Paramotoring is the ultimate form of personal powered flight. This is the aviation sport for everyone with a tight budget but a thirst to fly. A paramotor outfit doesn't demand airfields and hangars. It will fit in its owner's car and can be flown from fields smaller than football pitches. In many countries, including Britain, no licence is required.
