The end of Feb saw another wicked week of Paramotor tuition, March came with a solid group from Ireland, Wales, and England. A very lovely bunch of lads, all super ken, the new Syllabus, and our unique two-week course gave ample time despite some wet weather to pack in plenty of flying practice.
The group began with plenty of kite control, practicing at our private lakeshore training field. Flying we always say is fairly easy but controlling the glider on the ground is like taxiing your aircraft and needs plenty of practice. We also have special ground handling BDG kites for windier days so we never miss an opportunity to train.
After some ground school work, we insist all pilots can take off and land without the engine, it means less pressure on the students with an engine running. They get the chance to launch with no additional weight or noise, make some simple turns, and perfect landings.
Finally, we move on to engine practice, walking and controlling thrust, getting confident using the machines, we marry up the wing control we have learned with the thrust of the engine into take-off runs. It gets very exciting from then on in.
