Paramotor Clinic July 8th-17th

Join Team Fly Halo for our Mid-Summer Paramotor training clinic July 8th-17th in Eureka California. We’re kicking off with another ten-day session of drilling in the fundamentals, attitude, and knowledge that’ll make you successful for a lifetime of powered paragliding.  We have dozens and dozens of success stories over the past three years of students who left our class with an above-average skill set and have been killing it ever since.  What’s our secret?  We know that aviation is a lifetime of learning, and we’re humble enough to stay open-minded about our approach.

Training isn’t something you do once and “graduate” from for life.  And we apply that to our own course by seeking out the best training and latest techniques for ourselves – so that we can apply our well-rounded skill set to our school.  What you get is the best techniques and practices learned from our background in paramotoring, free flying, cross country, aerobatics, speed flying, and even general aviation knowledge.

But it doesn’t stop with your initial training.  All Team members in good standing have the option to return to scheduled classes to get current, learn new skills, or just come out and meet new flying friends.  We offer tandem and instructor training for our veterans, while giving them an opportunity to work with new Team members to get practical experience teaching.  We arrange advanced maneuvers and emergency training through our partners for intermediate pilots too.

Fix your paramotor tuning issues in less than 3 minutes

94.7% of all tuning issues on a paramotor are linked to one thing and can be resolved in a matter of minutes.

How long has it been since you replaced your spark plug? Before heading out this weekend, replace it. You’ll notice that your paramotor will start easier, runs smoother, produces more power and is less stressful on your entire system.

Have a good weekend and fly safe!

Paramotor Preflight GAME

The New Paramotor Preflight GAME!

Can you spot the differences between the two paramotors?

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!

Team Fly Halo.

Last Chance Summer Dance – August 28th to September 6th in Morro Bay, CA

The schedule is up, and it’s your last chance to grab a Summer training session with Team Fly Halo for 2015!

August 28th we’ll kick off with another ten-day session of drilling in the fundamentals, attitude, and knowledge that’ll make you successful for a lifetime of powered paragliding.  We have dozens and dozens of success stories over the past three years of students who left our class with an above-average skill set and have been killing it ever since.  What’s our secret?  We know that aviation is a lifetime of learning, and we’re humble enough to stay open-minded about our approach.

But it doesn’t stop with your initial training.  All Team members in good standing have the option to return to scheduled classes to get current, learn new skills, or just come out and meet new flying friends.  We offer tandem and instructor training for our veterans, while giving them an opportunity to work with new Team members to get practical experience teaching.  We arrange advanced maneuvers and emergency training through our partners for intermediate pilots too.  We also offer advanced PPG mountain / high altitude / cross country courses for our students.  As well as offering free-flight transition courses in Utah and will be offering guided Paragliding tours in Mexico beginning Winter of 2016!

If you’re not able to make this course – don’t sweat it!  We’re going to be a bit preoccupied with the Icarus Trophy 2015 through the Fall, but will pick up our training schedule with sessions in late November and late January.

The “Team” in Team Fly Halo refers to the way we conduct our biz. When you join Team Fy Halo, you’re part of a community that perpetuates better, safer flying and a more enjoyable experience.  We want you to grow with us, and it starts with making sure everyone is a good fit for our team – driven, intelligent, and understands the value in above-average instruction and equipment.

If that sounds like you, drop us a note at [email protected] or call us at 855-FLY-HALO today and say hello!

Last Call – July Paramotor Training with Team Fly Halo

In a strange turn of events, we’ve thrown together an impromptu class for a small group of folks who needed specific dates – July 13th -22nd.  We’ve taken inventory, and think we can accommodate one or two extra students.  So if the summer of 2015 is the summer for you to learn paramotoring, and if you are one of those strange people who can take ten days off on a week’s notice, and if you think you would fit into our team; shoot us an email or give us a call right away!

The Fly Halo experience is a different one altogether.  We come together for these clinics spending hours and hours practicing day after day for a reason – you learn quick, and you learn thoroughly.  Other schools might be a better pace for some, working on your skills and ratings on weekends until you’ve accumulated enough time to be on your own.  But with Team Fly Halo you come together in a group setting and fully immerse yourself in paramotoring for ten days, which we’ve found to be the best way to get next-level skills and keep them.

FraserOur ground school covers looking into your specific flying area and educating you on all the possible nuances, and gives you a comprehensive approach to starting out your flying career.  Our students follow-up by staying in touch after initial training, working on their advanced ratings, and getting mentorship through constant communication with their instructors and other team members in their area.  Fly Halo students have an excellent success rate, as we feel they are more well-rounded by the time they become fully-fledged pilots.

If all that makes sense to you, have a look at the highlight reel of our “antics” in the last class – this experience is unforgettable and an absolute blast.  If you can’t make this class – don’t feel bad, it would be weird if you could on such short notice.  Get in touch with us to find out when the next class will be, tell us a bit about yourself, and start planning or an unforgettable experience followed by a life-changing new sport!

Happy New Year from Team Fly Halo – Training dates, and a “resolution” promotion!

We hope you all are having a wonderful 2015!

 

We know lots of you have dreamt about personal flight for years, and hope that you have chosen to make 2015 the year you pull the trigger on some top-notch training and equipment!

 

Team Fy Halo is conducting it’s first session of the year in Morro Bay, CA, February 20th – March 1st.  These group classes are the best way to immerse yourself in the learning environment for your paramotor training, and Team Fly Halo’s comprehensive course is as good as it gets.

Students Soloed, Awesome Labor Day Training Session

Team Fly Halo had a major success during it’s first official training in Pacific City, Oregon- adding 4 new members to TFH!    We had a great turn out with past PPGFun.com alumni and our current students.   The condition were great for dialing in top notch kiting skills and even some ridge soaring!   When it came time to motor, everyone did great.  All of the students loved the Parajet Volution on the ground and even more so in the air.  The Volution performed perfectly for us all.  Equipped with the Thor 100, it had plenty of power for a wide range of pilot weights.

Andy, our newest member of Team Fly Halo was able to make his dreams come true and take flight, not letting a prosthetic leg get in his way.  He was truly an inspiration for us all.  We are happy he chose Team Fly Halo and even more happy we we’re able to share such a special moment with him.     We’ve got lots of video and pictures on the way so keep checking back.

Welcome to the team Scott, Andy, Jim and Ryan!

If you missed out on this training, no worries!  We have already scheduled the next session in Galveston, Texas.  We will be conducting training down there from November 2nd to the 9th, see you there.
