From: Tom Tate

Dear Friend,

I know exactly how it feels to want to fly so bad that you can taste it. I spent most of my teenage years either dreaming of flying or my perfect girl. Now I have a wonderful wife and my own aircraft. I cannot help you with the girl but I want to help you with the aircraft. :-)

Have you ever dreamed of flying? I mean really flying - like a bird - not in some huge steel contraption, but flying by just strapping something to your back and lifting off, feeling the wind against your skin, zooming over the treetops and seeing the world in all of its splendor before you. If you have ever dreamed of flying like this, then I want to make your dream come true just like I did for myself.

Oh I know how challenging it is to get flying! I mean give me a break does the average person have $7000 to drop for an aircraft. And why should you drop $7000 when you can build your own for under $2000 with good used components.

Me at the Medford International Airshow

Me at the Medford International Airshow

How do you know I can really Help get YOU off the ground?

Reason One:
I have been in the Ultralight aviation business for 17 years.

Reason Two:
I wrote the very first book on the Sport of Powered Paragliding and over 20,000 people have learned about Powered Paragliding from my book.

Reason Three:
Not only have I thoroughly tested the design, but I have thoroughly tested the plans as well. I took my plans to another builder and had him use them to build me an aircraft, which I have used for airshow flying.

It seems that everywhere I've looked, all I've found is company after company trying to pass off the same old, high priced aircraft and training packages, as a "revolutionary" new plane.

And the shocking part is, they're all selling the same darn thing:

        They promise you an aircraft for $5000-$6000 but do not tell you that you still need a canopy for $3000 and their personal training package for $2000.
Your total is usually over $10,000.

... But give me a break! Are they going to make your dream of flying come true? Of course not! This stuff is just too complicated and expensive.

  1. What you REALLY need is the ability to... Easily Build Your Aircraft
      You can build it in a week. Guaranteed!

  2. Work from a simple and inexpensive design.
      You can build it for under $2000.

  3. Quickly Learn to fly safely.
      You can learn to fly yours in a weekend.

  4. Easily take your aircraft where you want to fly.
      The entire aircraft disassembles to fit in your car trunk or on an airline.

  5. Build a High Quality Aircraft.
      Something that will give you years of joyous flight.

  6. Get a great sense of accomplishment!
      You get an amazing sense of accomplishment having built your own aircraft!
      I have found that people are very impressed when they find out that
      you have built and flown your own aircraft!!

  7. To join the elite rank of pilot.
      Very few people ever fly their own aircraft. You can be one of the few who
      ever experience the true joy of soaring over the hills and tree tops.

    ... and you want it to be EASY!

I know how much I wanted to fly. And I know how difficult it was to find good information to help me get in the air cheaply and safely. I decided that if I wanted to fly that much so must other people. How strong is your desire to fly? And how frustrated are you?

The average person never gets past the major hurtles to get airborne.

You want THREE things:
  • You want to get your own aircraft cheaply
  • You want enjoy flying through the air when ever and where ever you want.
  • You want to fly safely

     ... All of which are perfectly reasonable demands!

So I decided to develop a system to help people with these exact same frustrations. It took me and some friendly engineers 4 months to make the prototype plus 7 months of tweaking to make the plans.

I took my personal "wish list" of features and needs and created a one of a kind system to help you build and fly your own aircraft. Not only does it include the same plans used to build my current aircraft but the total package also contains many new features the help get you flying even more smoothly.

First, I want to tell you about the powerful advanced features that set The Parapropter Plans Package apart from ANY other plans or aircraft...

I am no longer running this business. This is now just here to show an example of what was my first ever online business.

My clumsy hands will make your life a lot easier

I have to admit that while I am a good engineer I am terrible with my hands. My birdhouses look like ugly packing crates. So I decided that one of the key elements in the Parapropter design had to be that it was very easy and quick for anyone to build.

Your Plans come as full sized 24 by 36 inch Professional blueprints.
This makes it easy to read and understand the plans. Your blueprints show all the parts actual size with except the cage which is 1/4 scale.

Showing the parts actual size means that you do not have to imagine what they will be like. You can normally just line them up with the blueprint to make sure you did it correctly.

Your entire Aircraft can be built with simple hand tools.
So you can build the entire aircraft in your shop with out having to spend any money on expensive tools.

You might be thinking,"But I see welding on the cage." Yes the cage is welded, but you do not have to do this yourself. I sure can't weld. Any boat shop will have a certified aluminum welder who can weld the cage up for you for their shop minimum. Usually around $40.00.

Your entire aircraft can be built in under 40 hours.
After my team and I made the prototype we gave the plans to a builder who made me another aircraft.

The builder made this aircraft in under 40 hours. This is the simplest aircraft in the world to build. You can build your aircraft and be flying in a week.

Testing your Aircraft.
The builders book tells how to easily test your aircraft. For example there is the hang test. You use a beam to hang yourself in your harness from your motor unit and run the throttle up to see how everything feels.

