- Powered Paragliding |
Paramotoring is a combination of a paraglider and a power unit. A small 120cc engine drives a propeller with the whole unit strapped to the pilots back as they fly beneath a standard paragliding wing, open to the elements during the flight.
Instructors use a rope attached to a harness to teach students at a maximum altitude of 20ft. The simplicity and low cost are the main attractions of the sport with a paramotor fitting easily into the back of a standard car. Paramotoring is one of the most accessible forms of powered flight with no license required.
