Parajet Flying boat! ( I have only ever seen this hanging from the celling of the Parajet workshop.


Recommended Posts

When I saw the title I imagined a paramotor on floating device and a paraglider high up in a fishing rod to launch without having it in the water. This was definitely not what I expected :D

Btw, I want a paraglider with inflation like the kite surfers have :)

Now that looks really unstable! Looks like it can't actually fly and relies on the ground effect to stay airbourne. Every time it lifts a little higher, it then drops back. Amazing machine though!

I'd like to see someone try water skiing with a paramotor!!!!!

Correct!  Just like the Caspian Sea Monster;
