     Master PPG Series
    by Jeff Goin, Airhead Creations
    Powered paragliding has more to offer an inspired pilot than possibly any other type of flying, and in so many ways. This series will help you unlock some of the techniques that will lead you towards excellence. It is intended for pilots who have already learned the basics, and are competent beginner level flyers.

    Video is never any substitute for high quality instruction and especially practice. Nor can any video instill a skill. The purpose is not to replace personal instruction but rather augment it. This series will show you the tools, how they can be used, and how to practice them, and what's possible.

    These are not "show-off" videos. Techniques are broken down with close-ups, graphics, animation, narrated explanations and slow motion to first show exactly what to do, how much to do it, what timing is involved and how to react. Then timing is further dissected as we reveal the techniques in action.

    On sale at $30 each or all three for special Combo price of $75, a $15 bundle savings.

    Video 2: Advanced Launching
    Running time: 92 minutes
    Lets face it, launching a paramotor, especially on foot, is difficult. Even if you succeed nearly every time, it's still a challenging task. Experienced pilots may make it look easy but the reality is that every launch is challenging. There are lots of finer points that can help with success.

    Among the many topics covered are: launching in crosswinds, launching in strong winds, launching with low attachments, high attachments, on roads, in confined areas, launching into foot drags, recovering from crooked inflations and much more. Then there's a thorough treatment of launching with wheels. From recovering wing gyrations to reverse launching. Learn to taxi/takeoff in a crosswind or to taxi in a 360. This is, after all, advanced techniques.

    Video 3: Inflight Precision
    Running time: 115 minutes
    This is the most important video in the series because it covers the foundations of all precision flying. It is also the most fun, incorporating a few minutes of gorgeous, fun flying between some sections in a fast-paced style to the beat of great music. Flying scenes from all over the world are included that celebrate the incredible freedom that precise flight gives us.

    There's more than meets the eye for super accurate control of flight path. Height, speed, rolling out of steep turns precisely while managing energy start out the expose. Then following a set ground track, foot dragging, handling turbulence, and competition are covered in detail along with many others.

    3-D animation and other graphics combine with frequently beautiful flying scenes to crystallize understanding of certain core principles. Even for non-competitors there is a lot to learn from the competition section which includes how to fly a world record cloverleaf, with animation that clearly shows how its done -- from power management to ground track and speed control. We'll show how world champion Mathieu Roanet pulls off his amazing times and fly with U.S. Champion Eric Dufour and English Champion Michel Carnet, watching from the pilot's perspective as animation details what they're doing. We explain the important concepts and show how to put them to work.

    Video 4: Precision Landings
    Still being made...
    There's nothing like a perfect swoop landing to top off a flight. We'll describe the science behind it through animation then show various techniques in practice. We'll cover how to land in no wind, stronger wind, confined areas, how to land and stop, land over obstacles, do slider landings and much more. Animation plays a big part here since it so clearly shows important elements of flight path control. Plus we'll cover the extreme risks of spot landings and how to reduce them.
