Considering buying a paramotor. Worth it? Best model for beginners? Quick course enough to start solo flying comfortably?
>>

They are fun, I use them as a skydiver when I wanna toot around, but it can get old after a while
>>
It's very worth it, get parajet and AVOID dogshit companies like Blackhawk.
Nirvana is a good one too. Anything south African is good.

do not buy a paramotor first. start paragliding and learn on the beach/dunes. you should ideally have 10 hours of ground handling before you attempt a big mountain flight. please please please learn mitsos. honestly so cringe seeing how some people kite their gliders. they just thrash it around with the brakes. and you can't do anything about it because everyone is 40 and extremely type A.

I like paragliding because it feels like I'm flying.

How dangerous is that shit compared to like basejumping or flying ultralights/gliders? Surely it would be safer than ultralights because of the parachute thing.

Also should this dude have been using oxygen?

morality rate ?
better than killing a prostitute that's for sure

I sometimes wonder about things like this. Where is it legal to use them? Do you need training? Will you accidentally get in the way of planes?
>>
Get one thats light, has a clutch(that's a must) get training before you comit to buying anything and get plenty of ground handling in on an A wing (with instruction) enjoy and know your local air law.
>>

In the states you can fly unlicensed and untrained. You can even fly higher legally than ultralights.
