PPG-2 Pilot trike Course

The PPG 2 trike Pilot course is a 4 day intermediate course and provides the student with the PPG Pilot qualification level 2. Students must complete the 4 day PPG Pilot 1 course first. A PPG 2 trike Pilot is someone who at the end of the course, becomes an independent paramotor pilot, capable of flying solo and analyzing the different weather conditions, if necessary under the supervision of an Instructor. Before flying independently at different sites, PPG 2 Pilots are recommended to choose places where they can have assistance from a PPG Instructor/experienced PPG Pilot.

To enroll in PPG-2 Pilot trike Course, an individual must:

  • Be certified as a PPG 1 trike Pilot or have a similar certification from another training organization.
  • Have a minimum age of 16 years old
  • Respect safety rules and quality standards
  • After enrolling the student must :

  • Complete the PPG 2 trike Pilot theoretical course consisting of at least 3 lectures and one exam.
