Parapro has been organising paramotor tours for 15 years. This included attempting to fly the length of NZ with a group of overseas pilots as well organizing a flying tour in the South Island for 37 international motor pilots – basically a flying circus.

Dave Dennis, owner of Parapro with 30 years of teaching professionally, New Zealand’s first Paramotor rated instructor and organizer of previous high profile Paramotor tours is your guide.

With a wealth of experience and local site knowledge he will guide you around the South Island’s best Paramotoring areas.

For those that have years of experience, the tour will provide opportunities to explore majestic landscapes and untouched coastlines available to the paramotor pilot.

Learning does not stop once you have obtained your paramotor rating. If fact you have just started.
