Suitability: Complete Beginner

Location: South Downs in Sussex, UK




These courses are conducted in a non-residential format on the South Downs near Brighton, offering flexible scheduling throughout June, July, August, and September.

Accommodating both complete beginners and paragliding pilots seeking a paramotor conversion, we adhere to the BHPA training syllabus.



Course Structure

Module 1: Paramotor Beginners Course
Completed over 3 to 4 days, participants develop non-power skills, culminating in non-motorised hill flights and robust wing control skills. Introduction to the motor unit, safe operating procedures, and thrust exercises are covered. Completion of most of the BHPA Elementary Pilot (EP) Paragliding hill syllabus allows progression to powered flight in Module 2.

Fitness Note: Basic fitness is expected, and the ability to run a short distance is required. Paramotors may weigh over 25 kg, making it unsuitable for individuals with back problems.

Trike courses coming soon!



Teaching Philosophy

Individuals have diverse learning preferences, paces, and comfort levels with pushing their boundaries. I tailor a system that suits your unique needs. Although we laugh, play and fly as a group, as much as I can, I try to keep the coaching one to one.

My objective is to empower you to become a self-sufficient learner. The foundation lies in cultivating a mental space where you feel at ease, secure, and open to experimentation. I carefully select conditions that progressively challenge you without inducing fear, ensuring a consistent learning environment to solidify the skills imparted.
