We’ve been asking around and you’ve told us that you want the weekly beach update videos back. So, we decided to add a little spice to it. This week, we’re showing you amazing shots of the beach, with John Black’s FreedomFlightCenter.com ‘s Powered Paragliders coasting through the air. Next week, we’re going on a ride on one.
Check after the break for the video.
Powered Paragliding is a form of ultralight aviation in which the pilot wears a motor on their back that provides forward thrust. This thrust is enough to get them fast enough to provide lift using a paraglider wing – speeds range from 5 to 45 mph, depending on motor size and wind conditions. The paramotor usually weighs between 50 and 80 pounds and is supported by the pilot during takeoff, but is then supported by the wing during flight. The pilot sits in a seat that is attached to the entire rig.
