APPI PPG Pilot cours for Paragliders
You already have an APPI license in winches or mountain flying and would also like to learn how to fly with a paramotor? No problem!
Because as a paraglider you already have a lot of experience flying with a paraglider and can already do groundhandling, we offer you a shortened custom-made course program within the paramotor course. You can then skip the Adventure PPG Pilot training. The APPI PPG Pilot training is also slightly cheaper for you because you do not need groundhandling training without an engine and because you often need less guidance for learning the exercises in the air than someone who is doing all this for the first time.
This training is only available for experienced paragliders with a APPI pilot’s license. During the first lesson of the training, the instructor will assess your level and indicate whether you are indeed qualified for this shortened course or whether it is better to do the full course.
This shortened training also only applies to footlaunch paramotor. This is because trikestart is really a different way of flying than paragliding.
This course is followed with own material and consists of:
- Groundhandling lesson with the motorcycle
- Enough solo flights with radio guidance to obtain your APPI paramotor license (minimum 20 flights and 10 hours)
- Complete Theorie op course including theorie texbook
Price of these course: € 1550,-
In the absence of your own material, you can of course always take a look at our paramotor winkel (paramotor shop), we have a wide range of new and second-hand paramotor equipment.
It is also possible to rent a complete paramotor set during the course for € 75 per hour.
