Education

Articles Organized by Chapters of the Powered Paragliding Bible and For Troubleshooting Problems.

We are all about education. Besides the book, we strive to make this website a repository of useful, reliable information for pilots starting or continuing their life aloft.

As such, we’ve provided several areas that get updated periodically, adding to what’s in the PPG Bible. Sometimes it’s detail that could be distracting when just learning. 

There are also extra chapters that cover even more material that didn’t warrant inclusion in the book.

the most amazing way to fly ever devised

Paragliding is the simplest form of flight: no plane, no windows, minimal frame — just you in control, flying through the air.

Paramotors aren’t fast, they take a lot of effort to launch, they require an associate degree in two stroke mechanics and don’t allow you to carry much. So what’s the big deal?
