How to Fly a Powered Para Glider : Transporting a Powered Paraglider


Welcome to Expert Village. My name is Hugh
Murphy with Surf the Sky Paragliding. In this clip, we’ll be talking about transporting
your para motor. Obviously, there’ll be variations depending on the size of your motor and what
type of vehicle you have. In one case scenario with a small vehicle/large motor, you can
always put a rear bumper rack. Fortunately, in this situation, we have a small motor and
a big van. So, the job is somewhat easy. Once the unit is inside, however, you do want to
use motorcycle tie down straps to just secure it to one area. So, when you go over the bumps,
the motor stays upright and solid. Okay. So, I’m going to position the motor around so
that I can nail it down the best. And, you’ll also notice, again, we’re using our plywood.
In case there is any fuel coming out at all, any spillage, the plywood will protect the
car. And then, at this point, we simply attached the motorcycle tie down straps to a secure
point and snug it down. Then, we’ll do this on both sides and secure it from as many positions
as you can that really holds it down solid.
