The only thing we ask of you to bring to training is a great attitude and be ready to have tons of fun. If you would like to talk with any of our past students about our gear or our operation, please let us know or check out our training testimonials page.

At this time, Team Fly Halo can administer USPPA ratings PPG1 – PPG3, and USHPA ratings P1 – P4.  Team Fly Halo Members will have what they need to be successful toward earning ratings.  A USPPA PPG2 rating (the standard) is very attainable within this time frame.  However this will vary depending upon individual ability, and weather conditions.  Naturally, we travel far and wide to seek the best training destinations to maximize your success, but there are some circumstances that can be out of our control.

Time To Be A Tease! Say Hello to the SCOUT Enduro Paramotor

Psssst! This is the new paramotor cage system from SCOUT Paramotors.

We’d like to introduce you to the stronger, more durable frame system capable of running a variety of different engines with both left turning and right turning props. This new design features a stainless steel cage and skid system that will be able to take a beating and fly another day.

The SCOUT Enduro is the beginner pilot setup we’ve all been waiting for. It’s definitely not just for beginners though, this unit will handle nearly just as well in the sky as the Carbon model but with the added durability on the ground. SCOUT team pilot Javier Lopez is currently flying the Enduro at the World Slalom championships and is doing quite well. He’s running a Polini Thor 250 out back for insane amounts of power.

We will have more details and published numbers on the SCOUT Enduro in the coming weeks. Until then, we’ll be leaking more photos of the unit so stay tuned for more!

Niviuk Kougar 2 Action Reel Video

The Niviuk Kougar 2 paramotor wing landed in the USA last week and we’ve been thrilled to say the least.   Unfortunately, weather has not been cooperating with us but we did manage to get in a short 20 minute flight to capture some rather stunning footage.  Thanks to James Allred for filming and editing,  you make us look good buddy!

We hope to get more testing in soon of the Niviuk Kougar 2 and we’ll be doing a detailed review in the near future.   The Niviuk Dobermann is also going to be coming over  the pond soon, we hope to see it in early July so we can begin testing on that as well.   Patience!! 🙂

Kevin Antholt’s Paramotor Training Testimonial

The Morro Bay training was fantastic!

When I had decided to get into the sport I researched different companies, people and the different programs that they offered. It was very confusing because I wanted to get safe complete training at a reasonable price. So who do you believe when everyone says they are the best and then bash the other guys. After speaking with Byron a few times on the phone I decided to sign up for the Morro Bay training class.

Some determining factors were it would be less risk to do the training on someone else’s equipment and make sure it was something I really could do.
I liked that Byron didn’t get into the bashing of other training programs but focused on what they do to make me a safe pilot.

Also liked the that when I brought up equipment purchase he slowed me down and said “let’s see how you fly first then we can make recommendations”. After the phone conversation I felt he had my interest in mind not just trying to make money.

Best decision I made! Shane, Byron and Boyd are not only great guys but have the experience and patience to train an 51 year old out of shape guy like me. They covered everything in detail, no pressure, learn at your pace, praise when you do it right and detailed instruction when it wasn’t without making you feel like a tool. I could remember questioning in my mind why we had to keep doing things so repetitively but when it came time to fly and the muscle memory kicked in it all made sense.

I also like the fact that the equipment they offer is top notch and tested by them before they even sell it. There was never any pressure to purchase anything which was nice also.

Having a private pilot’s license since the age of 18 I’m familiar with the concept of flying so I say this with a little bit of experience. If you are thinking of getting into this sport please don’t fall for the gimmick of getting trained in a few days on the equipment they make you purchase, it will take longer than that, it will take time to understand and build skills. Stay safe and go with the best, get trained with Team Fly Halo so you can make it a fun, confident and long lasting sport for yourself.
