As a powered paraglider pilot of several years experience, it seems right for me to now have a chance to review Paratour.com... Paratour is a company owned and operated by world famous PPG champion Eric Dufour and his amazing wife (and astounding pilot in her own right) Elisabeth Guerin. I had the pleasure of meeting both 8 years ago when I began flight instruction under Eric's skilled tutelage...
To be clear, the aircraft we're talking about here is the mixture of a paraglider (elliptical parachute with excellent glide ratios) and a motor (engine, propeller, cage assembly wrapped together as a backpack). It is the lightest of ultralights, usually tipping the scales somewhere near 100lbs total. It is one of the most affordable and personal forms of flight.
One word - Awesome.
The place to see more about powered paragliding - paratour.com...
The place to get expert training on this awesome form of flight - paratour.com
The place to buy gear you need - paratour.com... well maybe.
That's another nice thing about Paratour (aside from the fact that they're French-Canadian, and have a great way of saying things), they might promote a product (and believe you me they're got some of the best) but Eric & Elisabeth know that if something's not right for you it's not something they should sell you. They'll point you towards what you need. They truly are two of the best faces of this sport.
Good people to do business with, they stand behind their service and products.
