Mark Pugh Posted October 16, 2017 Share Posted October 16, 2017 Hi All, new member hoping to learn to fly paramotors VERY soon..... I have the whole of October 2017 off work, to cross-over from paragliding (375 hours, Advanced rating) to paramotoring. Keen to learn with either of two local schools, but "paramotortraining.com" with Simon near Swindon is the closest and probably has the better set-up for wind direction and dry ground! When is the weather going to improve???? Really thought that a whole month would give me the two days necessary to convert. But already we are half way through! Decided to go the paramotor route because I live miles from any hills near Stratford-on-Avon; I used to have my own winch but there are too many height restrictions over my local fields to thermal up higher, due to Birmingham Airport and that is unlikely to close down any time soon.... As long as I stay below 1300m's I can travel in most directions except north!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
