Mike's Paramotoring Pictures

Here are some pictures I have taken during my powered paragliding flights.  These are selected shots taken since April 2001.   Later pictures, organized and sequenced by flight, are on nowland2.tripod.com.

Most of these were taken with an Olympus C700 digital camera.

A paraglider is a fabric wing with an open leading edge.  Air coming into the openings makes the wing keep its shape.  A number of strong lines attached to the wing hold a fabric chair that the pilot sits in.  Some paraglider pilots use a backpack motor that allows them to gain altitude at will.  These wing and motor combinations are called powered paragliders, or paramotors.  To learn more about them, search for "powered paraglider", in quotes, in your favorite search engine.  For those who are familiar enough with PPG to want to know, my motor is a Fresh Breeze 122 with a Sup-Air Wingman harness, and my wing is a Silex large.  If you have questions or comments, I can be reached by email at mjnowland@yahoo.com.
