Overview Of Paramotor Ratings Process
Students or pilots wanting a PPG 1 through PPG 3 rating can go to any current USPPA instructor. All tests must be passed because they build on each other, so an experienced pilot wanting to demonstrate knowledge and skills to a PPG 3 level must go through the PPG 1 and PPG 2 syllabus and tests in addition to those for the PPG 3. For a truly skilled, knowledgeable pilot at this level it can be done in a weekend. Pilots who do it typically enjoy the process and report learning some things even if they’ve been flying for years.
Seek out an instructor who is actively giving ratings.
