What is Powered Paragliding?

Get ready for the ride of your life! Paragliding is the simplest form of flight: no plane, no windows, just you floating on air. A paraglider is a foot-launched inflatable wing. It is easy to transport, easy to launch, and easy to land! USPPA’s About PPG Brochure answers most common questions – Available for download and print.
