A Logical & Common Sense Approach To Paramotor Training!
Over the last 19 years, we have had the honor to train over 1062 students how to fly a paramotor!
In the process, we have worked hard to craft the perfect training approach to take someone from step 1 to 100 in the safest possible way.
At Super Training, we actually teach you how to fly BEFORE you fly! We help you build your SKILLS first and foremost that way you know what you are doing before you’re in the sky.
We do NOT just teach you a few basic things, chuck you into the sky, sell you gear, and send you on your way like other schools.
That’s just plain STUPID!
We spend 50-100 hours hands-on with you, ONE ON ONE, teaching you every single piece and part of how to fly that paraglider so that you ACTUALLY KNOW what you’re doing!
Super Training is often referred to as the “Navy Seal Training of paramotor training” because of how good our students are when they leave our class.
We don’t make “average” pilots… Every student that comes to Super Training leaves with 100% confidence in their ability to safely fly whenever they want to fly!

Dell Schanze Explains The Exact Differences Between Super Training & Other Schools
When You Buy Training You Buy Skill!
This is a big deal and often overlooked by newer pilots getting into the sport! NO TWO PARAMOTOR TRAINING’S ARE THE SAME!
When you buy/sign up for paramotor training you are basically buying skill from the instructor you are training with. Some instructors and schools will get you X amount of skill when others give you Y amount.
It’s extremely important that you take a really close look at who you are training with, where you are training, and the results of that paramotor training!
Here at Super Training, you are buying the highest level of skill possible to obtain in 10 days. It simply doesn’t get any better! With other 20 years of teaching experience and 1038 students trained, many of which you can watch on YouTube, you know without a doubt that you are getting some of the best training out there.
The cool thing with Super Training is that you can watch hundreds of REAL videos of our instructors and students at Super Training! You can watch first hand, students going from day 1-10.
There are no secrets to Super Training! We show it all which is extremely RARE for something like this! How often do you watch real training videos of other schools?
NOT the fufu well edited with music that looks cool kinda videos…
But the videos of the students putting in the work and building REAL SKILLS!
The one thing you are FOR SURE going to get at Super Training is a whole lot of skill. You are buying REAL SKILLS!
What Is Glider Control?
Glider control is the MOST IMPORTANT SKILL YOU NEED TO HAVE TO FLY A PARAMOTOR!
Glider Control is basically how well you can fly the glider.
How well can you keep control of it? Can you touch the wingtips to the ground without losing control? Can you run over there and over there without losing control of it? Can you do this or that and still keep control of it?
At Super Training the biggest thing we focus on is building TRUE glider control! We make sure that each and every student that comes through Super Training builds the skills so they don’t just “kinda” know what they are doing… But are a MASTER to the point that you never lose control of that glider no matter what is happening around you or to you!
We want each student to be PERFECT!
And it pays off big time! When students have real glider control to a level not seen across the industry, it makes it effortless for new pilots to get 100 or more flights in their first 10 days!
Every student is required to master each of the foundational glider control skills before they move on to the next one. Once you have mastered each of the glider control skills and have stopped losing control, we go flying!
With true skill comes true confidence! New students on their first flights have NO PROBLEM doing everything perfectly and nailing perfect launches one right after another because they mastered glider control BEFORE They took their first flight!
It’s a “no-brainer” to us, you master control first, and flying will be an easy second!
Now glider control is largely a reflex based skillset which means a few things! If you know anything about building reflex based skillsets, you’ll know that it’s all about PRACTICE!
To truly build reflexes you need to practice the same thing over and over and over again until it’s burned into your body’s memory!
And it’s not just about practice… It’s about perfect practice! Because if you practice wrong, you build the reflexes wrong!
SO in order to actually learn how to fly a paramotor you need 2 things:
1. The right instructor
2. The right location
Your Instructor, Dell Schanze:
When you are building a skill as fine tuned and in depth as flying a PARAMOTOR you need to make sure that the person standing there next to you knows what the heck they are DOING!
You can’t learn from some random “Jimmy Bob” who’s flown a time or two because they won’t know how to hand off the skills to you!
It’s important when you are just starting to learn that you don’t start to build bad habits.
You don’t want to spend hours learning something wrong only to have to spend many more hours unlearning it and relearning it correctly…
Which means you have to have someone there helping you who has YEARS of experience and full understanding of that glider to a T.
At Super Training you are literally learning from one of the best paramotors pilots in the world, Dell Schanze!
Dell started flying back in 1998 and before long was one of the leading pilots in the world!
Since then he has gotten over 11,000 flights and has done everything you can imagine from long cross country flying to hard acro maneuvers and more!
He has also gone on to set multiple world records, won several glider control championships and many other WPPGA championships too!
He is insanely good and he is even better at passing off those skills to his students!
Don’t just take my word for it, brose the 1000+ YouTube videos we have where Dell shows over and over again just how good he is, and what it’s like to actually learn from him!
The Right Location
When learning to fly a paramotor you need to spend 50-100 hours practicing controlling it like a big kite!
I’m sure you’ve seen in the videos of our students standing on the ground in a harness hooked up to a glider.
That’s called kiting and kiting is how you learn how to fly a paramotor!
The best part about paramotors is that you learn how to fly them on the GROUND not in the SKY! Which means it’s also extremely safe!
In order to get 50-100 hours of practice, you need 50-100 hours of WIND!
The main problem with learning somewhere inland like SLC, Utah where we live, is that the wind DOESN’T BLOW!
That means you can either run 7mph for 50 hours or you go somewhere like the beach of Corpus Christi, Texas, where the wind blows all day every day!
Which is exactly why we do the training in Corpus Christi, Texas! Because down in Texas the wind blows all day which gives you the PERFECT conditions to train in!
