  • What is Powered Paragliding?
    Powered paragliding, also known as paramotoring or PPG, is a form of ultralight aviation where the pilot wears a back-pack motor which provides enough thrust to take off using a paraglider. It can be launched in still air, and on level ground, by the pilot alone—no assistance is required
  • How long does training take?
    Training time depends on you. We are a go-your-own-pace program. Training can be completed in as little as 10 days, or as long as it takes. We understand life gets in the way, and as long as you stay in contact, we've always got a spot for you! We have Beach Training programs, where we host you at the beach for 10 days and take advantage of the steady winds to get you fully trained in one trip!
  • What is the training schedule?
    We train whenever the weather is favorable, with flights primarily in mornings or evenings, to avoid thermal activity, which can be dangerous mid-day. Weather is forecast 1-2 days in advance, and trainees are notified in group chat. We train year-round, as Kansas weather can be favorable often throughout the year.
  • How high can you fly?
    Paramotor pilots can fly from inches off the ground, up to 10,000 ft safely. Always check the airspace you're flying in for additional guidance.
  • Where can you fly?
    You can fly in the United States in any unregulated airspace. You will learn more about allowed regulated airspace in Ground School, including FAR-103.
