dugald Posted August 24, 2010 Share Posted August 24, 2010 (edited) Hi All, I am looking to start paramotoring but as yet have no paragliding / paramotoring experience. As the cost of the equipment and training would stretch our finances quite thin I have had to make various promises and concessions with my wife as I am a serial hobbyist. Basically she wants to fly with me but doesn't want to be at the controls. I thought that as she is only 43kg (she is very small!) that she would be a good person take on a tandem. I am just not sure on how I would get to the point where I could fly a tandem. Should I get good at paramotoring solo first and then move on to tandem? From what little could gather on the internet it sounds like tandem flight adds a lot of complications? Perhaps I should first learn to paraglide tandem? I was also wondering whether it would be possible to buy a wing and motor that would suit me (I am 85kg) for solo flights and then simply change the wing at a later date? If so what power and wing size should I be looking for? Any answers you can offer would be appreciated!
