Q:  Can I fly before I buy?
A:  If you are not completely sure you want to commit to the purchase of a Para-Cycle, we offer a one-on-one training course which includes instruction up to and including the first solo flight. This is done with two-way radios, and includes an extensive ground school. This is followed with taxi practice, kiting of the chute practice, and several aborted takeoffs (to get accustomed to how the chute should look and feel prior to committing to flight). The session ends with the student flying in the "pattern" for about fifteen minutes, making two attempted landings, and finally a real landing.

The cost of this course is $500; it can usually be done in one day or two days at the most. We admit this price is high, but unfortunately we have found it necessary to separate the serious prospects from the people who just want to "joyride." If you seriously think this might be the sport for you, we will gladly apply the $500.00 towards the purchase of a Para-Cycle, as long as that purchase takes place within three months of your training course.
