Hello all !

 

I'm Loïc from France and soon, I will realise a kid dream...I'll visit USA ! 😍😃

 

With 5 buddies, we're all motorized paraglider pilots and we prepare a road trip. We looking for a lot of fun and nice places for fly and off course, Dumont Dunes and you are a perfect way to found a lot of fun !

 

We are happy to come but for us, it's very important to respect the rules, that's why I'd like to ask you some questions :

 

- Is that possible to fly with a motorized paraglider in Dumont Dunes ? I've seen a lot of vidéos but I want to be sure.

 

- We will come with rv's, I've seen there is a fee for camping for the OHV pilots but if we're not OHV pilots, should we paid too ?

 

Thanks for your future answers !

 

We are very happy to come for discover Dumont Dunes and we wish you will accept us in your World.

 

Best regards from France ! 

 

Loïc

Yes there is a fee to camp and I believe there is a ticket booth at the entrance where you can purchase a pass as far as your paraglider you would have to call the BLM in Barstow to clarify if you can fly but I see them out there all the time

Welcome! Each RV or vehicle that enters will need a pass whether you are a pilot, driver, duner, or just a camper. I see guys flying there all the time. I don't believe you need any special permit. Like turbo_bruce said, maybe call BLM just to be sure. 760-252-6000

 

I reached out to a pilot buddy of mine. Hopefully he can chime in with more info about flying there.

Last time I looked at a sectional for the area the airspace is considered class "G" up to 1500', where it then becomes an M.O.A.(military operations area). 

 

You shouldn't have any restrictions.

Awesome

You should keep this sight updated.  That is a great time of year at Dumont, still a little Hot, yet nice.

Folks might come out to meet you folks and watch the flying 🙂

Impressionnant

Vous devez garder cette vue à jour. C'est une excellente période de l'année à Dumont, toujours un peu chaude, mais agréable.

Les gens pourraient sortir pour vous rencontrer et regarder les vols 🙂

IrnBear

Really ? Cool ! I wasn't sure about the temperature in this period Thanks for the inquiries !

 

I've a specialized Youtube channel about paramotor in France. If you want take a look https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXoN88ch_kLndzfc5jw6epw?view_as=subscriber

I think to take-off and fly-over to the North Pole if it's possible ! 😁
