  1. Hello everyone! After looking at all the options for Ultralight aviation it seems that PPG fits my needs best. Ive tried to get in contact with schools ive found through Google, but have had little success. Can you folks help point me in the right direction to get a demo experience/training in the sport? Thank you for your help!
  2. Hi all so just had my first tandem flight, and loved it. Afterwards I told the instructor that I'd love to get the training for the paramotor, he responded and said I shoulI earn to master hanggliding first and get 30-40 jumps in before I start strapping an engine to my back. that makes sense to me... but he also recommended I should then go for the advanced package, aerial stunts and more theory. He of course offers both.... So I'm curious, how did you all start out? What would you recommend? Also, I might be dreaming... but I envision myself getting a paramo
  3. Hi all, I am looking to start training in Norfolk/the North side of Suffolk. I have seen Ufly4fun in Lincolnshire but it's a bit far unfortuantly (3 hour round trip). Does anyone know of any instructors in the area mentioned? I have some aviation experience in sailplanes and have simply tried paragliding, but not paramotors and I would be very interested in learning. Thank you for the help!
  4. I was so inspired by the training blogs that I decided to start one of my own. Not to get too far off topic I feel it might be worth giving a little of the history that led me here. I went on a 5 day glider course when I was 21 and loved it. Sadly I didn't have the financial ability to keep up with it and so let it go. Fast forward 25 years and my son is an air cadet, flying every weekend and well on the way to his solo flight. After one year is is ready to go on the solo course but its too late in the season. Year two the cadets decide he cant go solo because they have increased the
  5. Hello all, Another one from the west of Scotland (Oban) looking to get in to Paramotor early next year after wanting to do it for 10+ years I have told my self "just do it". Just stating to look at training and and logistics given my location as you know trainers few and far between in Scotland. I have plenty of family around Doncaster so that could be an option to spend a few weeks down there and travel back and forth if there are any local trainers that are recommended, or i could travel further south although times i could travel down may be more limited (my job is pretty flammabl
  6. Hi. I live in Kettering and looking to get some training to get in the sky. A trial lesson or something similar would be good. Don't want to travel far so someone local if possible. Look forward to hearing from someone.
  7. I've heard of FuSTICS, MACE & WHIP, specific to PPGs, and the general aviation IMSAFE. Anyone else have a good mnemonic to check-over yourself & gear before flying? Newbie PPG student
  8. Hi all, Am about to turn 40...so it's time to do something about my dreams...! Can anyone recommend any training within say 90min drive of West London (Membury aside ). Thereafter, where do people fly from? All the Heathrow slots are gone... Many thanks for all and any help, thoughts, etc!
  9. Here we go. My brother and me started our venture to become paramotor pilots about a year ago, yes the title of this post is "Let The Training Begin", allow me to explain. We first found out about paramotoring because a certain video was trending, yes the well known Tucker Gott flying to McDonald's video. Some may roll their eyes at this others a nod in Tuckers direction regardless, I was inspired, what wasn't to love? Take off from your local park, grab a bite to eat and then fly home. From that point I've obsessively watched videos from various sources on YouTube and read a hell of a lot of
  10. Hi Guys, I'm brand new to this forum having only just discovered the amazing form of flight that is Paramotoring! I've always had a drive to get in the air, but have always found the expense to be too much, whether in training costs, vehicle costs, or hangarage. Paramotoring is definitely proving to be the right path for me, affordable, fun, and a strong community in an emerging sport. I have been reading online, and to be honest the information surrounding training is a little vague. Some courses endorse BHPA, others APPI, however it says in most places that this is not
  11. Firstly, I would like to say thank you to Francis who is the person that has made this exciting news possible. As you mat have heard, the UK CAA have now agreed to issue an exemption to anyone who can provide a GP's letter stating clearly that you should not continue with foot launched paramotoring for whatever the reason is. Bad Back, Disability and so on... The process is a simple one and only requires that you send: Doctors letter, a description of the modification, and a statement to say that it still meets the SPHG definition (sub 70kg). The trike must be one with a deta
  12. Is there training this weekend 14th and 15th at Membury as always subject to weather?
  13. Hi All I have been thinking of learning to paramotor for years and determined to try this year! I have a few questions for the forum 1)I am currently 18st and hope to lose some weight soon.(again been saying this for years too! ). I have seen that this is not overerweight if using a larger wing. Does it make learning harder if using a larger wing? 2)Any idea where the closest club is to Bicester Oxfordshire? Hopefully when trained I can fly from the local gliding centre across the road (Windrushers) 3) Any idea how much training costs and duration? 4) What is the
  14. Hello all. I’m currently booked in for a first day training at Airways Airsports, also been in contact with active edge on the Yorkshire Dales. Quite a trek To both places as there seems to be no schools in Lancashire ! Can anyone recommend the above ? Cheers !
  15. Hello errrbody. I ordered my stuff (geeze how come ppg equipment doesn't just magically materialize at my doorstep? JUST TAKE MY MONEY NOW!!! ). I'm all excited. Now, any pointers to a new guy, pre-training, on what you know now that you didn't know that you didn't know before getting into ppg? For example, "If I had only known [insert obvious "thing" any experienced pilot would be fully aware of here], my experience level would have graduated SOOO much quicker." Thanks in advance.
  16. Hi, i'm new to the sport but would really like to get stuck in. I'm trying to find a place where i could get paramotor training nearby to York and some advice on getting started. I haven't really done any "para" related sports other than a tandem paragliding session with active edge but i would really appreciate some pointer.
  17. Hi! I've just joined the site, mainly as a lurker to find out more about paramotoring! Having just moved to Kent, I'll need to wait until I have some more money for training and equipment before I take the plunge. Just wondered if anyone has any experience learning abroad? It seems to be a lot cheaper than learning in the UK and I guess the weather is more reliable, i.e. in Spain. Also, is there anyone in the South East who's agreeable to meeting up for a chat / observe you fly please? Thanks in advance!
  18. Just completed my first days paramotor training with Simon and Colin at Membury. A steep learning curve but progress was made. Special thanks to Colin who has the patience of a saint in teaching a newcomer like me to this sport. Looking forward to the next day. Thankyou Sandy
  19. It’s been 5 weeks since i had my first lesson in Paramotoring. Since then there have been a few variables that have led to such a long absence from the airfield: Weather Family life Work Other hobbies The main cause out has been the weather. I have a bit of a better understanding of the weather requirements now so now i look for a good wind - Average of <10mph and gusts under 15mph. That’s about my limit. The night of my 1st session, i ordered what has now become a bible and regular bedtime read - ‘Paramotoring from the gr

    The start

    the first stages For me learning to fly was always something I had wanted to do, but I never had the money or brains (so I thought) to do it. During my twenties and thirties I dabbled in a number of sports from climbing in my younger years then progressing on to mountaineering as my skills progressed and later moving into the caving and windsurfing scenes. Then, as the grey hairs inevitably muscled there way through and the 'dad bod' started to form it was time to find a new hobby. For me the logical step was to look back into flying. The start for everything now is the I
