Summary of Instructor Training
Becoming an instructor is so much more than just teaching people how to fly; it’s a way of life. One of the best ways to become more skilled and safer as a pilot is to become an instructor. The best reward is helping others unlock the dream of flight and guiding them along with fundamentals and building blocks so that they, too, can run into the sky.
We are always looking for instructors. Many of our current instructors are not just paramotor pilots but also love to travel, so having a large well-rounded instructor staff allows us to continue growing and accepting more students. We also have travel classes, and once you grow into a well-rounded instructor, you will have the opportunity to join that rotation and enjoy teaching as our classes take us around the country.
Just as our students grow throughout the 14-day classes, our instructor opportunities promise much the same. We believe it takes time and effort to learn all of the skills required to become a well-rounded instructor, so we have multiple tiers to work towards, with the ultimate goal of being able to lead all objectives.
We ask you to complete one full class of 14 days as an intern, to make sure that this is a good fit. You will be learning and help teaching some fundamental skills, especially with kiting initially. Just like students learning to fly, we understand everyone learns differently, so many opportunities will be had to get you up to speed as quickly as possible.

This is where it all pays off! Sharing a first flight with a student is an emotional journey that culminates with them running into the sky under your watchful eye.
