Whether you choose trike-launch (3 wheeled cart) or quad-launch (4 wheeled cart) training, our USPPA (United States Powered Paragliding Association) wheel-launch training will cover all aspects of this discipline and take you to be fully confident within 8 days, weather permitting. We follow the USPPA syllabus for being the most complete paramotor training program available worldwide. The first day, the student will learn terminology and maintenance of the complete gear, basic meteorology (weather to fly), aviation regulations, inflations and taxing from the runway threshold to the end of our turf runway (2500 ft. x 150 ft.), ground school on flight patterns and landing procedures. Once a student has mastered inflations / taxing several times and has a clear understanding of the flight procedures, then another tandem flight with instructor will take place followed by the student’s first solo flight (usually on the 3rd or 4th day of training). First couple of solo flights will last approximately an hour so student gets confident with the equipment and his / her skills. Then instructor and student will focus on repetitions; take-off, one lap and landing. As many short flights the student can manage in the remaining days of training. Average student ends with 15-20 solo flights by the end of the course.

Students must wear closed-toe shoes (no sandals) and confortable clothing; t-shirt and shorts are acceptable. Sunblock, hat and plenty to drink. It is also suggested to bring a change of cloths for as the first days are more physical than when student is already flying after first solo.
