Introduction

Our Paramotor Courses in Spain are conducted in collaboration with our sister company, The Para Lab, during the months of October and February.

Operated within our state-of-the-art paramotor training facility, we exclusively use machines crafted by the renowned UK company Parajet, a leading innovator in paramotor equipment manufacturing. The Para Lab serves as a test and development hub for new equipment and stands as an academy of excellence for training instructors. Situated in a spacious villa with a fully equipped garage and workshop adjacent, the facility boasts airfields and training slopes within its grounds, creating a seamless fly-in, fly-out experience.

This unique set-up, located in Southern Spain, hosts a diverse range of courses catering to complete beginners, paragliding conversions, safaris, paramotor SIV, APPI to BHPA conversions, and trike paramotoring. Utilising cutting-edge equipment and training methodologies, our courses aim to transform you into confident and skilled pilots, prioritising safety and ensuring an enjoyable learning experience. Whether you prefer the latest Parajet gear or wish to transport your own equipment, we cater to your needs.

 


 

Course Structure

Module 2: Club Pilot (CP) Power
Our Paraglider Conversion to Paramotor Club Pilot (CP) Power Courses maintain a maximum of 6 participants, complemented by a team of 3 to 4 skilled instructors. The cornerstone of our teaching excellence lies in the remarkable talent and extensive experience of our instructors, paired with an exceptionally low student-to-instructor ratio.

This approach guarantees the highest quality, safe tuition, and maximum productivity throughout your week. Expect accelerated, secure, and enjoyable progression under our guidance.

We aim to equip you with the skill set and confidence necessary to evolve into a proficient independent pilot, prepared for various challenges such as active flying, cross-country ventures, confined landings, weather interpretation, and more.

For those interested in trike flying, we offer instruction on the latest lightweight trike from Parajet. This provides a fantastic opportunity for individuals with back problems or difficulty running to engage in this wonderful sport.

Paraglider Conversion Paramotor Courses you must be at least a current Paragliding EP Hill or Tow. The current CP hill pilot should gain the CP Power rating and get a couple of days after that to go cross country and really get stuck in.

Teaching Philosophy

Individuals have diverse learning preferences, paces, and comfort levels with pushing their boundaries. I don’t impose a rigid system on you; instead, I tailor a system that suits your unique needs. Although we laugh, play and fly as a group, as much as I can, I try to keep the coaching one to one.

My objective is to empower you to become a self-sufficient learner. The foundation lies in cultivating a mental space where you feel at ease, secure, and open to experimentation. I carefully select sites and conditions that progressively challenge you without inducing fear, ensuring a consistent learning environment to solidify the skills imparted.

The potency of small group dynamics plays a crucial role. While many techniques are delivered one-on-one, the small group setting provides an opportunity for shared learning. Witnessing peers of similar proficiency confront and conquer common obstacles is not only powerful and inspirational but also adds an element of enjoyable camaraderie to the learning experience.
