The Powered Paragliding Bible - Current Edition

by Jeff Goin

The most complete reference manual on Powered Paragliding just got dramatically better!

If you are:

  • Considering the sport, this will tell you all about what trade-offs are made and what to avoid.
  • Just getting started, this will prepare you for training.
  • Setting out on your own, this will help clarify the vagaries of rotor, micrometeorology, airspace, rules, field selection, etc.
  • Curious, this answers questions. Many, many questions about everything from aerodynamics to history.
  • Into photography, this will offer tips that may save much aggravation about getting good pictures from a PPG.
  • Thinking about competition, this has the lowdown on what it is, how it's flown and, better yet, what to practice to get good at it.

Then this book is for you!

Paragliding: A Pilot's Training Manual

by Mike Meier, Mark Stucky and Tim Meehan

The newly released edition of the manual includes a Bonus DVD with 80 minutes of narrated video footage covering topics ranging from canopy layout, inflation and launch techniques to soaring, advanced canopy control maneuvers and landing approach theory and practice.

Originally written by Mike Meier, and first published in 1991, the Training Manual has sold more than ten thousand copies and has been a standard reference text for new paraglider pilots. Master pilot and paragliding instructor Rob McKenzie of High Adventure Hang Gliding and Paragliding has characterized it as "Probably about the simplest layout of the concepts of gliding flight ever written. A terrific reference book and training supplement for the beginner through intermediate pilot."

While the Training Manual has been updated over the years to reflect changes in the sport, this new edition represents a major expansion in the scope and content of the manual. Wills Wing has brought onboard paraglider pilots Mark Stucky and Tim Meehan to create a complete revision with an entirely new look, additional subject matter and new illustrations.

Understanding The Sky

by Dennis Pagen

"A pilot needs to understand the ways of the sky to fly successfully and safely...". This guide is designed to present a clear picture of how the atmosphere works. Learn the cause and behavior of the wind. Gain knowledge of lift patterns and types. Find out how to predict flying conditions.

This book is a store of knowledge from 20 years of flying sport aircraft. If you've ever wondered why the air behaves as it does, this book is for you. The greatest emphasis is on small-scale effects--excatly where we fly. Details are provided on everything from turbulence to thunderstorms. The chapters on lift sources and flying efficiency alone are worth the price of this book. Understanding The Sky is your key to complete comfort in the air.

The book is intended for sport aviators -- ultralight, sailplane and hang glider pilots, as well as balloonists, RC modelers and parachutists -- who want to learn the esoteric things they may have missed during general weather courses. Matters such as reverse gradients, low-level shears, thermals, daily variations, upslope breezes, down-bursts and gust fronts are described. Understanding the Sky covers large-scale weather, explaining the message of the sky and the structure of the atmosphere in several chapters; the rest of the book is devoted to more local effects.

The author, Dennis Pagen, is a pilot with 19 years of experience in various fast and slow aircraft. He has previously written 10 "how-to" books on sport aviation. This latest book is a culmination of years of research that Pagen says he hopes will benefit all pilots who wish to know more about the air in which they travel.

DISCLAIMER: Please read and be sure you thoroughly understand this disclaimer before flying a TrikeBuggy. Trike flying is an extremely demanding sport requiring exceptional levels of attention, judgment, maturity and self discipline. It is unlikely that you will be able to participate in it safely unless you make a conscious and continual commitment to your own safety. PPG and Hang Glider Trike flying is a dangerous sport and may result in injury and death even when practiced by a competent pilot using proper equipment. TrikeBuggies are not covered by product liability insurance, nor have they been designed, manufactured or tested to any federal or state government airworthiness standards or regulations. Do not fly them unless you are willing to assume personally all risks in the sport of Trike flying, and all responsibility for any property damage, injury, or death which may result from your use of this TrikeBuggy. Safe operation of the TrikeBuggy requires a pilot proficiency equivalent to that of a BFI (Basic Flight Instructor), as well as an equivalent level of knowledge and understanding of those wind and weather conditions which may compromise the pilot's safe control of the TrikeBuggy. In particular, be advised that gusty winds or turbulent conditions may interfere with even an expert pilot's ability to safely control the TrikeBuggy, and may cause it to crash. Never take anything for granted in Trike Flying. If you are in doubt about anything, stop and figure it out or contact TrikeBuggy. Also please read our Warning and Caution!
