This Paramotor Coast to Coast record attempt will travel over 2200 miles along the Southern part of the United States. Like any cross country flight it requires planning and must consider fuel range, weather and emergency landings.

Paramotors typically fly around 60-80 miles on a single tank of fuel which can take about 2 hours. With a larger fuel tank we were able to fly than 100-120 miles per flight without TailWind Consideration. We expected to cover 200-300 miles per day, and ultimately averaged 265 miles per day.
- Best Distance in a Day: 384.1 miles (day 3)
- Least Distance in a Day: 175.9 (day 2 – 2 flights)
- Average Distance per Day: 265 miles
Our planning map below includes Fuel Stops, Checkpoints and alternative airports to land.
