Foot Launch Training
Want To Become A Paramotor Pilot?
At One Up Adventures we train just 2 to 4 foot-launch students per class. This means Travis, Kyle and ALY will be at your side every step along your path to success.
We pride ourselves on training in intimate groups, in a safe environment, on the best equipment and with no expense spared on our part.
Your complete course will take 7-9 days to complete and you will finish both confident and safe to fly solo from home.
The foundations of our training are safety, excellence and of course loads of fun!
One Up Adventures is a USPPA certified school, Travis, ALY and Kyle are all USPPA Certified Instructors, ASC Certified Instructors and Travis is an FAA Certified Flight Instructor. We have trained over 300 beginner paramotor students to successfully fly solo without injury.
If you desire to earn your USPPA PPG2 certification, this course is designed to set you up for success to meet the requirements and earn your certification through us upon completion of your course.
When you train with us, we provide all new state-of-the-art gear for your course. You only need to bring clothing and a willingness to have the time of your life! Because we want your initial focus to be on learning the ins and outs as well as sharing our immense passion for this sport. There is no gear rental fee and we provide always the safest gear adjusted properly for your body size and weight.
We follow the U.S. Powered Paragliding Association PPG1 & PPG2 syllabus, but in addition you receive:
1. A Day One wheel launch Tandem Flight where you will receive dual instruction while taking the controls and flying on the very first day of your course.
2. Numerous tow winch flights where you will practice launching and landing without the weight and complication of the motor.
(*note* - We are very experienced tow operators, use only the safest purpose built tow equipment and have conducted thousands of incident free tow flights with hundreds of students. Tow flights are a critical step in a proper training course and are extremely safe when the proper equipment and expert tow operators are employed).
3. Several motor running "flights" in our hang simulator.
Here you will go through your entire first solo numerous times, while actually running the motor at full power and while communicating with your instructor through a radio helmet without ever getting more than 2 ft off the ground. You will experience the motor noise, learn throttle control, proper weight-shift inputs, realistic brake responses, glider trim controls and how to properly get in and out of your seat in flight.
