Step 18

During your first flight you will have an opportunity to view the countryside unlike any other means of flight. Not only is your view unobstructed your speed is approximately 30 MPH which gives you plenty of time to take in the sites. And flying a powered parachute is very simple:

To climb - increase throttle
To descend - reduce throttle
To turn left push the left steering bar
To turn right push the right steering bar

The usual introductory training flight is about 20 to 30 minutes long and it goes by quite fast.
Unfortunately, it is time to find the field and prepare our approach for landing. The field can be seen in the photo above.
