Powered paragliding is also known as paramotoring or PPG.

During this type of ultralight aviation, the pilot wears a back-mounted motor (a paramotor). This delivers enough thrust to take off using a paraglider. It can be launched in still air and on level ground by the pilot.

Yesterday, a few intrepid fliers were seen on the shore at Ainsdale heading off to Formby Point.

Others decided on a more conventional mode of flight.
