We are elated to announce a new partnership with the legendary Eric and Elisabeth DuFour of Paratour. Eric had been instructing paramotor pilots for over 23 years and is a pioneer of the sport in the U.S. His amazing breadth of experience and skill, from competition, expedition, innovation, design and training mastery has set the benchmark for paramotor schools around the world. Elisabeth, a USPPA certified PPG3 paramotor pilot and a magnificent seamstress, she has been supporting the community for years in the fine art of glider repair and inspections.
Eric has been been imparting his expertise during on-site consults with our instructors and is reviewing our overall training program. He will continue helping us to assimilate the best techniques he's perfected during his two plus decades of full time paramotor instruction.
In addition, we here at Aviator PPG are very excited to announce that we are now offering training, sales, and support for the full line of Air Conception paramotors, a newer but well established brand that for 6-years now has offered the best power to weight ratio machines in the world, with excellent reliability, safety, great looks, outstanding support, and a very economical price. These amazing machines weigh just 38-47 lbs, all-up with harness, including the electric start/clutched model, while putting out gobs of reliable thrust well suited for foot launchers up to 230 lbs. We are still committed and very happy with the other brands we offer, but also positive that the super light weight and powerful Air Conception motors will help our students get in the air faster and achieve more flights over their training period without being as strained.
This new motor option offers a more economical option for those ready to purchase their own motor. Presently, we have 5 new Air Conception motors in our showroom (representing the complete model line) as well as nice used models available. Come by the shop and try one of these on before they are sold, we're sure that you'll "see the light"... The lack of weight is truly amazing.
Again, we are both excited and truly honored to be working with Eric and Elizabeth DuFour, two absolute professionals and long time assets to our sport and community... And we are thrilled to share this new line of high quality, affordable, and light paramotors to our family of customers.
