New Student Dubai/Devon

Recommended Posts

Hello :)

I have just completed my 2nd lesson with Parahub Paramotors at Skydive Dubai so thought it was about time to join some forums... Getting to grips with ground handling; really want to get that nailed before getting my feet off the ground.

Learning PPM in the desert of Dubai, but will mostly be flying in Devon/Cornwall. Any Sou'Westers here?

Looking to get myself a trike in the UK as I have good access to fields. So will be keeping an eye in the classifieds...

Well, thanks all for the warm welcome. o.O

Just about done with the course and already have a Revo2 wing and Volution 2 Paramotor.

Now I just need to spend some time in the UK to actually use it.

So, that leads me to a question - Obviously learning in Dubai is very different to flying in the UK. As I'll be Devon based there are many places nearby that I would quite like to fly at/over etc. Exmoor, coastlines etc. Can I just go fly, or do I need to get permission from somewhere, outside of restricted areas. Who would you call up to get permission to fly 1000ft over Exmoor, for example. Or if I take off from my house and fly the local area do I need to call someone?

I'm not in/around any restrictions on the VFR charts.
