One Student’s Training Journey With BlackHawk Paramotors:

Our Location:

Our Oklahoma Training location features unobstructed “open terrain” for endless exploration. It’s the perfect place for students to take their first flight! There are many benefits of training INLAND, rather than on the coast. Most people live inland – where the winds and thermals aren’t as consistent or forgiving as “coastal instruction” settings. This ensures that students will be ready and confident to fly on their own when they get back home. Our Training Center is located just minutes from Lake Texoma which is one of the most beautiful lakes in the area. We’re also just a 5 minute drive from multiple hotels, restaurants, and a Casino Resort. Our main facility (The Durant Regional Airport) was recently built and features several classrooms that are available for students to study the course material. Staff is always available at the Airport, so feel free to stop by and say hello! Training is held here 7 days a week, 365 days out of the year to accommodate student’s schedules. Students begin by learning the finer points of “Ground Handling” or “Kiting.” This process may take several days depending on the student’s progression. We are a full-service Training Center, therefore offering machine maintenance on site, and have parts readily available for customers.

What is Included With Paramotor Training?

This is a COMPLETE course to learn the “ins and outs” of Powered Paragliding. Our Paramotor Course will provide all the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and confidently fly on your own. We cover everything you will need to know about the equipment, properly setting up for a successful launch, how to stay safe in the air, and how to land. We will cover the fundamentals of basic machine maintenance, weather conditions, and many little “tricks” that would take years to acquire on your own. Class size is limited to ensure a one-on-one quality experience, so please call to reserve your spot. If you are rusty and haven’t flown in a while, we also offer FREE refresher courses to our students. We are here to serve you now and support you in the future!
