9. What are the best times in the day to fly a paramotor?
The best time to fly a paramotor is during the early morning hours from 6am-9am and in the evening hours from 5 pm to sunset in the summer hours as winds are generally calm during this period. Flying in these time you will avoid flying in unstable air/thermic air and you will have a much smoother flight with very little chance of any collapses situations due to thermals and unsteady air.
