Learn to Paramotor (Have your own gear this is for you!)

Learn to Paramotor (Have your own gear this is for you!)


The new 12-14 day Learn to Paramotor course is for the complete beginner wanting to focus on Paramotoring. Taught by two time (and current) Australian Paramotoring Champion, this course is a comprehensive structure that teaches you the fundamentals of paragliding and paramotoring. 


12-14 Day Footlaunch Paramotoring Course

THIS is the checkout option for those with their own gear.

Enjoy the freedom of powered paragliding. Just imagine a powered aircraft that can take off in a few meters, fly for 3- 4 hrs using only 4 litres of fuel per hour. Then when you are done, in less than 5 minutes your motor is packed up and back in the boot of your car.

In our courses we teach you in smooth coastal air, along our long pristine beaches. You cannot beat the beach air for learning in, it’s smooth all day. At High Adventure we also teach on the latest and lightest gear, not some heavy old worn out 2 stroke that takes 10 goes to get started and will wear you out!

Any licensed paragliding pilots of an Intermediate level can undertake the SAFA Paramotoring Endorsement course that we offer.