If we tried to do the training anywhere else, where there was no wind, you wouldn’t learn a dang thing!
We would spend most of our time sucking our thumbs and watching the clouds…
But instead, since we go down to Texas where the wind blows all day every day, we can spend 5-10 hours a day on the beach, hands on with you teaching you EVERYTHING!
1062 Students And Counting
We have trained a lot of people throughout the years and we are always seeking out criticism to improve the training. Over the last 20+ years and 1062 students, we have worked it into an exact science. A copy and paste system we use every class to make our students “superhero’s” of the sky in only 10-days!
To keep up classes smaller and more personal for students we only take 12 students per class. That way Dell and the other instructors can spend enough time with each student to build those “superhero” skills! We typically fill up each class about 30-60 days in advance.

What Our Students Have To Say!
Super Training is a true “No Brainer” for anyone looking to get into flying paramotors!
“All the way from the UK
I would not hesitate in recommending whatsoever I went out for 10 days of training in November 2019 the training is phenomenal I have learned so much As a newly qualified free flight paragliding pilot my main reason for going out was for glider control the skills I have now would give MOST a run for their money. Super Training all the way”
“I have over a year on the flat top now. I love it. I have abused and crashed and done everything you can imagine on the thing. It’s incredibly durable incredibly safe and so much fun”
“If you want to take to the skies confidently with the safest overall configuration possible then Flat Top Paramotors and Super Training are essential. The gear is robust, light, and masterfully crafted yet simple enough for a child to operate and maintain. Some of my fondest memories are my first flights, the lifetime of friendships, and the wealth of knowledge I’ve tapped into. Most like a runner isn’t worried about their shoes during a race I don’t have to worry about a Flat Top during flight. A million thanks to Super Dell, Super Trevor, and family for the gift of flight and Super powers!“
“Dell and Trevor did not only trained me very well, but inspired me to become a focused and safe pilot through the right and diligent training to be able to master the glider through all kind of wind and weather conditions. Also after the training I was and I still am always very well taken care of for all kind of help, questions or equipment which I had and still have.”
“I was trained by Trevor and Dell about 5 years ago. At that time I bought a Flattop Ninja and a Medium Dominator wing. Since then I’ve bought a second motor and a XXS wing. I fly with confidence nearly every week back home in Upstate NewYork. I have never had any issues with my equipment. It has been rock solid. And I have the skills that give me confidence to fly alone in all kinds of conditions. In my opinion, it’s the best training and equipment out there.“
“Amazing!!! Thank You Dell Schanze and the Super Training team!! What an awesome 10 days you get to experience with the best paramotor pilot “alive” you will get to learn how to keep complete control of your glider which give you the confidence you need to keep safe and having fun while gaining more experience in the sky. No skills = fear and trust me it will be scary as f..k up there all alone in the sky without the proper knowledge and skills you get drilled into you during super training. “Seriously get Super Training” and the best safest gear!! Highly recommended!!“
“I have been flying my FlatTop with a Vittorazi 185cc for approx 7 years now. I am thoroughly impressed with the construction methods utilized on this durable unit. This paramotor has set the industry standard for safety features and will continue to save lives. If you are looking for the safest of units out there then look no farther!”
“I am farily new to the sport of Paramotoring, but not entirely new. I have gone through several iterations of training and yes Dell Schanze and Flattop Paramotors is one. I originally owned a Parajet Maverick. It seemed to be a good Paramotor until I had a hard landing which made me re-think everything I had learned about the sport to that point. Long story short to me the Maverick is flimsy compared to the Flattop. I was told before all this that the Flattop was just a big heavy tank. Well my Flattop weighed in when I unboxed it at exactly 56lbs. My Maverick weighed in at 54lbs. Not a big difference. However the strength of the Flattop is unparalleled to the some 15-18 Paramotors I have looked at since. It seemed a bit bulky at first because it is built to give you protection under the seating area and it is a bit wider than the others I have seen and it has fixed hang points with comfort bars instead of swing arms. Once I learned how to adjust the harness that does not have as much padding as the Maverick the bulkiness of the Flattop seemed to diminish a lot. Then once I got good control of the glider, once it was overhead there was no difference than my previous Paramotor. Not until I got into the air. The comfort was the same if not better, because I did not feel trapped in the harness, I have plenty of room to move around and to my discovery this ability and room gives me a lot more control of the glider without the need of a lot of brake input. This weight shift authority seems a lot better than my previous paramotor as when I used weight shift before I really had to lean into it because the swing arm would come up and cancel out some of my lean input. Not so with the fixed comfort bars of the Flattop, and shifting is easy as all I need to do is use my elbows to pull me over to the side I need and they just happen to be right there at the comfort bars. The fixed comfort bars also make me feel more secure in the harness than previously. During training I saw the flattop get dropped, turtled and go through hard landings. Not one of them was damaged at all. Not the frame, not the prop and not the pilot. The new Minari 200R motor really seems to outshine my previous Vittorazi 185 plus. It is easy to crank, easy to tune, and the break in was a breeze. It also seems to have more thrust than my Vittorazi did. All in all the more I get to use my Flattop the more I like it. Especially compared to my previous experience. Like I said at the first of this review, I am fairly new and I am no paramotor guru, nor do I claim to know a lot, I am just giving my personal opinion based on my experiences in the sport and I am well aware of all the differences in opinion about the Flattop. I had a life changing incident that made me re-think everything about the sport and safety became top priority to me and my new perspective allowed me to see through all the differences in opinion out there and make a decision based off of my own needs and thoughts and leave the differences where I found them on various web sites. In the end I am very happy I went with the Flattop. It’s fits my needs and gets me into the air.“
