E129 -Travis Landry- I was born and raised in Austin Tx. I'm 35, and currently own a welding business with my brother as a primary income. I am an electrician, musician, skateboarder, motorcyclist, artist, and many other things. I began paramotoring in March of 2019. Quickly began helping Ron teach kiting, flew over 300 times in my first year, got a PPG3 rating, and began an apprenticeship as an instructor. Currently I have helped train over 150 students and hold instructor ratings, and tandem exemptions thru the USPPA and ASC. The emotional intensity of launching and landing a student on their first few flights is a rush like no other. As instructors, we live for those reactions, and the variety of emotions that pour from the students in these precious moments. I was influenced in aviation by my grandfather who flew B17's in ww2, as well as my uncle that flew huey's in Vietnam, also another uncle who was an avid ultralight pilot. We used to go to airshows and since I could remember I've always wanted to fly, but the dream seemed too grand. As of today, I am the only one of my generation in the family to fly any craft. I truly never expected to become a teacher of anything, and somehow it found me anyway. I'm unbelievably grateful to have been pulled into this community. I'd say it saved me, when I didn't know I needed saving. The people are truly everything in this sport! Currently I'm awaiting a student pilot's license in the mail and plan to fly fixed wing as well as butt fans! I'm extremely lucky to have a friend who is teaching me to fly a plane out of our home airport. I'm here to share the dream and the flying love with anyone who will listen to me. This sport changes lives, attitudes, and perspectives, for many, forever!
