One Student’s Training Journey With BlackHawk Paramotors:

Our Location:

Utah has some amazing places to take your first Paramotor Flight. With such a wide variety of scenic landscape and terrain, Utah has become a West-Coast mecca for Personal Aviation. Our students start their Training Journey at “Point of The Mountain” – a spacious, open, and fully-manicured training area. Training is held here 7 days a week, 365 days out of the year to accommodate student’s schedules. Students begin by learning the finer points of “Ground Handling” or “Kiting.” This process may take several days depending on the student’s progression. Once a student has displayed the appropriate skills and knowledge to fly confidently on their own, we take them to one of five different motoring locations for their first solo flight! One of the advantages to Utah’s open and varying terrain is that we can choose the absolute best spot for flight. If wind conditions aren’t optimal in one area, we have access to many other flight zones within short driving distance. Students have the opportunity to fly in a variety of locations, therefore maximizing their Training experience. We are a full-service Training Center, therefore offering machine maintenance on site, and have parts readily available for customers.

What is Included With Paramotor Training?

This is a COMPLETE course to learn the “ins and outs” of Powered Paragliding. Our Paramotor Course will provide all the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and confidently fly on your own. We cover everything you will need to know about the equipment, properly setting up for a successful launch, how to stay safe in the air, and how to land. We will cover the fundamentals of basic machine maintenance, weather conditions, and many little “tricks” that would take years to acquire on your own. Class size is limited to ensure a one-on-one quality experience, so please call to reserve your spot. If you are rusty and haven’t flown in a while, we also offer FREE refresher courses to our students. We are here to serve you now and support you in the future!
