Tribal Flight Paragliding offers the straight through Paramotoring Course at the best training facilities in Australia. Also known as "Powered Paragliding". The Foot Launched Syllabus has a large content of Paragliding and you will gain a combination of theory, great practical skills and experience from free flying that will make your Paramotoring transition much easier, safer and enjoyable. We combine early flights from a low training hills with winch towing to safely speed up the learning process and it’s not unusual to have students experiencing low glides on day 1.
Paramotoring is a life changing experience and we like to make sure our students are making an educated decision on the school and equipment that they choose as mistakes can be costly and disheartening.
We invite beginners to visit our training sites and speak with past and present students for honest opinions on the training and the equipment they decided on. This way you can be assured that you’re not being sold inferior equipment that will not be reliable, uncomfortable and ridiculously expensive to replace.
Tribal Flight Paragliding is the only Australian manufacturer of Paramotors. With 20 years of manufacturing experience behind us, we take pride in being able to provide the opportunity for our students to learn how to maintain their equipment. Although our equipment requires very little maintenance we would prefer to teach you rather than having to outsource maintenance. This is just one added feature included our courses has that’s exceptionally popular, with pilots travelling from all states of Australia to participate in a complete paramotor courses.
Realistically a couple of flights up and down the coast doesn’t warrant a Paramotoring endorsement so we provide a training package that covers both inland and coastal flying.
