Paramotoring is an easy and safe form of powered aviation. The paramotor is a small aircraft where two engines are attached along with a paraglider wing and a parachute. The paramotor can fly at a speed of 30 to 50 km per hour and can fly at a height of 200 feet to 18,000 feet height. The speed of the paramotor also depends on the direction and speed of wind.
The Airport Authority of India, Commissionerate police and local administration has given permission to continue the paramotoring facility for one year period.
