Russ Bateman has been flying for nearly 30 years and in that time he's taught hundreds of students to fly ppg/paramotors. Are you ready to join our community?

Truth be told, there are MANY great schools/instructors out there. One thing that sets us apart is our HIGH ELEVATION (4500 ft). When you learn to fly here, you'll be prepared to fly anywhere!


So how does thetraining work? 

Do I Need Gear?

You don't need to have gear in order to start training. We will provide you with the necessary equipment to get started. Eventually, you will want your own gear and we can help you with that. We can assist with finding new or used gear for you.

How Long?

Our training typically takes 6 days. With each day of training, you will increase in skills and by the end of training, you will be ready to fly on your own. Many students are ready to solo on the 3rd day!

How Much?

We charge $2500 for the training course. Discounts are available if you purchase new gear from us. Training includes ground school, flight school, and use of our training gear & field. We can provide you with information regarding financing for new/used gear. Call/text 801-664-3319 if you have any questions.

How do I get started?

Are you ready to start this rewarding hobby?

If you’re serious about learning to fly, it’s almost certain that you’ll have a lot more questions than what we could fit on this website. Call or text us at 801-664-3319 and let’s chat about all the details.

Our training sessions typically last 6 days. Let’s coordinate what days work for you and we’ll see if we have any openings for upcoming sessions. Once we get you scheduled for training, we’ll start looking at all the logistics and we’ll plan everything together.

We’re committed to helping you get the most appropriate gear you’ll need according to your weight, height, physical ability, and where you’ll be flying. We can help you to fly with wheels or without wheels. Call/text to discuss your specific needs and wants. We look forward to hearing from you!


My paramotor journey

Follow in the footsteps of Nik Rasheta and hundreds of others who have trained with Russ Bateman at Utah Paramotor.


From past students

Russ is great to work with. I was mostly self-trained, but after an accident, I wanted to rebuild some confidence with an instructor. Understanding of my prior PPG experience, he focused only on what I still needed - making it enjoyable and cost effective for me. Just a good dude.

Josh Murdoch

Patient, determined and overly qualified! That’s how I would describe Russ Bateman. If you're not taught by him count yourself out for 1. Having fun and 2. Being involved in the worlds best sport! Russ has made learning to fly the best as he knows how to judge pace and skill just by being around you for 10 minutes!

Will Branson Worsencroft

I drove up from Arizona to learn how to fly with Russ. After a few days, I was ready to come back down to AZ and feeling confident to fly on my own. This has been such a rewarding hobby!

I've been flying for about 6 months now. Russ hooked me up with lessons and gear and I've been flying ever since. I would highly recommend anyone who's interested to check out Utah Paramotor and talk to Russ!

Scott Rowley

He taught me (a deaf student) how to fly a paramotor like a legend. Without any radio communication.

Michael Germain

I trained with Russ about 3 years ago and I'm so happy I did! I've been on several fun trips since then and I've learned a lot from each of those trips.
