The TrikeBuggy Bullet Tandem is our 2-place machine made for the enjoyment of two occupants. In the USA, Ultralight PPG Trikes are now legal under FAA Part 103 as an Ultralight Vehicle or Aircraft for USPPA Certified Instructors to use as a training tool.
The TrikeBuggy Tandem uses an incredibly robust Stainless Steel Kite Buggy as the foundation for this unique PPG Trike. The design is based on our popular Bullet TrikeBuggy with the beautiful Stainless curved tubes. 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 Tandem Paraglider wing 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 any 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!
Pilot can sit in either the front or rear seat as long as the throttle is long enough. Rear seat is positioned higher so it is easy to see over the front occupant.

Some TrikeBuggy Tandem history:
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!
