Since childhood, everybody wanted to fly like a free bird and see things from an eye of a bird, paramotoring can give you the thrill of flying like one and get a chance to witness the landscape view.
The idea of paragliding gave birth to paramotoring. There is a motor which propels the wind whilst gliding because of which one can take-off from practically anywhere. There are two types of paramotoring; foot launch and wheel launch. The first one has a harness attached to a frame which in turn combines the harness with engine and propeller which is worn like a backpack. Wheel launch is suited for 2 occupants, as it includes a cart with 3 or 4 wheels.
People often get confuse paragliding with parasailing. It is not the same but in fact a variant. Parasailing is what you do at water bodies. The person is fastened to a high-speed boat with a harness. The speedboat accelerates, pulling the person at the rear and is suspended in the air with the help of a parachute. Parasailing can also be done on land with the help of a jeep, parasailers will be put into the harness that will be attached to parachute, they hold on to a rope and are towed at high speeds behind a vehicle. The parachute helps them to rise up in the air behind the vehicle.
Unlike paragliding, paramotoring doesn’t require hills or mountains to take-off and fly. A good mix of landscapes and slopes makes for a prospective location for this flying sport.

This sport has developed gradually and now many far on pilots which perform extreme maneuvers such as wing-overs, barrel rolls and loops. These types of movements present an attention worthy danger as any type of negative G’s encountered will unload the wing allowing the wings lines to go flapping. Only very advanced pilots with years of practical knowledge, training and matched with counteracts such as reserve parachutes should attempt such maneuvers.
A reserve parachute is an extremely recommended piece of equipment which may prevent noteworthy injury or death in the presence of a failure of the equipment or an error made by the pilot.
The paramotoring community in India is still small and there aren’t enough pilots to have competitions on a national scale.

There are rallies and expeditions happening that is making the community stronger and creating awareness.
