While in Florida recently, some of the Flite Test crew had the opportunity to learn how to power paraglide AKA power motor. Aviator PPG worked with Josh, Alex, Austin and Chad to teach them each step of the process, starting with kiting. Stay tuned for more footage of them learning this exciting sport!
What is kiting? Kiting teaches basic principles to control the wing while having your feet safely on the ground. Because it is a risky activity, it is important to learn proper control and movement to keep the wing fully inflated and stable during flight. This is done by using the left and right toggles, which flexes the wing to advance, fall back or turn.
