Q:  What are the wind limitations?
A:  During first flights and early training flights, it is imperative that the student fly in the calmest of wind conditions (0-5 mph). Once the student has learned the art of take off, landing, and maneuvering predictably through the air at low altitude, he/she can progress to handle winds of up to 15 mph. Beyond 15 mph. it becomes uncomfortable and dangerous to fly a powered parachute.

It can also be dangerous to fly in high winds at low altitudes. If you are maneuvering close to the ground in gusty conditions, or flying around obstacles that can create turbulence, it is important for you to remember that you are being supported by a flexible pressurized airfoil shaped bag of air; any significant turbulence from any source will effect your wing.
