Powered Paragliding Instructor and Tandem Rating Clinic – Galveston Texas

Team Fly Halo is teaming up with Parafreedom Air Sports on the Gulf Coast in September to conduct a beginner PPG/PG clinic from the 14th through the 22nd.

For the first time, we’re excited to be offering both Instructor and Tandem ratings through the USPPA for qualified Advanced pilots, as well as a skills clinic for those pilots wishing to improve their own flying or earn initial/advanced ratings.  Those pilots interested would be attending a clinic that runs concurrently with our novice pilot’s clinic, having a chance to work with live students and advanced instructors Bud Wruck and Shane Denherder.

Those pilots interested in improving their skills, earning additional ratings, or earning Instructor/Tandem ratings in a controlled training environment would be invited to attend Sept 17 – 21st.  No matter what your experience level, we are sure to be able to help you be safer, have more fun, and look much cooler in all things related to paramotor!  Contact Team Fly Halo for more information or to reserve your spot today!

Please note that not every applicant will be qualified for Tandem/Instructor ratings and therefore no rating is guaranteed.  Please contact Shane at Team Fly Halo to discuss your knowledge, skills, and experience.  We will be sure to thoroughly screen all prospective instructor/tandem pilots to ensure a reasonable expectation of success.  At a very minimum, you must have two years flying PPG and USPPA PPG3 or USHPA P-4 level skills.  Instructor / Tandem trainees can expect a minimum of one day screening/tuning up before beginning to work with students or fly tandem as pilot in command.

Oregon Powered Paragliding Training Video By Eddie Carter

Eddie Carter came out to fly with Team Fly Halo this past July and put together a really awesome clip of his time with us during our powered paragliding training. This video just gives you a glimpse of what it’s like training with us as well as the shenanigans that take place on the trip.  We like to make the time you spend with us very memorable with a focus on safety and FUN! Friendships that last a lifetime are pretty standard when you spend a week with us.

 

 

We are looking forward to continuing these trips so if you’re interested in signing up, don’t hesitate to reach out to us!

Eddie,  please come out to every training trip we do.  Between the photos and now this video, you rock man!

The Proper Paraglider Wing Fold – Motor Minute #10

Anytime us motor pilots need to pack our wing down small, a lot of us are dumbfound at how to get properly fold the wing.   Well, we’ve finally released the secret.   ParaPlanking!   Seriously though,  if you need to pack your paraglider down small, follow this technique.   This method keeps the glider in great shape and lets you ship your wing for less!

 


 
Our buddies at SuperFly usually have some great stories of motor pilot wing repairs,  it seems a lot of people literally just stuff the glider in a box and send it off!    We hope you find this video beneficial and that it helps you the next time you need to get your wing folded right.

This marks Motor Minute number 10, thank you everyone for the great feedback, we plan to keep pumping these out! If you have any ideas for the next Motor Minute, let us know in the comments below.
