Powered Paragliding is the most modern and accessible form of powered aviation available today! These foot-launched aircraft can fit into a suitcase, assemble in minutes and launch a pilot from a local field, beach or small airstrip to thousands of feet into a vast ocean of air. Once there…… you can remain for hours ……..just “riding the sky!”
Personalized human flight has been a dream for many their whole life. Unfortunately, for many, the dreams of flight as children grow into to the realities of being an adult……..along with the cost and time that aviation can consume. It leaves too many on the ground looking up.
Morningside’s Powered Paragliding program can bring those dreams to reality for most anyone. With the proper instruction, techniques and equipment….its not as expensive, hard or as risky as you might think. With a total $$ investment for gear and training that is a fraction of the cost of any other form of powered flying…… combined with a commitment of as little as a 7-12 days……you can see why PPG is fast becoming many aviation enthusiasts holy grail. Is it time for you to live your dreams?
Kitty Hawk Kites and Morningside have long been leaders in teaching the world to fly. We’ve been making those dreams come true since 1974. Our facilities and instructors have safely introduced thousands upon thousands of pilots and enthusiasts to Hang Gliding and Paragliding since the sports beginnings. We are also one of a very few full time Paramotor training schools in the US. We operate primarily from our historic flight park in Charlestown, New Hampshire. We train 7 days a week from MAY through OCT with classes booking weekly.
Our school uses the most tested and standardized methods for safely teaching and progressing students through their first unforgettable flights! Many of our students arrive to us with little if any aviation knowledge. Our experienced and professional instructors are USPPA certified. We specialize in a systematic approach that starts at the beginning and helps make learning fun! We build only on successes and we won’t move you faster than you feel comfortable. Our instructors care deeply about helping create lifelong pilots with safe attitudes and skills.
Our complete training program graduates students who are prepared to fly solo. You will have trained with the most current equipment using the most up to date techniques. We aim for you to take away from the program; the knowledge, skills and strategies for safe solo flying.
Our complete facility offers full training courses, retail sales, motor repair and support.
Please check out our Training Page for info on our training packages.
Note: Aside from our pre-planned powered paragliding fly-ins, we cannot freely accommodate visiting 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.
