Course Overview: Your Path to the Skies

This 14-day adventure is structured to ensure a smooth and enriching learning experience, guiding you through every essential phase of paramotoring.

Step 1: Mastering the Basics

The first step of your paramotor course lays the foundation with ground handling, where you'll learn the art of 'kiting' to understand and respond to your glider's behaviour. 

Mastering launch techniques is next, with a focus on both forward launches in low wind and reverse launches in higher wind conditions.

Then it's onto launching and landing practice. This stage is critical for building confidence in your ability to safely transition to flight, assess ground conditions, and choose safe landing options.

Step 2: Powering Up

As you progress, the course delves into equipment review and pre-flight checks, ensuring you're familiar with every piece of your gear and understand how it functions. 

Paramotor simulator training then introduces you to the feeling of flying with the motor's weight, helping you grasp throttle control and prepare for the added dimension of power in your flights.

Step 3: Taking To The Sky

This phase brings you the moment you've been waiting for - adding power to your flights! You'll practice launching, landing and in-flight manoeuvres under the radio-assisted guidance of our expert instructors. 

This phase includes numerous flights, touch-and-go's, and even cross-country flying, offering breath-taking views and invaluable flying experience.

Step 4: Theory and Assessment

To complement your practical skills, this paramotor course in Australia covers essential theory on topics from the SAFA training syllabus, including airspace rules, principles of flight, meteorology, and emergency procedures. 

Theoretical understanding is assessed through multiple-choice exams, ensuring you're not only a skilled pilot but also a knowledgeable one.

Each step of this paramotor course in Australia is designed to elevate your flying skills, understanding, and confidence, preparing you for the freedom of the skies like never before.
