Paramotoring is the ultimate form of personal powered flight. This is the aviation sport for everyone with a tight budget but a thirst to fly. A paramotor outfit doesn't demand airfields and hangars. It will fit in its owner's car and can be flown from fields smaller than football fields. In many countries, including Britain, no license is required. This book is a broad introduction to all aspects of this young sport. From inflating the wing to understanding an aviation chart, it deals step-by-step with all the skills and knowledge needed to fly safely and confidently. There is sufficient information here to provide a sound basis for acquiring a certificate of competency to fly paramotors in many countries.
Noel Whittall is a writer who has been flying hang gliders and paragliders for many years. He is an ex-chairman of the British Hang Gliding Association and is Secretary of CIVL, the FAI commission which regulates the sport world-wide.
