or Powered Paragliding (PPG) is one of the most exhilarating
forms of Ultra Light Airsports existing today.
The first Paramotors were developed in the mid-80s, but
these very basic, noisy machines have progressed amazingly into
the lightweight, high performance machines of today.
Paramotor is basically a sturdy chassis with a small capacity
2 or 4 stroke engine mounted to it, driving a propeller that
is shrouded by a strung cagework with a harness attached. The
Paramotor is strapped to your back and with the use of a Wing
(paraglider) you have one of the easiest and lowest cost methods
of powered flight available.
As the units are foot-launched, they can be flown from any site
with reasonable free space, with no hills, thermals or wind
required for launching or landing.
is a truly unique experience and to feel the buzz
of open air flying is simply breathtaking.
Most Paramotors are designed to easily breakdown into 2 or 4
sections, which means effortless transportation of the whole
unit in the back of the average hatchback car. Paramotors are
fair weather machines and once strapped in, with the engine
running and the Wing inflated above you, only a few steps are
required to leave the ground for the one of the most exciting
rides of your life! The only limitation to duration of flight
is your fuel load and engines can be stopped and re-started
mid-flight and are usually stopped for landing.
of Paramotors are in use worldwide and their easy transportability,
low maintenance and launching flexibility are destined to make
them the first choice for novice or experienced aviators alike.
