About Us



Get into the air with confidence!

Paramotor flight is the most affordable form of power aviation, and among the most pure way to fly like a bird.

All of our training courses focus on developing a mix of practical skills and theoretical knowledge. There is a lot more than simply practical skill involved in being a paramotor pilot.

The beginner course includes about 20 hours of ground school covering regulations, airspace, weather, motor maintenance, glider design, safety, and first flights. Out on the field, you are brought through a building blocks system starting with a tandem flight, controlling the glider, motor simulation, lean backs, glider towing, and taxi practice all leading up to first pilot solo flights.

We have multiple training options including both foot launch and trike training, beginner to intermediate training, and multiple scheduling options to best suit your needs.
