Paramotoring Equipment

In terms of technological equipment, Paramotoring pilots require a variometer, a device that indicates the climb or drop rate, as well as the altitude; a radio; and possibly a GPS system.

It is also important that the appropriate clothing is worn. Multiple layers of light clothing are better than a couple of layers of thick clothes.

Wearing a windproof jacket as a top layer is a good idea. Make sure that you put on a pair of gloves in colder weather.

The right footwear is essential as well, but is easily overlooked. Pilots are advised to wear trainers or hiking boots with ankle support, which will offer more protection during the landing.
