Foot Launch

Course Price: $3000.00

Pilots who choose to launch on foot can expect a 7-10 day training process. This includes an extensive ground school, 8-10 hours of ground handling, or glider ‘kiting’, then finally a series of 15-20 flights with progressively less instructor input. When you leave us, you’ll be ready to safely and confidently:

  • Identify suitable flying sites
  • Choose appropriate weather for flying
  • Launch, fly and land unsupervised.

Train on our gear. For training, we’ve selected equipment that’s excellent for new pilots. You’ll use our professionally maintained motors and wings so you can worry less about equipment and more about flying. After your training, you’ll be an informed customer, ready to buy that’s right for you.


GROUND SCHOOL

  • AERODYNAMIC PRINCIPLES AND GLIDER DYNAMICS
  • Understanding how and why a wing flies is as important as knowing how to fly it. Students will learn the fundamentals of aerodynamics and the nuances and considerations of flying the special type of aircraft we fly.


  • FEDERAL AIRSPACE
  • Just like on the road, there are rules in the sky. It’s important for pilots to know how to safely and accurately navigate the different airspaces over the United States. You’ll learn how to read FAA Sectional Charts, identify and avoid dangerous and prohibited areas, and scout out future flying trips away from your home field.

  • WEATHER
  • One of the most critical skills a pilot can develop is an understanding of the weather. Our ability to fly safely depends on our ability to know the best weather conditions from the worst. Students will learn both macro- and micro-weather considerations and how to use all available resources to fly in safe air.


  • FAR PART 103
  • As Ultralight Pilots, we’re goverend by Federal Aviation Regulation Part 103. All Paramotor pilots should know and understand these regulations in order to confidently fly your aircraft without fear of accidentally violating a law you didn’t know existed.
  • SAFETY
  • Being a safe pilot is a mindset. Not only will we give you the skills to fly safely, we’ll teach you consistent pre- and post- flight safety checks, and the psychology necessary for a long career as a competent aviator.
