Paramotoring Malaysia Courses near Kuala Lumpur From Extreme Sports Cafe
Learning to fly a Paramotor requires a little more training than regular free-flying paragliding. After all, it is flying a paraglider with the addition of an engine which changes the launch and flight characteristics. Since a pilot will be launching and landing with an additional 25kgs of weight, it is extremely important that the pilot be competent in evaluating the conditions and has the appropriate skills.

Malaysia Paramotor General Rules
- A paramotor pilot under training can only fly under direct supervision of an instructor.
- No student may fly under power until the required un-powered flight/ground skill levels relating to the required tasks have been fully demonstrated to the satisfaction of the PPG instructor.
- A pilot under Powered Flight training will fly only either within sight of or in pre-arranged radio contact of a designated instructor unless he is performing a declared cross country task.

Malaysia Paramotor Course Notes
- Normally paramotor training requires at least 15-20 hours. (depending on weather conditions and individual ability) Training days can be consecutive or done over several weekends. The first solo flights are controlled by two-way radio so the instructor can tell the student exactly what to do.
- The morning training session begins at 7.00am until about 10.00. The morning session is often followed by breakfast and a chance to discuss progress with the instructors.
- There is no paramotor training during the hot part of the day. This is a good opportunity to relax and prepare for the afternoon session. This starts around 4.00pm until sundown. This also allows for more stable air conditions for paramotor training.
- Training begins at an open grass field where skills for parachute ground handling are taught. Final flights take place in an open area away from buildings and obstacles. Final flight will be with radio instruction for directing the correct course and actions for the student pilot.
- The initial training involves learning how to control the parachute on takeoff and landing and use of the harness and motor whilst in flight. A lot of attention is paid to wind speed and direction, as this is critical for a successful chute pull.
- After ground training and assessment by the instructors, students then complete the first solo paramotor flight. Additional flight instructions are provided from the ground via 2-way radios.
- Once the Beginner Stage I course has been completed, students may continue to fly independently.
