If you are one of the many people just discovering this amazing sport, it can be quite a daunting task to figure out where to start. You might have questions like "Which company should I buy a Paramotor from? What motor is best for me personally? How do I select the appropriate Paraglider?

These are the types of questions we will be covering in this multi-part Buyer's Guide from BlackHawk Paramotors USA! This new discussion-style video is the first part in an ongoing series. The primary topics emphasized in this video will be “making the choice between Quad or Foot-Launch flight. There are MANY sub-topics covered here as well. Mike Robinson & Heidi Lee of BlackHawk cover this topic thoroughly by discussing the various products out there and what to consider when making the choice to buy a Paramotor. Why is buying a Paramotor such a “daunting task?” There aren't many places out there to just go “test drive” a Powered Paraglider... It isn't as simple as purchasing a car. This is aviation we are talking about. The sport is growing tremendously, however, there aren't Paramotor Dealers in every city. This can make it hard for people to decide what gear is best for them. Many factors go into choosing the proper equipment: Your weight, age, elevation, flying style, physical ability, takeoff location, and so much more. BlackHawk wants to give potential Pilots access to expert advise from people who actually build the machines, not just fly them. Information in this video is easy-to-understand, and common-sense based. There are many other topics to consider when making your decision to buy. These will continue to be covered in later videos. For now, this is a great place to start! While you are watching this video, take notes and jot down any questions you may have. Then, give BlackHawk a call to speak with an Industry Expert. Our entire team is here for you and fully dedicated to helping Pilots maximize their flying potential. WHAT COMES IN A BLACKHAWK PARAMOTOR PACKAGE?
