OK, so you've always
wanted to fly, but it was just too expensive.Well, not any more!
Now, for about the same cost as a medium priced motorcycle, you can be
the air floating along like a bird! With some of the same skills
coordination as it takes to ride, you could be flying! Now it's
possible for everyday people to own & fly their own ultralight
aircraft and participate in aviation. PPG makes possible
affordable flight & ownership for those aviation enthusiasts who
would otherwise not have the opportunity to pilot their own
aircraft. Even better, most units easily & disassemble
so that they will fit in the trunk of even a compact car. Or box it
up and sent ahead to your vacation spot or job site. These are
absolutely the smallest and lightest ultralight aircraft in existence.
The first phase of our
training is learning to control the wing on the ground, called Ground
Handling, which for most is the hardest part of the training & the
sport in general. This involves the use of a wing and training harness.
Kiting, as it is also called, can be learned in as little as a few
to several days, depending on the skills of the individual
proficient, the next stage is kiting wearing the static motor to get a
feel for the weight & balance. Then there will be "taxi
trials" where the student inflates the wing & uses the motor to
help him taxi along the ground. Next are the actual solo flights
and you're on your
way into an exciting sport that will, without a doubt, provide you many
years of enjoyment, pride of accomplishment and an endless supply of
Fri. 3/8/13 0800 Arrived at Compound. Wind
was NNW 4 - 5 mph. Got in 3 flts. with my new Air Design Rama Flex 23.8
mt2 flat, 20.37 proj. wing. Very easy reverse inflation & launch.
Don't think it required much more speed on launch or landing than the
larger (M) 26.5 mt2 Rama I had flown before. Very pleased with it
overall. Video: Air Design Rama Flex in Flight
