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?

A paramotor are an ultra light aircraft that is taking the extreme sporting venue by storm.  They have numerous safety features, are durable, and extremely enjoyable to fly.   It is so compact that it will fit in the trunk of your car, and can be set up and have you airborne within minutes.  They are simple enough to control yet have an insane amount of strength and power which really gives it a competitive edge in performance. With no license required, flying really has never been easier.

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.

Paramania Fusion vs. Antea 2 vs. Ozone Speedster

Paramotor comparison Paramania Fusion vs Ozone Speedster vs Antea 2 from Sky Paragliders. Powered paragliding review side by side test. In this comparison the Antea 2 from Sky Paragliders blazed on by the Paramania Fusion and was a bit faster than the Ozone Speedster. Numerous deaths have occured on "reflex" gliders as they are known and because of piles of money spent in marketing on these uncertified wings most people don't know what they are really getting compared to other wings as they don't have much data to go on. All 3 gliders in this comparison are EN-C certified at trim speed and marketed as EN-C gliders. The Paramania Fusion and Ozone Speedster though which are called "reflex" wings cannot pass any level of certification in "reflex" mode. Most people don't realize the huge loss of safety by flying these uncertified wings and even fewer realize they can get a fully certified wing like the Antea 2 which can indeed be fully accelerated in it's certified configuration and since it also out performs the less safe wings it makes no sense at all to sacrifice safety. This is no small difference. When a reflex glider collapses the results are so violent that numerous people have died. Even one safety test pilot trying to conduct very basic safety tests in a controlled enviroment died after the Dudek Nucleon glider collapse and went into such a violent spin that the pilot loss conscieness. Any certified glider would have almost for sure recovered on its own but "reflex" gliders are our worst nightmare because they CAN'T pass any of those life saving certifications. So the pilot died after the glider never recovered. What's worse that is often when they collapse the pilot has zero control to either prevent the collapse or help the glider recover where a good certified glider keeps the pilot in full control and even in a collapse the pilot often has full control with which to drastically improve the outcome of the scenario. Now if people realized that certified gliders often have much better performance as well like you see in this video it would be an easy choice to stay away from the uncertified "reflex" wings.



Sadly the pilot flying the Paramania Fusion in this very video only days later took a collapse, the glider reacted exactly like you see in the video and he tumbled all the way to the ground and hit upside down and was unconscious for an hour and forty five minutes. It is miracle he lived to tell the tale. He reportedly ordered 3 certified gliders immediately following that incident.