THANK YOU, TOM!!!! It sure was a pleasant surprise seeing your book in the email last night. I stayed up late and read the whole thing. Your content is excellent, and the illustrations are extremely well done. I found they concisely summarize the material; many times in a humorous way. I can tell you guys enjoy (and respect) the sport.

You created a great resource for ignorant people like myself, Tom! Good job!

The easiest Aircraft in the world to fly

When I first decided that I wanted to fly I had no money to pay for schooling or training. Heck, a private pilots license cost $3000 at the time. (More then it cost me to build the entire Parapropter) And I wanted something I could fly without killing myself. So one of the things I looked for in an aircraft was one that was EASY to learn to fly. Notice the cool name EasyUp. :-)

You can learn to fly a Parapropter in a Weekend.
A powered Paraglider is so easy to learn to fly that many people have just done it on their own. We do not recommend this. We STRONGLY suggest that you go get lessons from a school. Some schools will tell you that it takes 8 days to learn others will tell you it takes 2 days.

We will give you a list of schools in your area.
When I learned to fly a Powered Paraglider I had to drive for 12 hours to a place where I could learn to fly. But since it only took a weekend I was able to only pay for 1 night of hotel rent. Now a days there are a LOT more powered Paragliding schools.

You can be set-up, taken-off, fly, land and pack it away by yourself.
Because you do not need any ground crew you can go flying when ever you want.

Your Aircrafts Center of Lift WAY above Center of gravity.
Because the wing (your paraglider canopy) is so far above your center of gravity (you and the motor) the aircraft is incredibly stable. You can fly your Powered Paraglider in weather that grounds most fixed wing ultralights. You are already under an open parachute before you ever get off the ground. The incredible stability of your Parapropter makes it VERY easy to control.

You can take off in 2-10 steps.
For your first few take offs you will have to run down the field for a little bit but after a little practice you will be able to take off in 10 steps in dead air and in 2 steps with just a tiny head wind.

You can land in 1 soft step.
When landing you pull on your break lines bringing you and the craft to a total stop. Then you just sort of step down. It is a lot like landing a parachute but the Paraglider canopy is a lot larger and more gentle then a parachute. So you can have very soft landings.

Anyone can fly a Parapropter.
I do not know what the record is but I know of a 72 year old Powered Paraglider pilot and a 12 year old Powered Paraglider pilot. I know of a 346 pound pilot and an 80lb pilot. I have to guess that if you are reading this page you fall inside that range. :-)


I've got to hand it to you, and everyone at easyup!; YOUR BOOK;YOUR SITE;AND YOUR HEART-FELT WARMTH FOR THIS SPORT AND THOSE NOVISTS (SUCH AS MYSELF) IS MOST DEEPLY APPRECIATED! I just had to tell you so...

I requested your Easy Up! sample book, and loved it beginning to end. Then I reviewed your entire web site...you look damn funny in those pictures...but I love what your doing and I want to see you succeed beyond your dreams so I'm sending you a check from personal fortune in the sum of $125,000.00!! (one hundred DOLLORS!) This is to help ensure your success! Best wishes!


No government interference.

I am not particularly anti government but I am very anti hassle. I hate hassles so I figure the simpler I can make my life the more fun I can have doing what I want now what someone else wants me to do.

Ultralight Aircraft (Far Part 103)
Your Parapropter falls under a special aviation code section called "Far Part 103". You can look it up at your library or it is in the back of the book Going Up in a Parachute but what it basically says is that; because this aircraft is so small you can fly it with out any licensing or insurance requirements in the US. (Different countries have different rules but they are mostly similar).

No Insurance
You never have to go through the hassles of trying to get insurance to fly your aircraft.

No Personal Licensing
You never have to get any kind of license to fly a Parapropter. Some older pilots who can no longer pass their medical certificates still fly Ultralights because they do not have to have any license.

No Aircraft Licensing or Registration
You never have to go through the cost or hassle of having to get your aircraft inspected, licensed or registered.

Hey Tom:

I am one of your customers, and I want to say that I have received more good information from your book, Going Up in a Parachute, than in all the rest of my studies, which have been many, put together.

Thanks for rousing my interest in this hobby, and for having such an informative book.

Best Regards,

Bud Orr

$$$ How much does it cost? Why is it cheap? $$$

When I started my quest to get flying in my own aircraft I had some great advantages and some great disadvantages. I had some talented engineering friends. I was nearly flat broke. I had to save money and I wanted to make sure this was a quality and inexpensive way for others to fly as well. I got my first motor from a wrecked fixed wing Ultralight for very cheap.

Universal Anti Vibration Plate
Any quality Powered Paraglider will have anti-vibration mounts between the motor and the aircraft frame. In order to make the aircraft design as versatile as possible we designed an anti-vibration plate that the motor mounts attach to. This means that you can mount nearly any type of motor you want inside the frame. A guy in India used a local motorcycle engine. Because you can use a variety of motors it is easy to find a cheap used motor that will save you thousands. You can get a good quality motor for around $500. I have seen them for as little as $150.

