Tom Tate is helping many people fly in their own ultralight aircraft inexpensively. He has created a system for helping people build their own powered paragliders quickly and easily. Tom wants to see everyone who has ever dreamed of flying realize that dream. He wants you to feel the joy of flying over the tree tops.

Tom Tate has recently launched a new web site,, to help and encourage those who have dreams of flying. It shows them the correct way to do it safely and inexpensively. He has been flying for many years and has flown powered paragliders in prominent air shows, including the Medford International Air Show. In 1994 he wrote the very first book on powered paragliding, Going Up in a Parachute.

Getting an ultralight, microlight or powered paraglider doesn’t have to be expensive, as some might think. "When I first dreamed of flying I had absolutely no money at all," says Tom. "But my wife convinced me that I had to go for my dream of flight. And thank God she did. I learned a lot. Flying has been life changing for me."

"Contrary to popular belief, it doesn't cost a lot to get started," claims Tom. "You can build your own high quality ultralight aircraft for under $2000. Which is really surprising until you realize how little there is to it." It isn’t necessary to buy an expensive aircraft to experience the freedom of flight. One thing Tom teaches is alternatives to buying expensive aircraft - you do have another option. Tate provides guidance for affordable options.

"I have learned that when it comes to getting your own ultralight aircraft having good information and resources makes all the difference in the world." Says Tom.

"The ultralight aircraft world is very competitive," says Tom. "But since I do not sell any completed powered paragliders or other ultralights I am happy to give you good advice on how to get flying inexpensively and safely. There is absolutely no reason to have to pay $10,000 to fly in your own aircraft."

Tom Tate wants to help people fly which is why he is giving away his book Going Up in a Parachute (which has sold for $29.95) for free right on his web site. For more information visit
