  • Taxi practice where you practice glider control from the trike, as you progress you start controlling only the glider then adding throttle control later
  • Tandem flights with a certified instructor to walk through the launch, flying, and landing differences in a trike
  • Putting it all together from lay out, inflation, taxiing, launch, flying, landing, deflation, and packing the equipment back up. Then doing that enough times that you are confident on your own.

What People Are Saying

  • “Justin and Alexis are great instructors, they explain everything so clearly and have really helped me build my confidence with the paramotor.”

    - Laura Fauss

    Foot Launch Paramotor Pilot, Ohio

  • “Fantastic personalized training. I’m a retired airline pilot and their program was as good or better than any other that I’ve had. I felt totally confident at the completion of training and purchased my own paraglider trike after finishing the course. I know it’s not required to get formal training to fly an ultralight, but this is so worthwhile. Go – get trained – and go fly. You won’t regret it or your training here!”
