Post training exercises and things to do

Recommended Posts

So, I've completed my training and can confidently get in the air and land without issues.
I've had practice with navigation and have done a couple of XCs. I'm constantly trying to improve my launches in different conditions and working on landing accuracy.

As much as it's enjoyable being up in the air seeing the views and taking in the feeling of flying, I don't want to "waste" my time and not improve.

What suggestions do you all have for things to practice? I'm not talking "big ears" or anything that I should be talking to an instructor about.
I'm looking for suggestions around landing patterns, accuracy, drills to practice in flight, turns with/without power, etc, etc to try and improve my flying and not just "float around"

Landing accuracy takes care of itself... land short and you have to bloody walk to the van!

Engine off landing from +1000ft might be a useful discipline... I keep meaning to do it but I don't like long walks with my gear.
When I say long, I mean anything more than ten meters :)

Not sure where  you trained but Big Ears was a part of my training and is a relatively simple method of losing height (as opposed to B-stalls) Did you do asymetric stalls ? Its another fairly straightforward excercise that gives you confidence in your wings desire to fly

Get the Paramotoring bible and learn the rest of the stuff in there. Active piloting is the biggest thing you need.
