A group of paramotorists were taking off from the beach at Cleveleys and flying along the cost.
The unit is worn like a large backpack to which a Paraglider is attached through carabiners
Power plants are almost exclusively small two-stroke internal combustion engines, between 80 cc and 350 cc
These engines are favored for their quick high r.p.m. thrust and low weight, using approximately 3.7 litres of fuel per hour depending on paraglider efficiency
Electrically powered units also exist, though flight duration is considerably limited on the battery's electrical capacity
