I have been watching paramotors for MONTHS now on YouTube. I travel a lot for work so I watch from the airport and admire the views. I love the idea of flying and seeing things from a new perspective as all I get is a small window in a plane a few times a week.
So I am youngish (27) and I have a wife. I want to do this but I really want to be as safe as possible. I found a paragliding school in TN close to Chattanooga (across the state but not too far).
Is there some benefit in learning paragliding then going to paramotoring. To me it would make sense to understand how to maneuver a wing properly and have your basic skills as polished as possible. I would like to hear from some people though as this sport isn’t exactly cheap and I’m not exactly rich.
