An older, kinda heavy, Grandpa with an Attitude for Altitude :)


Recommended Posts

Hey fellas, I just found this awesome, people friendly website on Paramotoring.  I am stoked by the sport but have a couple of questions that I would be so grateful if you could field.  First, I'm an older guy with two many pounds on board.  That being said is it conceivable for a guy with a twenty year old attitude to conquer this sport and do so weighing in at a cool 240 pounds.  I'm a former skydiver from years gone by and have that kinda attitude plus I have plenty of cash, so to speak, to get into the sport.  :)  Guys, do you know anybody that is 64 and would be a newby that gets into the sport.  I am ever so grateful for the kind directions from you guys and gals.  Major Blessings to you from Oklahoma!!!!!!!!!  :):):)

We are teaching a 79 year old at the moment (a couple of them in fact :-) ) 240Lb is not actually that much at all!!! (That's only 104 KG to us lot) 

If you can dream it, you can do it!! :-) 

Welcome to the Paramotor Club!
