IPPA Training



If you would like to become a Paramotor Pilot, proper training is essential.

A Paramotor is basically a motorised Paraglider, that allows the pilot to typically take off and land in an open field. A small two-stroke engine, is strapped to the back of the pilot which powers a propeller, generating the required thrust for launch. The Paraglider wing is attached to a harness and pilot via carabiners.
