First flight

powered parachute

I finished triming off 2 and a half minutes of my powered parachute video recently and posted it on our site. If you look closely you can see a bald eagle resting in a tree when we fly over the river.

It takes 15 to 20 hours of instruction to obtain the new Sport Pilot certification which allows you to operate a 2 seater legally.

Powered parachute flying is mainly a warm weather sport, and even then you usually have to restrict flying to a few hours in the morning and evening when the winds are below 15 mph.
