Watch a Paramotorist Catch a Paper Airplane While Flying 2,000 Feet in the Air

If you’re looking for a relaxing way to run out the work clock on a Friday afternoon, I highly recommend Tucker Gott’s flying videos on YouTube. He takes to the air using a parachute and a propeller strapped to his back, which gives him the freedom to try fun stunts like launching and catching a paper airplane in mid-air.

The ease with which Gott takes the skies, navigates his local surroundings, and lands again makes you wonder if we should just give paramotors to every commuter, instead of spending millions of dollars trying to make flying cars happen. The only downside I can see would be thousands of paper airplanes slowly gliding down into our towns and cities.

In my youth I was a very active private pilot. One of the planes I flew was the American Yankee, a small two-seater with a sliding canopy that could be opened in flight. Sometimes I’d throw out a paper towel, then circle around and try to chop it up with the prop. It’s harder than it sounds but I got it several times.
