Jeff Goin has been flying since age 13, starting with gliders and now as a 737 Captain for a major airline. But when he discovered powered paragliding, everything changed as the sport became a burning passion. He founded the U.S. Powered Paragliding Association in 2001 and wrote the script to their top-selling Risk & Reward video which was produced by Lite Touch Films. The Powered Paragliding Bible was a result of concern over the lack of a truly comprehensive training manual.
Jeff has been a 3-time USPPA National Champion and placed 6th in the 2009 World Air Games, an invitational all-expenses-paid competition of the world's top 22 pilots. More than anything, he's passionate about sharing sound information on the sport of Powered Paragliding.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. --Michael Purdy, PPG Radio Show
I didn't know what I didn't know. Great job, Jeff, Dennis, and all those who contributed to this amazing work. --Phil Russman, Produce "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. 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. --Stu Caruk, owner TowMeUp.com
