Powered Paragliding Training With Team Fly Halo (Video)

This past August, Team Fly Halo added three new pilots to the sport of powered paragliding. It was really special being apart of their dream to fly. Team pilot Shane put together this video of our training, it really captures the vibes and fun we all had. It was an unforgettable time. Great job once again to Andy, Scott and Ryan!

Our training is more than just putting students in the air.   People that share the passion we do become instant friends for life, it really is an incredible experience! Flying like this will change your life forever.

Introducing The Polini Thor 250 Water Cooled Paramotor Engine

parajet thor 250

New for the 2013 season is yet another ground breaking engine design from Polini.     After having major success with the 200 Thor this year, Polini has designed an even better engine.  This new engine is 250cc’s and produces a whopping 36+ horsepower. The Polini Thor 250  is only .5 kgs heavier than the 200!    It will feature the same balanced crankshaft that creates a near vibration free experience just like the 200.

This new engine will be ideal for trike pilots, tandem pilots or even light weight aircraft.  We’ll have some Thor 250 equipped Parajets soon as well as a trike setup that will be ideal for this new engine.
