4 years ago I have strapped my sleeping bag to my paramotor, I took off and returned home a week later. I have flown all around Slovakia visiting the most spectacular places and covering more than 1000km.
And all my pilot friends said:
Last year I have strapped my sleeping bag to my paramotor and won the adventure class of the Icarus Trophy, covering more than 1900 km across the amazing places in the US.
And all my pilot friends said:
This was what I though when flying over Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland.
“Those ground worms will never experience that!”
This is what I thought when chasing down the canyon of the Skoga river and flying over the Skogafoss waterfall. Imagine discovering new places, landscapes never seen before. Everyday a different landscape, every day a new adventure.
Stop flying in circles! You have seen the church tower in your home town from every single angle. Its time for new paramotor adventures. Its time to become a different pilot!
People are afraid to do adventure flying because of all the things that may go wrong. Well, that’s part of the adventure and all you need to do is commit yourself: plan the route, pick some dates and take only half of the stuff you think you need. Do not prepare for the unexpected, improvise:-)
Or, if you want to do it the easier way, join us!
We will drive a minibus with a fully-assembled ready-to-fly paramotors in the trailer during the day to various spots. Fly in the evening, camp overnight and fly from the same spot in the morning. Transfer to the next spot during midday again.
Usually we improvise a lot. Knowing the best locations, we select one based on weather forecast. Sometimes its raining here but flyable 100km away. This way we get the most of flying possible.
for 2018 we plan following trips:
No return back! we will fly from one spot to another truly exploring the distances on our paramotoros. A pilot guide will navigate the whole group in flight with radio communication supplied to everyone. A support car will follow with all our camping gear and stuff and the ground-support will get fuel for us for the next flight. Usually one flight in the morning and one in the evening. We will rest during the day or do local sightseeing.
On our trip we will have one or two full-bivouac overnight stays. We strap sleeping bags to our paramotors, top-up the fuel tanks and take-off. We will land on some remote wildllife spot, rest around a campfire roast some food for dinner. After quick breakfast we will fly back to meet our support car and refill our fuel tanks for the next cross country flight.
We did this a few times in Slovakia and Iceland, best sky ever, millions of stars to watch when falling asleep…
For 2018 we plan following trips:
Congratulations, so you have the balls to fly unsupported! No need for our help then. We are excited to learn about your adventure, make sure you share your experience with us!
We do training trips = take one week off, go for holidays and return as a pilot. Lot of groundhandling, first flights without motor and paramotor flying at the end.
