The pilot wears a back-pack motor that enables enough thrust to take off from the ground when using a paraglider. Powered paragliders can be launched into the still air on level ground, by the pilot with no assistance. In Canada PPG's are considered an ultralight aircraft, meaning you will need to have a permit issued by Transport Canada before operating. Furthermore, you will need to work with an approved authorized instructor when obtaining your permit.

Why The Nicola Valley BC 

Merritt BC on the average has 93.20 hours of sunshine each month yearly. Located in a valley surrounded by mountains, open spaces with little congestion makes the Nicola Valley an ideal destination spot for Paramotors. Boasting a warm dry climate with endless blue skies and long lasting fall weather is a must for all who love to take to the sky. .

Paramotoring Safety Merritt BC Canada

Paramotoring is safer than Paragliding and Skydiving statistically due to a few reasons. Firstly, you need to be a licensed pilot to fly an ultralight powered paraglider. Secondly, you must be trained with a licensed flight instructor (pilot). Paragliders are not required to obtain a pilot license or follow strict guidelines. Thirdly, paramotor pilots do not require strong winds in order to fly and not land at high speeds. Paramotoring in Merritt BC is the ultimate experience.
