Detailed Description

PPG Pilot Course

 

The Power Paragliding (PPG) Pilot course is an intermediate course and provides the student with the  PPG Pilot qualification. Students must complete the Basic Pilot course BPC-1 and BPC-2 first. A PPG Pilot is someone who has become an independent paramotor pilot, capable of flying solo and analysing the different weather conditions without supervision. Before flying at different sites, PPG Pilots are recommended to choose places where they can have assistance from an Pak Paragliding designated Instructor.

Prerequisites/Course Contents

To enrol in an PPG Pilot course, an individual must:

1. Be physically fit enough to take part in the training course.

2. Be already certified as PGC-2 Pilot, or have a similar certification from another training organization, however he would still need to under go a screening and a refresher course depending on the skill level displayed.

3. Have a minimum age of 16 years old.

4. Respect the Safety Rules and Quality Standards.

5. Agree to attend a 6 Day course consisting of the following Pilot training syllabus.

General Overview of Training Course:

Days 1 and 2: (Introduction, Lectures & Documentation)

1. Introduction to Pak Paragliding, PPG as a Sport, the School and completion of all paperwork including insurance.

2. Theory of Flight

3. Introduction to the Wing and Harness

4. Untangling, folding and care of the Wing

5. Wearing the harness, clipping into the wing and 5 point checks

6. Forward and Reverse launch training

7. Ground Handling Training

8. Towing Training at low heights.

OPTIONAL: 

  • Student Training Flights in a Tandem Paramotor at any time during the course
  • Low hops from no higher than 250ft having completed the above training

9. Motor Safety Check List

10. Safe Starting Procedures with electric and/or pull start Paramotors

11. Wearing the motor and running it

12. Hang Tests, Adjustments, Reserve Practice Deployments and Pre Solo Flight Simulation

Days 3 to 6:

1. Lecture 2: Basic Meteorology

2. Lecture 3: Basic Air Law relevant to Paragliding/PPG

PRACTICE, COACHING/ ASSESSMENT:

  • Forward Launch Competency after repeated training
  • Reverse Launch Competency after repeated training
  • Ground Handling Competency after repeated training
  • Landing Competency after repeated towing
  • Pre-flight checks, site assessment, weather to fly, motor usage competency after lectures and briefings

3. Lecture 4: Pre-Solo Flight Briefing

4. Flight 1: A multiple circuit flight of between 20 and 30 minutes in an open, unobstructed area, in smooth conditions and wind speeds less than 10mph, under the supervision and guidance of a Instructor.

OPTIONAL: 

    • Low Hops from no higher than 250ft having completed the above  Practice, coaching/ assessment
    • Winch towing from no higher than 250ft having completed the above  Practice, coaching/ assessments

PRACTICE, COACHING/ ASSESSMENT:

    • Practice launches while wearing the engine without it running

Prior to 1st Solo Paramotor Flight the student must read and sign below:

I, (name of the student) understand that I have successfully completed the practical and theoretical stages of the  PPG Pilot course. I understand and agree that as Pilot in Command I am fully responsible for the safe conduct of any flight and am confident of my ability to undertake this step. Furthermore, I understand that the engine may fail, the radios may fail and that I am completely prepared to deal with both eventualities and to land safely.

Course Theory: (Lectures)

1. Effects of the Motor upon the Wing

2. Navigation and Flight Planning
