Thorough training — Your ticket to success in Powered Paragliding
Thorough training is exceedingly important in order for you to build a strong foundation for safe, successful and fun operation of a powered paraglider. While there is legally no instruction requirement to fly an ultralight aircraft such as a paramotor, it is extremely unwise to self-train for a number of reasons.
Our paramotor course is one of the most comprehensive in the United States, with 7 to 10-day intensive classes held in Northern, Central and Southern California 4-5 times a year. These full-immersion courses promote success by keeping your newly-learned skills fresh in your mind, instead of taking 4-5 day breaks between weekend training sessions.
