Beach Flying Guidelines

We have met as a paramotor group and with City Council members of Neptune Beach to create a compromise to allow us to peacefully share the beach with the local beach residents and visiting beach goers. Here are the guidelines that must be followed by every PPG pilot flying any of the beaches in North East Florida so that we may continue to enjoy the sights and sounds of our beaches.


  • Absolutely NO Fueling on the sand or walkovers.
  • Vary your Launch sites.
  • Launch and Leave your launch site.
  • Do Not circle or hover in one area.
  • Keep flight paths over the water, at an altitude that allows for a safe landing.
  • Maintain a flight altitude that is safe for you and the ocean goers.
  • Do Not fly over the houses or decks.
  • Do Not fly over the dunes except on landing approach.
  • Avoid launching from Neptune Beach on weekends and holidays from Memorial Day through Labor Day unless conditions permit.
  • Know airspace restrictions and TFR's prior to launching.

As pilot in command you are always responsible for your safety, as well as the safety of bystanders. We are very proud of our safety record here in North East Florida. Continue be aware of your surroundings and of those nearby.

Fly Courteously, Respectfully and Safe!


If you are a visiting pilot, please contact Rod or another local pilot so that we can meet up for an additional safety briefing regarding launching areas, additional safety matters and controlled airspace restrictions prior to you flying the North East Florida Beaches.
