AIR VENTURE PARAMOTOR TRAINING PROGRAMS

10 years of expert flight training experience

Air Venture provides the most professional services with highly experienced and friendly, patient instructors. 

We also use industry leading Ozone wings, Nirvana paramotors and trikes for both on ground and in-flight training.

All equipment is provided for the training and there are no requirements to purchase any equipment in advance prior to commencing a training program.

 

Normally training requires five days depending on individual ability. Training begins at an open field where ground handling skills are taught.

 

The initial training involves learning how to control the wing on takeoff and landing and use of the harness and motor whilst in flight. A lot of attention is paid to wind speed and direction, as this is critical for a successful inflation and take-off.

 

After ground training and assessment by the instructors, students then complete the first solo flight with additional flight instructions provided from the ground via 2-way radios.

INTRODUCTORY TRAINING SESSIONS RM 180

 

Includes a flight in a tandem paramotor trike with an experienced  instructor. This session costs RM 180 and takes a few hours normally in the afternoon. Here we actually commence the flight training program by teaching the basics of forward and reverse launch techniques and then a tandem instructional flight.

 

If a student then decides to continue with the full training program, this session is free. During the flight, you will be able to try steering the paramotor in the sky and feel exactly what it is like to fly for yourself before committing to the full course.

AIR VENTURE - ASIAS MOST EXPERIENCED TRIKE TRAINERS

 

Paramotor trikes are quickly becoming a common alternative to foot launch as no longer is it required to "wear" the paramotor on the back like a back pack.

 

This saves a lot of effort and exertion when taking off and the weight of the paramtor and flight equipment is not so important anymore.

 

Trikes are fun to fly as takeoff and landing techniques in some ways feel more like flying a fixed wing aircraft. Trikes are also a great way to share your flying experiences with friends as the tandem trike is a natural progression for the paramotor pilot.

 

Trikes are also a great way for more senior pilots wishing to enjoy the magic of flight without having to wear the paramotor. Also pilots with issues with knees or ankles or other disabilities that want to fly paramotor may fly trike with safety and ease.

 

Trikes also make it far easier to carry more gear such as camera equipment or extra gasoline for long distance flights. Trikes are just plain all-out fun to fly.

 

For those who don't want to learn to fly while wearing a motor on their back may now consider going straight to learning to fly a trike.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Trike course (solo trike) includes:

- Landing approach training

- Emergency procedures

- Emergency landing technique - upwind and downwind landings 

 

Trike safety training

- Correct setup of the trike and wing

- Pre-flight checks

- Avoiding trike roll-overs

- Techniques to avoid "parablending" the wing in prop

- Landing rollout techniques

- Radio controlled 1st trike solo flights

 

 

WHY LEARN TO FLY A PARAMOTOR?

 

  • The best reason to fly a paramotoring is simply good fun. It's about as close as you can get to those dreams of flight.

  • Flying a paramotoring is easy, rewarding and, with the proper training and equipment, very safe.

  • Paramotoring offers flying like no other type of aircraft in that it is possible to fly high and far or low and slow.

  • Paramotoring is undoubtedly the least expensive form of powered flight. The equipment is most certainly less expensive than most other powered aircraft and a day in the sky will only cost a few dollars in fuel bills.

  • Paramotors are portable and easily transported to any location providing an infinite variety of flying locations. With careful pre-trip preparation and packing, paramotors can often be checked in on commercial flights thereby increasing the range of flying opportunities to almost anywhere on the planet.

  • Paramotoring also offers one of the best platforms for aerial photography because of the virtually unrestricted field of view from the harness in addition to the ability to fly in low and slow to capture excellent stills or video.

  • Other exciting aspects of paramotoring include competitions, cross country flights and social flying events.
