PARAMOTORS and PARAMOTORING LESSONS

 

FlyBC Airsports is your first choice for paramotor training in Western Canada. At the Eagle Ranch Flight Park, you have 25 acres of launch and landing area and valley and mountain flying for enjoying your paramotoring experience safely.

FlyBC Airsports offers new and used paramotors and complete wing and motor packages for as low as $6795 CDN.



Paramotor Training at FlyBC:

We believe a paramotor pilot must learn the art of free-flight without the motor first with at least a 4 day paragliding course to learn how to launch and land safely without the additional weight of the paramotor. Cost of these lessons is $200 per day including gear rental. Length of the course depends on individual skill level and aptitude.

Following the free-flight lessons, we will embark on training on the actual paramotor you want to purchase to familiarize you with the difference in how thrust and weight affects the paramotor wing (each unit is different).

Paramotor Lessons are $200 per day and most pilots require another 2-3 days of lessons to achieve the 25 flight requirement Transport Canada dictates.

Typical total Paramotor Course costs are $1200 - $1500 CDN depending on your aptitude.

What is required to legally fly a Paramotor in Canada:

1. Unit must be registered with Transort Canada and a placard with the C-IXX registration details affixed to the frame.

2. Pilot must obtain a Ultralight Pilot Permit by writing the Ultralight Exam at a Flight School or at a Transport Canada Facility (cost is usally $80).

3. Pilot must demonstrate and log 25 takeoff & landings and maintain a logbook for themselves and the paramotor.

4. Pilot must carry license and registration documents on their paramotor at all times (Transport Canada has been doing ramp checks at small airports).
