Powered flight is one of the easiest ways to access the air. With appropriate equipment and conditions you can really maximize your time aloft. Imagine driving 10-15 minutes to your favorite field. Another 10 minutes to set up your aircraft and then take to flight. Cruise around the valley for a couple of hours, head back to your vehicle and be home in time for dinner. Morningside offers complete PPG training, sales and service. We have chosen to work with a few reputable Paramotor manufactures to suit a wide range of pilots. Please stop in or sign up. We will keep you up longer!
Paramotor (PPG) Training Programs
New to paramotor and now you own one? We can safely get you in the air using your new or used gear. Unfortunately, we see lots of people buying equipment with minimal guidance from some guy on the internet. Paragliding and Paramotoring is deceptively easy but beware mistakes are costly. Come to us first for training or sales and you will save some money and get it done right!

Note: Aside from our pre-planned powered paragliding fly-ins, we cannot freely accommodate recreating powered paragliding pilots. Our airfield is an ideal place for training, but there are circumstances requiring us to limit the amount of non-training related motor activity on the property. Please call if you’re a certified PPG pilot just looking for a place to fly, we can help direct you to the right place.
