Team Fly Halo has decided to no longer represent Dudek Paragliders as a dealer in the USA.
Since this past summer, Team Fly Halo has enjoyed flying and representing Dudek in the most positive way possible. We have come to realize that within the US, the brand is more suited to a single-source of representation vs. having a network of dealers. It’s for this reason that we’ve decided to send all inquiries about Dudek to it’s USA distributor, Paradrenalin – http://paradrenalin.com
It’s all good! We still think they’re a great brand and wish them the very best in the USA market! We’ll miss you guys! Those customers who have purchased Dudek gliders from Team Fly Halo can still count on us for service and support for the life of their wing.
Chris Pine of ParamotorRadio.com came by to see us at our recentMorro Bay training session. It was great hanging out with Chris and we got a chance to discuss some forward launching techniques with him in an interview. For those of you who’ve never listened to Chris, he does a really great job. Professional would be an understatement.
Get ready for a flying event like no other you’ve experienced before. Airplanes, helicopters, gyros, cannons, guns, and oh yea – lots of paramotors. This fly in takes place every winter in sunny Arizona. For the last few years, Mo Sheldon has been having the event at his own private airport – MoTown. We’d love for you to join Team Fly Halo at this exciting event.
For more information on the fly in or to register, please visit the official Arizona Flying Circusweb page. We’ll see you there!
The Team Fly Halo Paramotor training and St. Patrick’s Day Party is officially on the books for March 14 – 23rd!
Be sure to register for this course early, as our last class filled up 45 days out! This course will take place in our favorite Central California location – students just need to get themselves to the San Jose, CA airport and we get the rest!
Don’t miss another season thinking about taking the plunge! Get started early in 2014 with one of the most in-depth PPG training courses offered in the United States – stop dreaming and join the Team!
Our powered paragliding community is a very tight knit group of guys and girls that absolutely love this sport. We are really all just one big family and in times of need – we come together as one.
One of our good friends in this sport, Eric Farewell had a bad crash yesterday morning and sustained a broken back. Eric is currently being checked out by Doctors but reports are very good so far. He doesn’t need surgery but will have a long road to a full recovery.
Eric has a very loving family who are there with him but we know things are going to be tough for them in the coming months as Eric recovers. We want to help his family during this tough time and could use your help. For the rest of the month, we will be donating 100% of the proceeds to Eric and his family from Team Fly Halo t-shirts sold.
100% of proceeds from all items in our SpreadShirt store will go to Eric and his family.
As pilots, we all remember our very first flight, that euphoric feeling you just can’t explain without actually experiencing it. This past summer we had the opportunity to catch a really awesome reaction from a tandem passenger shortly after touch down with her pilot – Shane Denherder.
This is a short film shot and edited by our good friend Ryan Southwell.
We can always use more positive vibes in this sport so please, like and share with our community to keep things up beat. The feeling of flying PPG is like no other form of flight, we want to bring more people into this sport who enjoy it as much as we do. Reactions like this make it all worth while. If you’re interested in a tandem paramotor flight, let us know!
From now until Wednesday at noon, EST – we are offering the SCOUT Paramotor with a free Team Fly Halo Edition throttle upgrade. We are also throwing in a free SCOUT shirt for customers taking advantage of the deal. Save some cash and let’s go flying!
We’ve gotten feedback from our customers on the new Dudek Snake, here’s what we’re hearing about the most exciting reflex glider to hit the market in a long time –
“I was blown away on the two short flights I had on the new Dudek 18m. The 18m Snake had as much or more lift than any wing I currently own. My first flight I was climbing while fumbling with my GPS and cameras. Next thing I knew I looked down and thought WOW, how did I get this high up so fast? I did a few hard asymmetric turns and dropped back down. I started another climb and watched the GPS vertical speed peg 400 fpm consistently. The next morning I got up and flew again for a second short flight to reaffirm my fun the day before. This time I watched RPM on my Moster 185. Level flight for me was around 6,200 rpm which is the same rpm’s required on my 22 GTR.
The 18 Snake easily climbed as good as my 22 GTR or my 23m EVO. Order placed same day. I think the 18m Snake will be a great fit in my wing collection.”

Earlier this year we set out to add our touches to an already great product, the Parajet Volution. We worked with the PJ factory in the UK to come up with our own color and graphics scheme for our customers.
