The TrikeBuggy Tandem is our 2-place machine made for use in countries where Tandem Flights are legal. In the USA, Ultralight PPG Trikes are not legal under FAA Part 103 as an Ultralight Vehicle or Aircraft. The Tandem Exemption in place for Foot Launched Tandem Flight does not include Wheeled Launch or Landing.
The TrikeBuggy Tandem uses an incredibly robust Stainless Steel Kite Buggy as the foundation for this unique PPG Trike. The design allows the pilot and passenger to enter and exit the trike easily. It is also quite easy to dismount the motor for use as foot launch or to transport.
The TrikeBuggy Tandem also incorporates our latest innovation - the TrikeBuggy Low Hangpoint System. This allows the use of virtually any paraglider whether it has trimmers or not. The risers are positioned much lower than most PPG Trikes, bringing the brake position down to a comfortable reach for even the shortest pilots. This system is unique in the industry, since it allows the pilots to use their regular Tandem Certified 2-place paraglider without making modifications to it.
The Low Hangpoint System is also noteworthy because it literally ties the paraglider to the Buggy, eliminating the need for any kind of harness system. You simply sit down and fasten your seat belt and go fly!
The low CG (center of gravity) is the same as the other TrikeBuggies, since we are using the same low seat and comfortable reclined seat position made possible by the Buggy. At 7" off the ground, this is the lowest pilot seat of any ultralight aircraft available today.
When assembled, the TrikeBuggy Deluxe V3.2 is 73" long (tip to tip on tires) and 63" wide, but the Slider axles can be shortened to less than 3 feet wide!
