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.

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 USPPA certified, and ask if they employ the Best Practices for Paramotor Training.

Know of an Accident/Incident?

Help us learn from past mistakes and better understand probabilities by reporting incidents. That lets us collectively know where to put our resources to avoid repeats. Reports can be completely anonymous. If you have had, or know of, an accident, or potential accident, or near accident, or unsafe condition, please share it on our incident database.
