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-riskrewardRisk & Reward, The Essential DVD
It is the essential DVD for aspiring Powered Paragliding Pilots. If there’s only one DVD you see about PPG, Risk & Reward with William Shatner should be it! Our sport is probably the safest form of powered recreational flying but there are risks. Thankfully, there are great ways to reduce those risks, too.

Annual Polar Bear Flight: Pilot Michael Mixer joined four other pilots of the Discover Powered Paragliding Club for their Annual Polar Bear Flight that takes place every New Year’s Day morning. Each pilot braved the cold weather and was challenged to fly for a least 1 minute for each degree of temperature. This year the morning temperature was 22 degrees at the club’s’ airstrip located northeast of Quincy, IL and each pilot successfully flew the required 22 minutes.
