Herne Bay Site???

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Am going to Herne Bay at the weekend does anyone know of any site in or close to this area thats suitable for flying from???

I am aware of the sand martins nesting area's to the east of the town and plan to stay well clear so was looking for a suitable field or area west of the town 

or inland a bit.

As am not from the area i would appreciate all the help i can get to avoid any sensitive area's 



Ps:  just so you know that am not some  random nutter anyone who went to this year's PMC flyin  would have flow from our local site that the event was held on and am a member of the 

M.A.D. Paramotoring  Team

Hello all

I'm new to this forum/club and not exactly sure how it works.
Apologies if I get it wrong.
I'm about to start taking Paramotorclub's and looking for somewhere close to CT15 5JS (Martin Mill, between Deal and Dover) where I could

1. get lessons,

2.fly from, 

3. Get some advice about which equipment to buy: which make, what specifications, and which wing.

I've been offered a Paramotor pap f200 for about £2000, It has approx 20hrs flying bought new in 2013.. Xl harness, reserve parachute ,2 2blade wooden props and a 3 blade carbon propeller as well.
Any comments, observations or advice?

I am a total newbie, so advice much appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Don't buy a Paramotor before you have flown one. 

Annoyingly, there are plenty of people out there happy to sell new (excited and keen) new pilots their old junk. We have seen all sorts on our field that quite honestly the people that sold them are knobs at best! lol 

Just wait it out, use the schools kit for your training and get advice from others (as you are doing here) before buying stuff :-) 

Welcome to the Paramotor Club
