FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What happens if the motor dies?

You simply glide down and land in a safe spot. In fact, killing the motor while still airborne is the standard way to land.

How safe is powered paragliding?

It is statictically the safest form of aviation besides commercial airliners. There's a saying that, "it's as safe as you make it." The reason for most accidents is actually landing in water without floatation and improper motor starting procedure (ground starting)

How long does it take to learn?

as soon as 2 or 3 days but advise a minimum of 7 accumulated days to be proficient.

How high can I fly?

Legally you can fly up to 18,000 feet (yes that's over 3 miles) high, but few have wanted to be that cold.

How long can I fly for?

There are some variables, but you can figure around 3-4 hours on a single tank of gas.

Does powered paragliding require a license?

No. Most would agree that it's truly the greatest form of freedom.

Are your instructors certified?

Yes. We are certified through the United States Powered Paragliding Association (USPPA).

Is there a weight limit?

Not really. The more you weigh, the bigger of a glider and motor you will need. Although for tandem flights (2 people), it's best for the passenger to weight 250 pounds or less.
