Paramotor Preflight Blues, a side effect of Post Flight apathy.

Have you ever discovered a problem during preflight that prevents you from flying?

I know it’s happened to me.. after a long day of work, you rush out to your favorite flying site just in time for that perfect sunset flight only to discover something on your Paramotor during preflight that prevents you from flying. 

Post Flight Inspection is one of the most important things to remember.  Quick tip: when/if you find a problem however small or big, fix is ASAP and don’t procrastinate.

Kind words from our Paramotor students

Ryan Smith

“I haven’t been flying lately because I’ve been working way too much but I got a call from my instructor yesterday and he came to visit me how cool is this! I had one of the best flights today withByron Leisek from Team Fly Halo I remember four years ago when I was choosing which school to go to he said that the training is the most important decision you will make, you will become a student for life. Don’t cheep out on cheap training because it really does pay off to have that right instructor and good equipment. Thanks for the visit what a flight today!

Freshen up your Paramotor fuel system

Unexplained hiccups during flight on your Paramotor?

Replacing your fuel system on your Paramotor can save you from unexplained engine outs, overheating and priming issues. Once exposed to petrol; fuel lines become stiff, brittle, and are constantly expanding which can lead to air leaks in your system. Tygon fuel line is our preferred product to use and can be found at most auto part stores. It’s always best to mimic your current system and refer to the owners manual – and follow the suggested method of installation.

If you have any questions or need help, feel free to give us a call. 855-FLY-HALO

Is your Paraglider ready for retirement?

How do you know when you paraglider is ready for retirement?

Our wing takes care of us, but do we actually take the time to take care of it in return, and how do you know when it’s time to let her go or hang on?

UV exposure, dirt, moisture and time in flight are just a few examples of how a wing is stressed and can wear overtime.  There is only so much that we can inspect visually.  Do yourself a favor once a year and have a professional repair facility inspect your glider.  Here is a short list of what they will test and look for during the inspection:

  • Risers for fraying or wear on the webbing
  • Cloth for any tears, punctures and porosity
  • Lines for sheath damage, severed, kinked, stretched or shrunk in length

Depending on the brand of paraglider you own, get in touch with your local or favorite repair facility today.. well okay, maybe after this weekend’s flying 😉

As always, if you have any question or need help finding a reputable repair facility, give us a call.

Fly Safe.

Paramotor Preflight GAME

The New Paramotor Preflight GAME!

Can you spot the differences between the two paramotors?

12829341_1038403779531676_1673495762742353370_o

Lets face it, as we get comfortable with our paramotor kit, we can become complacent and skip the all important preflight.  Can you spot the differences between the two paramotors, and if so, how many?

Paramotor #1 has been preflighted and is ready to go.

Paramotor #2 hasn’t been preflighted, and here is a small list of what is different if you didn’t catch them already:

-One prop bolt is loose

-Fuel tank strap isn’t snug

-Silencer gasket is leaking and needs to be tightened

-Air-box is loose

-Spark plug terminal cap is loose

-One rubber engine mount is starting to crack and needs to be replaced

-And on and on and on…

Do yourself a favor and preflight before every flight.  It’s a lot easier to catch problems on the ground before your propeller catches them in the air.

Give us a call if you have any questions or just need a quick tip.

Fly safe!
