PPG is a Powered Paragliding school located in
Shippensburg, PA & Libertytown, MD. I offer training, service,
and sales for all the equipment you will need to fly a PPG.
Have you ever remembered looking to the sky, and watching the
birds float along gliding thru the air? As a child did you ever
think of jumping off a roof with a parachute made from your
bed sheet? If so PPG may be exactly what you have been looking
Powered Paragliding is the simplest
form of human motorized flight: no airplane, no windshield,
just you in control, flying through the air. It launches from
a field, is easy to fly, to transport, and is inherently stable
while offering amazingly precise control. The paraglider wing
itself has no rigid structure—the pilot sits in a seat,
suspended by lines. The paramotor, a backpack power unit that
attaches to the harness, provides thrust for climbing up higher
and flying level at your own will.
