) 707-2525 or e-mail us at ppghero@gmail.com.  Also, you can check out www.wppga.org for more information.
