Paramotoring , also known as powered paragliding or PPG, is the most accessible and affordable form of personal aviation, combining the easy flying characteristics of a paraglider with the autonomy and range of powered flight.
Every flight on a Paramotor is an pulse-racing thrill waiting to be experienced – a dream of flight that is yours to realise. The adventurous spirit lurks in all of us, but few ever answer its call. For those with the courage and vision to follow their sense of adventure, Paramotoring is the perfect match.
Classed as a foot-launched ultralight aircraft, Paramotoring is the unlicensed thrill that brings you the dream of personal flight. And you can fly in a lot more places than you’d think. With the majority of airspace open to this type of aircraft and a range of approx. 150 miles on a single tank of fuel, paramotoring offers a massive amount of freedom and fun.
Paramotoring is the most affordable form of powered flight but it isn’t something you should do on a shoestring budget. Paramotor training costs vary depending on the school, syllabus and location. At the affordable end of the scale expect to pay around £1000, with top level training priced at £2500+. For kit, expect to pay £8-10,000. After that, it’s just the cost for a tank of fuel.
Proper training is crucial to successfully and safely enjoy your flying. A moderate level of fitness will help but a positive and resilient mindset is the real key. Along with learning the physical skills required, in-depth training will also give you sound knowledge of the rules, regulations, physics & complexities of the sport.
