An Experience Like No Other

Get ready for the ride of your life. Paragliding is the simplest form of flight: no plane, no windows, just you floating on air. A paraglider is a foot-launched inflatable wing. It is easy to transport, easy to launch, and easy to land! The About PPG Brochure answers most common questions – Available for download and print.

dvd-riskrewardThis is the essential DVD for aspiring Powered Paragliding Pilots. If there’s only thing you watch about PPG, Risk & Reward with William Shatner should be it! Paramotoring can be the safest form of powered recreational flying but there are risks. Thankfully, there are great ways to reduce those risks, too.

Best Practices for Paramotor Activity

Paramotoring is skyrocketing in popularity. Help keep it safe and desirable but most of all, with the exception of some very simple rules in FAR Part 103, almost entirely self regulated. Nobody likes noise pollution or irresponsible behavior. Check out the USPPA’s Best Practices for Paramotoring here.

Quality training is your best defense against the relatively high risk of the learning phase. To make sure your potential school provides the best safety, make sure they are are USPPA certified, and ask if they employ the Best Practices for Paramotor Training.
