E138 Josh Marsh

Joshua Marsh I'm 35 years old and have a family of seven with one being my granddaughter. Before you try to do the math, no, I didn't start that early. My wife is 10 years older and brought two kids into the relationship. I'm an Army vet and an adrenaline junkie. I'm getting my adrenaline fix by being a paramotor pilot and starting to skydive. Just a small back story. Since my first airplane flight ever, leaving basic training to go to AIT, I knew I wanted to fly. A couple of years ago I finally figured out what I wanted to do. I wanted to fly a paramotor. I have to credit Tucker Gott with that fascination. Well I started saving. I took a class and got in my ground training and the next step would be to buy a setup to complete training. The start of 2021 I had saved up nearly $7k to go buy my first paramotor setup. A family member fell ill and was unable to care for herself, so we moved her in with us, so we could care for her. Unbeknownst to me, someone scanned her debit card information into their phone and drained over $7000 from her bank account. I had to use the money that I had saved up to replace what was in her account so she wouldn't lose any of her assets. At the same time I built a successful business, Rocket City Mushrooms L.L.C., and turned around and sold it for profit. This lead to me being able to buy my first setup. Top80 came from Neil at Aviator PPG and 29m ITV Baja came from Brad Roper at Southern Utah Paramotor. As soon as I got home with my paramotor, my wife met me at the door with a piece of paper and said sign this. What was it? It was,in fact, a life insurance policy. 😂 And yes, it covered accidental during flight. Well I went back to kiting and took some training and finally got in the air on Mother's Day 2022. I'm still fairly new to this sport, with only 30 flights as of writing this, but there is a lot of passion and so much left to learn. Finally I want to say thank you for having me and thank you to my wife. My wife is the one that has to put up with my crazy adrenaline seeking attitude and my expensive hobbies https://www.youtube.com/c/JoshuaMarshPPG

I'm a software engineer, I'm from Romania. For the last two years I've been living in my RV trailer, traveling USA, working, flying PG and PPG, kiteboarding, hiking, canyoning, surfing, whatnot. I did my PPG training with Midwest Parajet in 2019 and I have P3 free flight rating. I have equal passion for both PG and PPG, and traveling around allowed me to fly diverse, sometimes spectacular landscapes. Canyons, mountains, lakes, desert, dunes, beaches. My favorite state in US so far: Utah. Came in for 2 weeks to get my free flight rating with Cloud 9, one year later I was still in Utah. There's so much natural beauty, so much to explore in the state. I'm sharing this amazing adventure with my wife, Manuela. She flies too, but mainly PG, the motor is a bit heavy for her. Right now we're crossing California, slowly heading towards Lake Tahoe, where my biggest future adventure begins mid September: I subscribed for the Wingman Challenge, 1100 miles on paramotor.

E129 -Travis Landry- I was born and raised in Austin Tx. I'm 35, and currently own a welding business with my brother as a primary income. I am an electrician, musician, skateboarder, motorcyclist, artist, and many other things. I began paramotoring in March of 2019. Quickly began helping Ron teach kiting, flew over 300 times in my first year, got a PPG3 rating, and began an apprenticeship as an instructor. Currently I have helped train over 150 students and hold instructor ratings, and tandem exemptions thru the USPPA and ASC. The emotional intensity of launching and landing a student on their first few flights is a rush like no other. As instructors, we live for those reactions, and the variety of emotions that pour from the students in these precious moments. I was influenced in aviation by my grandfather who flew B17's in ww2, as well as my uncle that flew huey's in Vietnam, also another uncle who was an avid ultralight pilot. We used to go to airshows and since I could remember I've always wanted to fly, but the dream seemed too grand. As of today, I am the only one of my generation in the family to fly any craft. I truly never expected to become a teacher of anything, and somehow it found me anyway. I'm unbelievably grateful to have been pulled into this community. I'd say it saved me, when I didn't know I needed saving. The people are truly everything in this sport! Currently I'm awaiting a student pilot's license in the mail and plan to fly fixed wing as well as butt fans! I'm extremely lucky to have a friend who is teaching me to fly a plane out of our home airport. I'm here to share the dream and the flying love with anyone who will listen to me. This sport changes lives, attitudes, and perspectives, for many, forever!
