I went to Aviator for training about a year after I started drooling over YouTube PPG videos. I looked at a few schools, but it was clear to me that Aviator Paramotor was the right choice for me. Immersive training by a group of expert and patient instructors is what I really wanted out of my experience.
Even with my high expectations, I was still pleasantly surprised with the quality of the training. I was really impressed how they got a bunch of new pilots into the sky safely and quickly even though none of us had kited or otherwise prepared prior to arriving at their door. The class time was great covering a wide range of topics like weather, wing design, paramotor maintenance, how to make calls on aviation radios, reading airspace maps, and more. The time spent analyzing our every take-off and landing after flights were extremely useful to correcting our form and technique early before bad habits set in.
What they don’t really tell you, however, is how much fun you will have over your two weeks. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard as I did with my fellow Aviators/instructors. It is an experience like no other. If you are considering PPG, I suggest you don’t delay another minute. Life is short. Sign up now to begin a bright new chapter in your life. You won’t regret it!
