Why Paramotor?

Because they are adventure machines!

It means you are able to fly when most paragliders are grounded due to lack of wind.

We have had many memorable flights, and a favourite was launching at Thames aerodrome, with a stunning flight to the Coromandel aerodrome for lunch, then a re-launch to fly over the Coromandel range to Matarangi on the other coast - all on one tank of gas. The views were breathtaking.

What makes a memorable flight?

  • Good flight conditions
  • Beautiful coastal and mountain scenery
  • Smart piloting, ensuring enough height for landing options
  • Reliable Paramotor (well maintained)
  • Comfortable harness and good clothing to stay warm
  • Preparation and training
