Paramotoring Over Bozeman – My New Favorite Video
There's not much to say about this video of dudes paramotoring over Bozeman except, I want to do this. Badly.
What is paramotoring? The video really shows it all but here's what Wikipedia says:
Paramotor is a generic name for the propulsive portion of a powered paraglider ("PPG"). It consists of a frame that combines the motor, propeller, harness (with integrated seat) and cage. It provides two attachment points for the risers of a paraglider wing that allows for powered flight.
The term was first used by Englishman Mike Byrne in 1980 and popularized in France around 1986 when La Mouette began adapting power to the then-new paraglider wings.
Pilots who fly these engage in paramotoring, also known as powered paragliding.

My buddy Beau Gumbert and I flying around different parts of Bozeman, MT over a course of 5 days. We were also joined by paragliding and paramotor instructor of Bozeman Paragliding Andy Macrae.
If anyone knows how I can get into this.....let me know :-)
