Paramotoring and paragliding equipment
CHOOSING YOUR PARAMOTOR
We have school equipment from different manufacturers and we can give you best advice to suit your needs and skills.
Lately we started cooperation with AirConception - great performance, very light and reliable engines! We believe that this manufacturer, based in Paris, has best equipment on the market to suit all types of pilots.
All AirConception paramotors are fitted with low hang point harnesses, making them exceptionally safe, comfortable and easy to fly.
Delta and Titanium models are the latest in Paramotor design and are fitted with powerful Nitro200 engine.
CHOOSING YOUR PARAGLIDER
Choosing the right size glider ensures proper performance and safety.
Dudek, one of the biggest and best manufacturers of paragliders in the world, is renowned for their high quality and attention to detail. We are an official dealer for Dudek which has a wide range of beginner, intermediate and advanced wings. Paramotoring Ireland uses the Dudek Universal in the school and recommends it to students who have completed their training.
Reserve parachute is a must. This is a last chance survival option in the unlikely case of a catastrophic wing failure or pilot error. The reserve can be mounted in several different places for easy access in an emergency.
Water rescue system. The U-shaped device has single-use CO2 bottle and a sensor located down low on one side. When the sensor gets submerged inflation is very quick, probably about 1 second and it will remain at least 90% inflated for probably several hours.
Industry offers a wide range of additional accessories. These include helmets, headsets, harnesses, clothes, varios and more. For further information and deals give us a shout here.
Is it safe sport?
Like any other sport activity paramotoring is reasonably safe sport. Use proper quality wings and motor, do not misjudge your skills to avoid injury.
How long does training last?
That depends on weather conditions and one's progress. Usually after 4-5 days you should be airborne on your first flight! To master your skills takes much longer.
Do I have to buy some equipment?
No, we provide all equipment necessary. Take courage and commitment just 🙂 Seriously - TAKE YOUR TIME. With a huge choice on offer getting the right paramotoring equipment can seem overwhelming. It’s very important to make an informed decision, so talk with your instructor. We have seen clients getting poor training…
