When it comes to our sport, we have some of the greatest freedoms of any form of aviation. However,there are certain things that we as ultralight pilots must be incredibly diligent about understanding and following – Airspace Rules.
In this ‘Motor Minute‘ Shane shows us an easy way to research airspace for any flying location as well as a very helpful FAA tool that will help in figuring out all of those pesky little icons.
Long time paragliding acro pilot and paramotor pilot Justin Brim has some great things to say about the new Scout Paramotor.
“Thanks to Shane and Team Fly Halo for letting me take the Scout for a spin the other day! Nice looking machine and the anti-torque wing thingy’s seem to work well. The no offset design is awesome for flying an acro wing with because it doesn’t have a built in turn at low throttle. Its nice to see such forward thinking designs coming to fruition. It “tunnels” and SATs really well too . Kind of strange to not hear the usual creaking and flexing when doing a little wacro.”
Shane and Brad encountered some B.A.S.E. jumpers going for it at one of the most premier sites in the USA. Once they saw what was going down, they had to partake in the excitement. Timing jumps with rapid descents and asymmetric spirals, awesome video Shane!
Often times (with anything in life) most of us never really take the time to analyze how things work. I’ve always been one to try and figure the inner workings of things and see just how they tick. Paraglider manufacturing is something that has always interested me but I didn’t realize just how in depth it really was. Watch this video from Porcher Sport, it reminds me of an episode of ‘How It’s Made.’ Porcher Sport is one of the largest fabric manufacturers for paragliding companies.
Some may say – “So that’s why they’re so expensive.” Me personally, I find paragliders to be quite a bargain, i’m surprised they don’t cost a lot more! Next time your flying, take a look at that glider over head and try to appreciate all of the time, effort and energy that went into making it.
Wow, what a fun time! We’re just getting back from the latest powered paragliding training in Oregon. We had some great students this session that really did amazingly well. Our Oregon coast locations for free flying and paramotoring are some of the all time best spots in the USA to train. Easy for us to say, right? Well, we’ve trained at quite a few sites around the USA and chose Oregon as our place of business for a reason.
Take advantage and be sure to make it out to one of our Oregon Coast paramotor training sessions, we expect to have 2 more full classes this summer before shifting training to Texas. Visit our powered paragliding training page for more information and upcoming training dates.
Don’t try this at home kids! Wing walking is dangerous and while it looks cool – it can be disastrous if done wrong.
Okay, now that that’s out of the way, check out this quick clip of Shane and Jeff having some aerial fun in Florida. Shane is flying the all new Scout Paramotor up front while Jeff out back is on the Parajet Zenith. These guys love flying together!
May 20th is here and with that brings the SCOUT paramotor to the public marketplace. We have decided to sell 10 SCOUT’s at a pre-order special price of $7995.00 as the Scout manufacturer ramps up production in Slovakia. The first orders of the Scout paramotor will start to arrive sometime in August.
We put the training dates in your hands and now have locked into our next class for Summer 2013. Be sure to write down July 20 – 28th on your calenders and come have a blast with us in Oregon. We will be teaching paramotor training on the coast, most likely in Pacific City, OR.
Our powered paragliding classes are filling up quickly this summer, everyone loves Oregon! We expect this to be a full class so if you’re interested in joining us, don’t procrastinate too long. We don’t want to be the guys that tell you the class is full.
See you all in July!
Oh, and if you need any motivation, just watch our youtube videos and get ready for the time of your life!
That’s right, you read that correct. Now take 2 minutes and watch the latest ‘Motor Minute’ from Team Fly Halo.
In this episode, Shane is testing out the new Advance Epsilon 7 paraglider and shows us how to properly pack the glider away in it’s stuff sack. These new high tech gliders with plastic rod technology deserve special care when storing.
