How and when to start


Recommended Posts

Good day all.

I have tampered with the idea of starting paramotor training for some years now but for various reasons (the usual ones of work ect included getting in the way) ...or is that just my own excuse :lol:

So, I've decided to do to it and would welcome some advice on where to go, when to start ect. Any advice welcomed. I live in Stevenage Hertfordshire and obviously the less travelling the better.

I would prefer not to commit to the expense of buying my own kit until I know I'm at least capable of achieving the grade safely.

Thanks in advance :dive:

Hi

The winter as a great time to learn.... Smooth conditions and no problems with thermals in the middle of the day...

Sorry i can't recommend anyone in you neck of the woods..... But there are two ways to go about it.. 1 BHPA 2 PMC... I would personally go with the BHPA.... Not knocking the PMC training syllabus or it's instructors.

Just personal preference. :wink:

Hello mate. I'm up in st Neots and I'm currently training with Simon in Swindon (personal choice). There are other schools in the area (Alconbury & March).

I find the travelling isn't a problem. I just make a day of it. It's the weather that will put the skids on it, especially while you're training. So planning and weather watching becomes a hobby too. Ground handling for me is a biggy, and you can do that with your own wing and a good size field near where you live.

4 flights in and still VERY much learning it's just a great sport to be passionate about.

It's a friendly community full of some great advice and tips.

Don't think about it. Just do it :D
