How To Fly a Powered Paraglider Trike : Choosing a Paragliding Location

CHAD BASTIAN: Hi. This is Chad Bastian. Welcome
to Expert Village. We’re here to talk about the trike buggy and PPG triking with paragliders.
All right. In this segment, we’re going to be talking about how to choose a flying site
for your PPG trike or your trike buggy. As you can see here, we have a dry lake which
is virtually unobstructed for a very large distance, a really ideal place to practice
initial flights or initial kiting practice just taxing along with the glider. This is
wide open, there’s not even mud holes or anything, really, as far as you can go. We do have challenges
here. Way over there we have some power lines, but we’re going to stay away from those. So,
wherever you go, make sure that you have adequate room for inflation, the roll out on the taxi
and able to launch, not just launch and clear the fence, but to be able to stay as you’re
flying within glide of a landable field all the time. Always give yourself room because
it’s not a matter of if the motor is going to fail, it’s a matter of wind.
