An Amazon bestseller with over 240 positive reviews from happy pilots, reaching #1 in air sports & recreation in its first month! This book has been used by instructors to help train students, from Simon Westmore of Paramotor Training UK in Membury to Paul Haxby of AXB sports who gives a copy to every pilot he trains.



New 2023 update released 5th September 2023, containing a major update with 54 new pages of essential information, various updated pages, new graphics and illustrations, a new 16 page section on reading VFR charts for US and UK pilots and more. Amazon are also now processing orders for the new edition, bare in mind a new edition means we temporarily lose our reviews, so take a look at the old version to see over 240 positive reviews.

After the CAA meeting on 12th July 2023 regarding airspace infringements, better education was the main conclusion to avoid regulation, registration and restrictions. This book was mentioned at the meeting, and it was suggested that we add a section from the CAA’s own material. As of 16/08/2023 this book contains an additional 20 pages from the CAA’s paramotor and skyway code. You will also learn all of the things discussed at the meeting, these are things that pilots are neglecting, and this could seriously impact our sport and lead to licensing and the removal of the freedom we all enjoy as paramotor pilots, so please study the material and keep us free from tighter regulations.

paramotor book review


“The best book to get when you’re starting out, and also a great resource for existing pilots.”

The one book that every beginner to intermediate pilot needs. The complete paramotor pilot’s book of knowledge will take you through the entire training process and beyond, and will teach you everything you need to know to become a safe and confident pilot. With helpful pictures, illustrations, and explanations of everything you need to know, from launching and landing, to handling emergencies.

Paramotor training is important, but unfortunately courses are incredibly short. Time is of the essence, so 95% of training is spent in the field ground handling, and with a few very short flights. New pilots are coming away from training with less than 5 hours flight time, and very little knowledge of so many important aspects of the sport.

This manual contains everything you need to know, spread over 203 pages that you can return to whenever you need help, instead of using trial and error like most pilots do. The book has been put together with beginners in mind, but even pilots with a few hours behind them are sure to find the information very valuable. It’s designed to take you through the entire training process and beyond. You’ll learn secrets that you won’t be told during training, and essential information that instructors are failing to teach.

Many people don’t have the time to study an entire book, so everything is split up into handy bite-size sections, that you can enjoy one at a time. With helpful images and illustrations, and thorough explanations of everything from the theory of flight, to developing skills and confidence in the air. Throughout the book, you’ll find lots of tips and tricks, and handy yellow highlighted boxes that contain important safety information. And at the end, there’s even a multiple choice exam that you can take to make sure you’ve absorbed everything that you have learned.

The book is designed to be read in the order that the sections appear, this lets you learn the basics first; before moving onto the more advanced stuff, like handling wing malfunctions, and emergencies. There are sections that will appeal to foot launch, and cart pilots. We look at setting up foot launched, and wheeled machines. And the solo flight section deals with both foot launched, and wheeled take-offs and landings.

The rules and airspace sections are written with both US, and UK pilots in mind. And there is a small international air law section that will apply to pilots worldwide. The book will give you a head start, or provide you with a second phase of training. It will serve you well as you progress in the sport, but to note, the book is not meant for self training. It’s recommended that everybody seek professional instruction, while using this book alongside such training, and to increase your knowledge of the sport.
