Hi all, I'm new to the area and have 35ish PPG flights (maybe 10ish hours) under my belt from an APPI PPG school environment (Almost completed my advanced pilot training). I'm currently looking at getting my own kit; meeting fellow pilots in Kent; and after recommendations on flying sites. Kit wise, some items have been recommended to me but to get it all new is expensive. I don't yet feel like I have the experience/confidence to buy second hand kit but I'm open to it. Hope to hear from some local experienced flyers and beginners like myself. All the best, Ed
Hi guys. I've been on here reading posts for about a month now and figured it's about time to introduce myself. My names Goldy and I'm a 37 yo male from MN USA. We don't really have a forum as active as this one here in the US and I've grown to love this one over the past month. Anyway, I've been paramotoring now for about 6 yrs. I started out with flight junkies here in Ohio which offers free training with equipment purchase. Big mistake. I got taken on used equipment and got very poor training which cost me big time. I started with an edel power atlas and fresh breeze monster paramotor. I quickly grew tired of trying to foot launch a motor that big and bought trike. I enjoyed my trike but my dream was to foot launch, so I got real training and a wing upgrade to apco thrust III. What a difference. Since then, I've now gotten a miniplane and l fly the latest apco thrust IV. I absolutely love my set up now. I'm a heavier guy at approx 200 lbs on my miniplane, but with the 125 prop and at 1100 ft ABSL, the miniplane has no problem with my weight. Even in nil wind. It's completely made this sport so much more enjoyable. I live for this. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. Goldy
