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!

E 128 Steve English https://www.youtube.com/user/stephen1english

I grew up watching the birds from the moment I could form memories, always wishing I could be up there with them. I have memories of building model planes and white wings, playing in the backyard with foamies, watching the planes land and take off from Piper Memorial Airport in Lock Haven, PA, all with dad. We shared a fondness for aviation. In college, I pursued my pilot's license with the intent to fly commercially. Got my PPL in the summer between freshmen and sophomore year in 2004. It was one of the proudest moments of my life, the next day after my checkride, I took my dad up as my first passenger...3 months later, I lost him to lung cancer. Fast forward to 2018, I haven't flown since 2005 and I come across Tucker's flight to McDonald's. At that moment, my life took a turn for the better and I knew I had to get back into flying through this. Eventually, I dove in and signed up for training 2 years later at AviatorPPG, and had another extremely moving moment with my first solo there. It was Judson's first class when he was an intern and I remember the hug from him and the rest of my new family at the time. That was summer 2020, my silver lining of the year. Since then, I have flown almost every chance I could, while wanting to share the joy with the world through pics and vids. JP Tulo is a big inspiration for the type of quick, catchy content I like to mess around with. In May, this year, I experienced the shared deep sadness from the loss of a dear friend, Jeff Chorba. Anytime he wasn't there, the question my parabuddies and I always asked was "what's Jeff up to, is he coming?" He mentored us, he laughed with us, he inspired us to be better pilots. Coping with his loss has brought us NEPA fliers closer together. I often think about what Jeff once told me over the phone, "we know the risks, but we do it anyway because if we deprive ourselves of that which we love, we also deprive ourselves of life." He and my Dad now share the view through my eyes of the awe this sport has to deliver.

Ep 126 Jeremy Howe

Jeremy has always wanted to fly. He found paramotoring on YouTube’s recommended videos section while at Michigan State University in 2015. Over the years, his paramotor obsession grew & grew. He graduated university, got a job in corporate finance, & could finally afford to get into ppg. He signed up for paramotor training in May 2019 with Mike Cotter, Justin Fox, & Bob Harris of FlyMIPPG. After training he bought a Parajet Maverick with the Atom 80 and a 24M Ozone Mojo Pwr 1. He joined a local group of experienced paramotor people in Kankakee IL. He flew with them for a season and moved back home to Michigan. He’s been flying all over Michigan ever since. He currently flies his 24M Mojo Pwr 1 & 20M BGD Luna 2. He has ~150 flights (~100 hrs) and has taken a SIV with Andy Fuller & Bill Dolbow at Skylab. You can find him flying around metro Detroit, Michigan fly-ins, or on a yearly winter ppg trip to Florida. Jeremy has an Instagram account where he pretends to be cool like everyone else on social media. He posts a lot of paramotor pictures & clips there. @look.how.cool.i.am Talking points: -training (cost / benefit analysis of training vs self training) -glider selection -flying an atom 80 at 185lbs -experience at Skylab siv / throwing a reserve -flying progression -fly ins -trips to Florida -gear setup and accessories -safety and baby steps progression -flying over / around water -flying next to international borders -flying in winter / snow -landing in a farm field due to bad weather and hitch hiking back to my car -barely crashing into my car on launch -airbox falling off in flight -other mistakes I’ve made (sitting down too early on launch, butt landing, turtling, object fixation, catching a line in the prop after an aborted launch, friction knot after launch, flying with a broken kill switch) -favorite YouTube people -onewheels -other hobbies, snowboarding / snowboard racing, fishing, jet skies, traveling, disc golf, my dog. -flying from a busy airport & keeping lzs happy -pulling big ears -changing from polini throttle to offgrid aviation throttle / first impressions -anything economics / investing. i have a degree in finance and work at a big bank. -seeing (initially hearing) Lindy’s tandem flight at torchport Short term goals: -ppg2 / ppg3 ratings -use speed bar during ppg -wingtip bump -flying around a balloon festival next weekend / dbad -upgrade to a moster 185 -execute a paramotor video idea -fly over ocean beaches

