    The last post in the section is very old.

    Who is doing this?

    Where to start?

    Approximate costs?
    Everything is a hammer.
    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Then it it a chisel.

    Google paragliding....
    There is a crown in Bulwer Kzn that teaches courses. - 6 days or so, in beautiful countryside.
    Have a break from the rat race in Gauteng, and come enjoy some Kzn hospitality.

    And for skydiving there is a crowd on the Umlaas road - Angels Skydiving, that teaches different styles of skydiving.
    Again beautiful countryside, not far from major centres. (Durban & Pmb)
    I met some crazy people.... They made me their leader.

    Good morning

    I am a new PPG pilot - MIND BLOWING STUFF - AMAZING.

    I did my license with Paramotor Africa. Basjan is an amazing instructor and you can do your training on his gear so you don't even need to go out and buy the stuff.

    He will come to you but best is to do your training in the Cape, the wing is much easier to handle and we managed to do all our training flights within 10 days.

    Check out Paramotor's facebook page or his website for info.

    You will not find a nicer instructor !

    You are welcome to call me if you want to chat about it ... I won't keep you for 3 hours ;-)

    Cheers
    Chris

    O yes forgot to add - ITS FRIKKEN AMAZING !

    Its an amazing way to enjoy aviation. You will find that a lot of commercial pilots also do PPG as you are not sitting in a tin can but outside in the wind with just the motor and wing.

    Flip it you must try it !

    :-)

    I do this in Europe, I fly a Moster 185. It is a very popular sports where I live. Do it already for 15 years or so.
    If you want to learn it, choose a very good school and choose stable conditions for your first solo flights.

    My dream is to fly over the Botswana pans one day. But as said, conditions need to be stable. Have some experience flying in Europe, but not in Africa.
