Lrenes Posted May 7, 2013 Share Posted May 7, 2013 Good morning everybody, This being my first post I thought I should first introduce myself, so here goes... Since I can remember I always wanted to fly. As a kid my eyes were always looking at the sky. When I was a student in the early '90s I started paragliding since that seemed like the cheapest way to get airborne. Did that for a few years, became an instructor and tandem pilot and had a blast winching in Holland and mountain flying in the Alps. Later I was able to start taking flying lessons while working in the USA and over a period of time got my CPL with instrument and seaplane ratings. Done about 1200 hours flying all kinds of planes in the past 10 years or so. Now I am itching to go back to paragliding and to learn paramotoring. I have started to get my skills back and did my first 2 flights winching in Holland this weekend. Felt really great!!! I'll have the possibility to do more winching in Holland and a bit of mountain flying in France during the next months. In September I'll hopefully start my paramotor training in Sweden. I have been reading through a lot of posts on this forum, and learned a lot. You all seem to be a great bunch and very helpful! So I hope you don't mind me asking a couple of questions every once in a while... First one: is it possible to have one wing both for paragliding and paramotoring? I'm expecting to buy gear in the near future and if at all possible I'd rather spend more money on a good paramotor than on having to buy two wings. I am not looking for any competition paragliding, or other hardcore stuff. Would the Paramania GTX fit the bill? I'm about 75 kg... I'd appreciate your comments! Thanks, Lawrence Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
