How to Fly a Powered Para Glider : Skimming Ground in Powered Paraglider


Welcome to Expert Village. My name is Hugh
Murphy with Surf the Sky Paragliding. In this clip, we’re going to talk about low ground
skimming which is a bit more advanced technique. Because if we’re a couple hundred feet up
in the air, there’s not any terrain that we really have to worry about in an immediate
ascent. When we’re ground skimming, it’s very important to maintain a smooth throttle control
to maintain a level flight just two feet off the ground with the cage. Which then allows
you to either draw your foot onto the sand and write your name in the sand, or get creative
which is a very enjoyable way to fly. And, this maneuver called the foot drag in the
para motor competitions is a more advanced technique. So, this is definitely not something
that you want to start out with until you have dozens of hours of para motoring.
