Paramotor flying is perhaps the simplest form of powered flight. Paramotor flying can be done with an engine on the pilot's back or with a chassis on three or four wheels, a trike. In this variation, you fly the pilot together in the trike, with a propeller on the back.
The start is in the Belgian town of Maaseik. This is near the Dutch border in South Limburg. In consultation with the pilot, you can also take off in Kinrooi or Lommel and determine the route. It is very nice to make a beautiful flight over Flemish Limburg.
Flying a paramotor is very different than flying a plane. The seat with the engine, is also called the trike. Attached to this trike is a large screen. This allows you to float through the air. You can go up to 450 meters in the air, so you have a fantastic view and you can enjoy the surroundings! The paramotor is controlled by pulling the toggles.
This form of flying is often compared to motorcycling. You are in the open air, you feel the wind and you hear the sounds on the ground. All of this gives you an amazing sense of freedom.
You always begin the flight with a brief explanation and safety briefing. The instructor enthusiastically talks about his passion and explains the basics of paramotor flying. The instructor answers all your questions, he tells how the paramotor stays in the air and how you can steer, for example. This part takes about 10 minutes, no matter how long you are going to fly.
Once you have checked with the pilot that the paramotor is ready to go, it's time to go. You take off from a grass runway, which adds to the feeling of freedom. You go faster and faster over the grass until suddenly you are loose. You'll be surprised how fast the paramotor climbs, this is due to its low weight combined with the fairly powerful engine. Once in the air, you also get to steer yourself.
Because the paramotor flies relatively slowly and low, you have a fantastic view. You can fly over natural areas or perhaps over your own home.