Ep 125 Stephen Mintie - Hot Butter Steve -  https://www.youtube.com/c/HotButteredProductions

 

Personal Bio:  Air Force Brat.  Went to high school in Minot, ND.  Was a computer and book nerd growing up and wanted to get into science and engineering.  I took an Aeronautics class in high school and took the controls of a Cessna.  Also would compete in self propelled balsa wood aircraft building and while my peers would buy kits, I always designed my own and of course never won because of that!  I was always more of a rocketry type person.  Life took a 180 and I ended up going to the University of Minnesota for 7 years studying jazz performance and music education with the goal of becoming a teacher.  I'm a jazz and classical pianist, and I've done a lot of work with steel drums.  I don't do much music work anymore, but I do play in a classic rock style band.  After college, I did a 180 again and worked for and eventually became a superintendent of a large and busy funeral home and cemetery.  While there I skydived for the first time with a coworker who had terminal cancer.  I ended up breaking my tailbone on landing.  It was a great experience to share though and I actually personally dug her grave and buried her myself.  I currently am the account director and Google SEO analyst of a restroom and shower trailer company.  My current work has been extremely supportive of my endeavors in ppg and because I can work remote too, they allow me to fly just about whenever I want, and travel often for gatherings.  In general I'm kind of all over the place.  I read a lot of science, history, astrophysics, and world event type stuff.  I used to raise chickens and was into guerrilla gardening (basically planting huge green things all over the place).
Ppg Bio:  I got into ppg during a very difficult time in my life.  Within a year's time frame, I got a divorce and walked away from my career which I had my entire self identity wrapped into.   It absolutely killed me.  During that time I followed Trent Palmer and thought it'd be neat to fly the way he did, but never would I have the budget to afford a bush plane.  From there I started researching ultralights, and eventually found Tucker.  I told myself if things improved, I'd take it up as I could do it safely, and fly without a cockpit which really interested me.  Soon after, I found an awesome new job that paid me a lot more, appreciated me and gave me the freedom to pursue it.  I trained in April of 2021 with my much younger brother.  He wasn't even interested in ppg, he just wanted to share my adventure and turned out to be the best in the class.  Training was tough because of bad weather, and I actually got lines in the prop my first take off attempt, and it was my personal wing too.  After training, I didn't have a motor for over 4 months so I practiced ground handling the whole time which paid off when I returned to flight, because I didn't have to think about glider control not to mention I can easily launch in nil wind, or reverse in strong conditions.  I ended up not returning to the first school and joined the Nebraska Paramotor community.  My brother stopped pursuing ppg by that point.  I've been flying regularly since last August and during that time I've flown at EFD, Salton Sea including the nearby canyons, Glamis, Arizona Flying Circus, Ak-Chin, AZ copper mine, Dauphin Island, the Florida panhandle, and Bad Apples.  My current goal is to fly with purpose and practice and return to the fundamentals.  Right now I'm working on landing accuracy and I'll end every flight with a 1000 foot climb up, motor kill, and spot land.  Just recently started doing foot drags (which I told myself I wouldn't do, and now......... lol), big ears, and just starting to get into energy management a bit, barely scratching the surface though.  Hope to work on my PPG 3 by early next year.   I love flying and it's completely changed my life especially since I got into this as a destroyed person.  I love the community to.  I thought I was going to be a loner, but somehow someway managed to befriend a huge part of the community, by mostly just being my weird self.  I'm pretty gregarious, I enjoy laughter and not taking oneself too seriously, and my personality ranges from a quiet active listener to a loud type A personality if I'm in the right environment.  I started a Youtube channel prior, Hot Buttered Productions, which is a shared channel with my brother though he stopped making stuff.  I enjoy making content because it can be a canvas for many things such as just being weird, funny, expressing something that means a lot to me without words, or creating a window into slice of life segments to show what it's like for someone that has struggled with this too.  I openly talk about the struggles with the mental game, preflight anxiety, I was terrible at landings for a long while, just about anything so it's more relatable for your average person.
