Jeff Goin soloed his first aircraft, a glider, 2 years before he could legally drive. Aviation then became his passion and vocation, eventually landing him in the left seat of a 737. Flying light airplanes and helicopters was his main form of fun flight until discovering powered paragliding. That changed everything. It unleashed an exuberance for flight like no other form had. Besides delving deep into paramotoring, he founded the U.S. Powered Paragliding Association and served in other capacities to help insure the sport's continued success. He writes regularly for the industry leading UltraFlight Magazine and has contributed to several other ultralight-related publications.Review:
As a newbie, getting the PPG Bible is a no-brainer. From choosing equipment, your first solo, or the thought process in an emergency, this book has it all and more. Even for experienced pilots, just one tip from this book can save you a lot of hassle and money and pain. Free flight pilots transitioning to powered will find the Bible very valuable. Because the book is well organized by subject, PG pilots will be able to quickly find and brush up on subjects like airspace, engine maintenance, and an entire chapter dedicated to PG to PPG transition. Veteran PPG pilot Michael Purdy of World Talk Radio s Powered Paragliding Show summed up his read of the PPG Bible, I didn t know what I didn t know. Great job, Jeff, Dennis, and all those who contributed to this amazing work. --Phil Russman, Producer of "Powered Paragliding: Risk & Reward"
Wow, I just received my signed copy of the Powered Paragliding Bible from Jeff Goin. Jeff has been working on this for several years and, as a training manual for PPG and even PG pilots, it's a wealth of information, and it's very, very well done. Clearly Illustrated with loads of great ideas and tips. Kiting and launching skills are key to being successful with a PPG, and the information crosses directly to PG pilots as well. I give this book 2 hearty thumbs up. I just wish this book was available back when I started. I learned a bunch of things I never knew. In retrospect they make perfect sense. This is a must read for every PPG or wanna be PPG pilot. Even as an accused know it all, I found loads of useful information in it. --Stu Caruk, TowMeUp.com
Outstanding book. Absolutely the best written reference for PPG enthusiasts ever written! I already purchased three copies and gave them to my current students. In the future, I will include this book as a portion of my training curriculum. --Britton Shaw, Paramotor Instructor
