When Is A Licence Required ??

Another newbie style question concerning the legalities....

I know paramotors do not require a licence. I know paragliders do.

What happens when you turn your motor off and free fly for a bit before firing up again?

Are you always a paramotor even if the engine isn't running, or do you become a paraglider as soon as the motor is turned off...

Hi Rob,

You are mistaken, the law is the same for both paragliding and paramotoring. i.e. You do not require a licence for either.

So it does not matter if the engine is running or not. But the air law does change if the engine is running. i.e you would have to give way to non powered aircraft if your engine is running.
