I've been flying GA aircraft for 14 years and have always wanted to truly fly like a bird. PPG is it! Mo is a very knowledgeable and skilled PPG pilot and instructor. You can see that in his flying and communication skills. I decided to get into PPG after a friend of mine got me interested. I signed up for an introductory flight with Mo and that is all it took. Mo ordered my wing and got me going on ground handling/kiting skills right away. He got me in the air using his electric "Mo-Tow" machine to get a feel for the wing (what a great training tool). He explained the motor unit, how to assemble, how to maintain, what not to do and all the other necessary information. We did a hang test to make sure everything was right with the harness and motor before my solo flight. On my 4th training day, I soloed! I stayed in the air for 30 minutes or more just taking it all in. I must say, there is much more to this sport in terms of knowledge and skill than I first thought. Mo is a great instructor who's dedicated to the utmost in professionalism and fun.
PPG requires significant training. We will not sell essential PPG flight equipment (i.e. wings or motor units) to anyone until we have verified that they have arranged for training with a recognized instructor. More...
