Ground Handling

Mastering the art of ground handling is a fundamental skill in learning to fly a paramotor and widely recognized as the most important of all skills a proficient paramotoring pilot can have. At iFly Indiana, we put great emphasis on developing confident ‘kiting,’ control and launching skill techniques that teach pilots how to respond to their glider and understand its reaction.

Adding Power

With your ground handling skills now well practiced and your paragliding skills mastered, you are now ready to discover what powered flight is all about. After spending some time kiting your glider with the new additional weight of the motor and getting acquainted with the throttle, you will practice applying some power. Getting a feel for the engine and what it’s like to apply power is a new technique for you to master.

Taking to the Sky

With the culmination of all your skills learnt over the past few days you are now ready for your first powered flight. You will perform the same launch sequences you learned in the paragliding fundamentals and now simply add some power. Within a few short steps, you will now be airborne. You will practice your launching, landing, and turns. Lots of flights, touch and go’s and some stunning cross country flights are ahead of you. There are unlimited experiences and exciting challenges with this new sport.