Barely Used Canopies
Most schools will sell their barely used canopies for about 1/2 of what a new canopy would cost. These canopies can have as little as 3 hours on them. You can also find cheap used canopies on EBay. Older used canopies can go for as little as a few hundred dollars.

We give you the resources you need
The plans builders’ book and our builders’ only web site give updated sources for all kinds of components. This will save you time and money in your bargain hunting.

Hello Tom,

Thanks for assistance just to get me airborne.

I did look around in my area where I stayed, apparently I did met someone who happened to quite active with this sort of flying. Went and approach him and got all the same, almost the same advice you gave me.

In fact that after quite sometime, I did my training with him and to my surprise, true enough, I just wouldn't land back on ground. Such a thrill up there, hanging with some breeze blowing on your face in which you would not get by a car.

Did tell a lot of my friends of the feeling of these type of aircraft. Thanks again, and happy soaring/floating in air.


A Top Quality (Awesome) Aircraft

My craving for the sky was so strong that I was tempted to do anything to get up there but I knew that I would not be happy unless I did it right. When I set out to get my own aircraft I had to make sure it would not be a piece of junk. As a kid I once bought a set of plans for a helicopter thing that would have killed me if I had built it. I wanted something that I would be proud to show my friends. I wanted something that was SAFE! I wanted a TOP OF THE LINE aircraft!!! So with my Engineer friends I designed the best then figured out how make it easy to build.

  • Climb Rate: 300 to 500 feet per minute

    It gets you up into the sky quick.

  • Aircraft Weight: 25 pounds (Minus Motor)

    The Very light weight and strong aluminum frame makes it easy to handle.

  • Triangular cage support design

    Very strong cage design will last for many many years.

  • Pilot Weight: 100-250 pounds

    Will comfortably and safely fly a variety of pilots increasing your used resale value.

  • Hanging Seat Back Harness Design

    Once you are flying the Parapropter is weightless, because it is suspended from the canopy and you are suspended from it. You will be sitting in a very comfortable and supportive harness.

  • The Parapropter will take a 2 or 5 gallon tank

    You can extend your flying time to over 5 hours of powered flight time.

  • Range 40 miles. (100 miles with Tank Upgrade)

    You can fly all day or across country and see some very interesting places.

  • Takes Regular unleaded gas

    You can cheaply and quickly pick up gas at any local gas station.

  • Possible Electric Start

    With an Electric start you can fly up to any height you want then shut off the motor and thermal until you decide to power up again. You can extend your flying time to all day long.

  • Speed 24-30 MPH

    Your Parapropter is fast enough to enjoy tree and hill hoping but slow enough for photography and easy handling.

  • The Entire Craft disassembles for Transport

    You can throw your Aircraft in the trunk of your car or take it on an airline as luggage and fly it anywhere.

I have purchased aircraft plans before and all of them had to have modifications made to them to make the aircraft be able to fly and be safe to fly. I felt it was a big waste of money and it took a long time to get to me.

I searched the Internet and came across Easyup Corp. I emailed Tom from Easyup and asked a bunch of dumb questions and he took the time to answer each and every one of them, and with enthusiasm. Even though I hadn’t didn’t ordered yet.

I felt a bit more confident that the plans were of decent quality. Tom stayed patient with me and didn’t bug me to buy buy buy. I was leery of getting more cheap quality plans, and using money that I wanted to spend my money on the aircraft, not another bad set of plans.

I got the plans exactly when Tom said that they would arrive. I was so excited to see that the plans, book, everything was AWSOME! Very professionally done. That’s when I realized that “Tom” is “Thomas Tate” The author of Going up in a Parachute”.

Tom is a very easy guy to talk to, he’s honest, a heck of an author. Going up in a Parachute is full of useful information. I read the whole book in one sitting, and now I use it as my Paramotor bible.

Thanks Tom,

Soon you will realize your dream of flight and be soaring over the hills and treetops with the birds. Lifting free from the bonds of earth. It is the most exhilarating and freeing feeling you can imagine.

Important Note: It took me 4 months to design the Parapropter prototype with some friendly engineering help. If you had to pay for all the engineering time that went into these plans it would cost you over $14,500.00 just in design costs.

Then we spent 7 more months refining it and developing the plans. We have since then spent and still spend time working on resource updates and extra things like the bonuses below to help get you flying as fast as you can.

To purchase a new Powered Paraglider would cost you about $9000 complete. (Don't let them fool you by only giving the price on a motor).

With these plans you can build your own aircraft for under $2000. A savings of $7000.

If you order today I would like to get you started building your own aircraft for only $197 $97.

Of course, to "sweeten the deal" even MORE, I'm also going to throw in...
