Fly2Now offers Powered Paragliding training year round. Although we are headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we can arrange for instruction nationwide.

There are two types of Powered Paragliding launching techniques: foot-launch and wheel-launch using a trike or quad cart.

Powered Paragliding foot-launch BASIC training requires more time and student must be in decent to good physical condition because take-offs are performed by running with a paramotor on student's back. The weight of the paramotor (average 55 lbs.) gets lighter as soon as the paraglider is inflated and begins creating lift, nevertheless, the student must carry part of that weight during the launching and landing procedures. The average training time is typically 5-8 days.  Cost: $1,500.00 ($1,300.00 with purchase of equipment)

Powered Paragliding Training

Powered Paragliding trike-launch (3 wheels) or quad-launch (4 wheels) BASIC training is simpler, safer and faster. Student is not carrying the weight of the equipment because he/she is sitting on a harness which is attached to the trike's or quad's frame. The average training time is typically 3-5 days.  Cost: $1,500.00 ($1,300.00 with purchase of equipment)
