Aviation for Any Interest

Our love for aviation shows itself in different ways. Whatever sparks your obsession, EAA will help you chase it with everything we’ve got.

Powered Parachutes / Powered Paragliders

Powered Parachutes (PPCs) and Powered Paragliders (PPG) are just what you think: parafoil-type wings with a gas engine or electric motor to provide forward propulsion. 

In the case of a PPC, the engine is usually mounted to a frame with wheels and a seat (non-ultralight two-seaters exist in the Light Sport category as well), while a PPG takes an even simpler approach – the engine is worn in a harness on the pilot’s back. 

PPCs and PPGs represent some of the most inexpensive and accessible types of flying available.
