As members of the Paramaniacs Paragliding and Paramotor club, we have a formal structure within which we can participate and grow the sport we all so dearly love and enjoy.
For those of you out there who don’t have a clue what we are about, herewith just a bit of background info - The idea of our own club was conceived in June 2013 during a “Parawaiting” session on top of the mountain in Barberton. We wanted to have a club with a unique culture; a group of like-minded friends with whom to break away from every day’s responsibilities and worries, even if only for a couple of hours at a time.
We are based at “The Bay” on the R512 close to Pecanwood Estate. We are very proud of the fact that we can offer a safe, relaxed and fun environment for PPG, PPC, as well as PG winching and flying from our nearby ridge. We have a clean ablution facility, kitchen, shaded deck and braai area where we can reminisce around a braai fire with a few cold lemonades after a day’s exciting flying…..
The aims of Paramaniacs are very simple. We are a group of enthusiasts who want to see our sport grow in a fun, yet safe and responsible manner. We strive for and encourage our members to actively promote all aspects of our sport. Paramaniacs Club focuses on the social and fun elements of the sport. Mentorship is an important part of flying with other senior club members.
Become a fellow Paramaniac by joining our club today!! A more colourful (Read slightly mad/fun) bunch of guys and girls you will not find, that we can guarantee! We are eager to welcome you in our midst and share our Paramaniacs culture with you.
