Take the quiz and let us know your results

If you come here to train, do not buy any gear without first consulting with us, this is very important. probably the biggest mistake that paramotor pilots make is obsessing about equipment before they actually do any flying. Good research on equipment is not a mistake but so much is revealed during the learning process – imagine trying to buy a plane when you have never flown in one yet. It works best if you allow us to help you in selecting gear.

The Glider
Gin Pegasus 2

For your benefit, we are the only school that does not sell motors or gliders. This allows us to ensure we get you set up on the right equipment for you. We have tested multiple brands and do have some favorites. They are listed below.

With its amazing flare authority and flawless launch characteristics, the Gin Pegasus 2 puts a check mark in all the boxes. This glider will make you look and feel like a pro. 

price - 3500

The Pegasus 2 is a universal paramotoring wing for beginning and leisure pilots who want a confidence-inspiring wing that is also fun to fly, both with and without a motor.

Keep in mind that when you buy a certain brand of paramotor, you are buying the frame/cage. just about any motor unit will fit on any cage. so, for example, you can order a simplify cage with many different motors. The 3 most popular motors are the Vittorazi Moster 185 Plus, Per Volo Top 80, and the Vittorazi Atom 80. It is also possible to order a complete unit that is ready to fly right out of the box.

*the paramotor prices and weights below are listed as with the Moster 185 motor. reduce by 10 - 12 pounds for the smaller (80cc) motors and reduce the price by about 300.

(these are just a few samples of what is out there) - Prices listed are ballpark and depend on the configuration you choose.
