Hann__ Posted August 31, 2012 Share Posted August 31, 2012 Newbie alert... I`ve had this itch for a while now - and it won`t go away! Always dreamt of flying just above the countryside at an easy,leisurely pace, and whenever i see a Paramotor i think `i`d love to be doing that`! In fact, i was out walking the dog the other day thinking about PPG`n`all when i heard something over the music in my headphones, pulled them off, turned about and there was one (PPG) flying overhead, and considering how (relatively) rare a sight they are that`s got to be an omen, right? I`m in the Winchester/Salisbury/Andover triangle in Hampshire, but before i pull the trigger and find an instructor in this area what i`d ideally like to do is see some Paramotorists (Paramotoristi?) `doing their thing` taking off etc, to get a feel for it and maybe have a chat to see what it`s all about? If there`s anyone in my location that flies in this area and won`t mind a spectator maybe i could visit one time? An avid motorcyclist so i don`t mind travelling (went to Norway ealier this year) - i go out most weekends to get my two-wheeled `fix` so a ride out to see some PPG action would be a good day out.. The bike thing is a little bit of a concern for me though - i have to be realistic about how much time i could share between two powered `hobbies` - maybe i could build a bike trailer to carry the PPG to my take-off field and combine the two... I will (hopefully) be doing some flying this weekend though - my wife bought me one of those trial flight gift vouchers last Xmas so i`m off to Redlands near Swindon for an hour in a weightshift microlight, if that whets my appetite my PPG career may start sooner rather than later..
