Welcome to the UKPPG News Page.
We have been working hard to get the New March Aerodrome fully operational over the past months and we have to say that we are making good progress. We are not quite finished yet, but we have only a few more days work to finalise the New Buildings, Training / Club Room, Toilets and Cladding.
We have still to erect the fencing and gates around the safe area of the Training / Club Room and the car park, due the bad weather, but everything is ready to rock as soon as the weather breaks.
New for 2013:
UKPPG Training is now associated to the APPI-PPG school of Paramotor and Tandem Training program. This is a great news for both UKPPG and all of its Students that chose UKPPG to be there Paramotor Training School.
The APPI-PPG Syllabus is a very similar to our already used UKPPG Syllabus, however the UKPPG training is slightly longer once you have actually flown as we like to get your number of flights up so that you have good flying experience prior to being signed off. Once you are signed off then you will be able to get your very own 3rd party insurance, which will cover you for £1.5m in most countries worldwide and enable you to fly at events and shows as a fully insured pilot with a recognized Pilot Rating.
In 2013 we are proud to welcome Wayne Kimberlin, the only Powered Parachute instructor in the UK.
Wayne is going to be operating with UKPPG to teach Trike Training for those that would like to upgrade there skills and get fully certified and licensed to fly trikes in the UK.
We are also very Happy to welcome a range of New Products to the UKPPG Webstore inventory in 2013 including Paragliders from NiviUK, MacPara and New on the Paramotor Scene is the comprehensive range from Kangook including there full range of Trikes and Accessories.
