Paratrike: The new flight experience in Costa Verde – Lima – Peru
The paratrike is a two-seater motorized three-wheeled vehicle with a rear propeller that allows it to gain speed. To give you a general idea, it is a mixture of light aircraft and paragliding, which offers the best sensations and advantages of both disciplines.. ¡Guaranteed intense emotions!
Many paragliders find it difficult to find a large drop to be able to take flight. An attempt was made to solve this inconvenience by equipping the person with a propeller on his back that generated an additional impulse to the paraglider’s legs (this discipline was called paramotoring).
Later, someone came up with the idea of incorporating a cart to avoid carrying so much weight on the back and also avoid physical effort during takeoff and landing. This is how the paratrike was born, which combines the lightness of paragliding with the comfort of a small plane.
As if it were a plane, the paratrike starts from a flat track and the rear propeller allows it to gain momentum to rise. Being a vehicle with small wheels, being seated so close to the ground causes a feeling of high speed before the driver (always sitting behind) uses the glider’s control lines to take flight. Both takeoff and landing are done in optimal safety conditions. The grace of the paratrike is that the motor allows a lot of freedom of movement in direction and height, while the paraglider, in general, must submit to air currents.
