Preparing for the Icarus
There are probably a couple of things to figure out before you take on the world's toughest air race. Such as what socks to wear or how to actually fly these things. Other questions you might have will be more like, "how do I get everything I need to weigh less than a slice of toast?"

Planning your route
With our un-course you're free to approach the adventure in many different ways.
To help make sure you have some grasp of what is being undertaken every pilot gets a route briefing with our team of experts. We will look at what you're planning and give you an opinion on whether you're mental or not.
What machine works best?
Turns out this is more political than Donald Trump and Putin oiling up for a swimwear comp. People seem to get all weirdy when it comes to which paramotor is the Don. We don't really give a shit what you bring. Unless it will obviously kill you, like a lawnmower sellotaped to kitchen chair.
Modifications: Some work - some less so. Getting an extra tank for fuel and oil is an obvious one.
