Am 12.05.2015 veröffentlicht (209) 786-7899 –Filmed & Edited by: Robert Whittaker– “Welcome to a new world… A world of unlimited possibilities and unending exploration. Where those who dare to break the bonds of earth are rewarded with a taste of absolute freedom. A place where friendships are seldom forgotten and the fondest of memories are forged. It’s the realization of a dream shared by mankind since the beginning. To fly like a bird. Here, we are changing lives… One flight at a time. Here, we are paving the path for future generations to explore the unexplored, To see the unseen, and to know the unknown. Welcome to your next great adventure… Welcome (pause) to the world of Powered Paragliding. Powered Paragliding is the safest form of personal aviation out there- bar none. The sport has gained tremendous popularity as an affordable alternative to conventional aircraft. There’s no pilot’s license required, no hanger fees, no annual inspections, and fuel can simply be purchased at your local gas station. Technological advancements over the past decade have allowed this sport to become accessible to just about everyone. Children now fly with their grandparents… Mothers are flying along side their daughters… Even those who struggle with physical disabilities are discovering just how easy it is to operate a Powered Paraglider. A single hand-held throttle controls your altitude, while simple right & left brake toggles control your steering. Realistically, it’s harder to drive a stick-shift car than it is to fly a Powered Paraglider. Cross-country exploration has become one of the sport’s signature components, and Incredible distances can be covered in a single flight. On average, Pilots can expect up to an hour of flight time per gallon of gas… Sometimes much more depending on the efficiency of the Paraglider and the overall flying conditions. That being said, Pilots have the potential to fly for several hours, covering distances of over 100 miles on a single tank of gas. Powered Paragliding isn’t an adrenaline sport like skydiving or base jumping.. Though it appeals to many thrill-seekers, we find that most participants are drawn to the exclusive “low and slow” flight capability of a Powered Paraglider. Even those who are timid of heights can maintain level flight at just a few feet off the ground. They’ve been called “the dirt bikes of the sky,” and the possibilities are endless. This one-of-a-kind, life-changing sport is becoming a global phenomenon. One of the reasons Powered Paragliding has become the fastest growing form of aviation is it’s unmatched portability. Most units can be broken down to fit in a large suitcase or the trunk of your car. Pilots can take their personal flying machine everywhere they go. Setup takes only minutes and you can launch or land from just about anywhere. In fact, many people simply takeoff from their back yards. If you’re like me, you’ve probably spent countless hours on YouTube watching people fly and wishing it was yourself up there. Stop dreaming about it and seize the moment!. The time is now!. If you sleep 8 hours a day and live to be 90, you will sleep away 30 years of your life. Make your time count. It’s YOUR time… What are YOU going to do with it?
