PPG Training; Our teaching method.
For your safety you must receive theoretical and practical training before flying. Our Basic Training is easy and only takes 5 days with USPPA certified Instructors, giving PPG1, PPG2, PPG3 wheels and foot launch ratings.
A PPG is different from paragliding: you must simultaneously control the canopy as well as a powerful engine on your back !!!
Our trainning course usually takes about 5 days, depending on your aeronautical knowledge, your level of comfort, your physical condition, and of course.... wheather conditions.
Our standard trainning course includes this 4 General Steps;
Control of the paraglider
Safe & Proper use of the engine
First flight and basic piloting instructions
Safety procedures and additional trainning.
1- Using the paraglider
The first step consists in control of the wing on the ground :
control of the brakes
wind conditions ...
Occasionally your instructor will take you to a training hill or use a pay-in towing winch for your first (but brief) flight. The goal is to perfect the controlling of paraglider under different wind conditions. During inflation, and while kiting.
2- Safely using the engine
The second step consists of controlling engine and thrust on the ground :
engine control & balance
fueling and set-up procedure
start-up & thrust control
launching sequence under thrust ...
During this instruction stage, you will learn how to synchronize wing control + foot-launching + engine thrust + safety. After this stage, your "ground" school is finished.
3- First flight and basic flight training
The third step is the one you have been waiting for...
Before this step, you will have successfully been able to control the paraglider and engine thrust during the take-off simulation.
Gradually, with the aid of a two-way radio & your instructor, you will learn to :
control your altitude ...
fly in straight line (at a 300 ft altitude)
turn left, turn right
perform a smooth, safe landing
After 2 or 3 flights you will be able to fly on your own, under the supervision of your instructor.
4- Safety & enhanced training
This last step will now teach you to fly safely in both normal and abnormal situations.
Observing Weather conditions
Launch/Landing in high and low wind situations
At the successful completion of our course, we will proudly present you with your EagleWing's Pilot Certificate.
