Powered Paragliding Bible 6:
The Ultimate Paramotor Manual and Reference

By Jeff Goin

PPG Bible 6 is a clear, CONCISE, and professionally-illustrated guide for anyone wanting to become an ACCOMPLISHED paramotor pilot, either footlaunch or on wheels. It is comprehensive but breaks down information into digestible chunks to make success safer and more enjoyable.

It is our most significant update to Paramotoring’s most popular book.

Most significantly, illustrations have been dramatically improved, enlarged, and made more clear. There are more of them, at better clarity, and more relevance. The entire book has been rebuilt using industry-leading software that allowed much better cross-referencing.

It builds on our most successful book to date, the 5th edition, with every section significantly updated.

We take you from first sight to first flight and way beyond. The Equipment content and illustrations now reflect what has become the defacto standard in paramotor gear, including appropriate training gear through competition-winning gear.

You’ll find out what the sport is about, what a skilled pilot is capable of, and how to become that skilled pilot. Not just the specific twists of technique, but how to practice, how to know you’ve got it, where the dark corners lurk, and how to avoid them. And it dispels many stubborn myths.

The book comes in 6 sections.

Section I (Ch 1 – 6) is the most important. It takes you from knowing nothing through ground handling, first flights, terminology, DETAILED equipment illustrations, and necessary cautions. Chapter 6 is for those learning on or transitioning to wheels. This section isn’t about academics yet–that’s covered later–because initial learning is mostly about physical skills. It covers what physical skills are considered essential to set out alone.

Section II (Ch 7 – 14) provides the head knowledge needed to be independent. It covers weather, performance, law, airspace, and maintenance, including a troubleshooting flow chart.

Section III (Ch 15 – 21) is for mastering the sport. Really mastering. Precision flying, formation, advanced ground handling, competition, and techniques to make the next level. Remarkably precision control is available to those who are willing to work at it.

Section IV (Ch 22 – 25) is for the curious. It’s a big part of why this is also a reference manual. It’s where the more in-depth knowledge lives. Some of it is quite practical and will help make sound pilot judgments, but some will just satisfy your need to know. This is especially invaluable to anyone wanting to build their own machine.

Section V (Ch 26 – 29) is about buying gear: wing, motor, and even accessories. It will help understand the trade-offs, especially how to avoid hypesters and shysters who will gladly sell their square pegged gear to fill your round-holed needs.

Section VI (Ch 30 – 32) answers the question of what now? Some are just plain fun, but that s what this sport is about. It includes new coverage on the latest in photography, such as how to set up a really good “follow cam” that makes you the star of an impressive movie.

Even if you’re just curious about what paramotoring is all about, including the search for training, then this book is perfect. More than any edition before, it will help you learn, then excel as a paramotor pilot.

Enjoy!


About the Author

I am passionate about two things: aviation, specifically powered paragliding, and education. Having someone say "ahhhh, I see" is nearly as thrilling, in a different way of course, than nailing an important spot landing during competition.

My flying started early, at age 13, flying gliders. That started a career in aviation that eventually led to becoming a Captain at Southwest Airlines. As I've said almost every day of 737 flying, if you gotta work...

Another turning point came in 1999 when a friend asked me that fateful question "hey Jeff, you wanna go in with me on a powered paraglider?" "A what?" I responded. He expounded on this craft that completely mesmerized me, starting my journey that continues to consume expansive plots of my timescape. And a rewarding journey it has been!

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.
