About Us

Who are we?

Pro PPG was founded in June of 2015 as the fulfillment of the dreams of many people in South Texas who always wanted to take to the air and fly like a bird. We are an organization dedicated to promoting the safe enjoyment of Powered Paragliding in all of it’s facets.

What is Powered Paragliding?

Powered Paragliding (also known as PPG) is a type of ultralight aviation.  It is a form of flying that requires training, patience, some physical ability, and skill.  A PPG pilot wears a motor on his back that provides thrust to take to the air using a modified paragliding wing.  Although the wing is made of fabric, once it is inflated it remains rigid and provides all of the same flight characteristics that are found in the wings of any other aircraft.

Powered Paragliding is freedom.  It is one of the safest forms of aviation that has ever been devised, and that is why we are Pro PPG.

      Hi Terry, I remember talking to you. Let’s talk about getting you in the air. There’s nothing worse than someone who wants to but is unable to get into the air. I’ll email you.

    Hi I am a flight instructor at the airport and I am very interested in getting started in this sport after seeing a powered glider team in Oshkosh.

    I saw someone doing this over Mustang island today and having never heard of it, I Googled it which led me here. This is the most exciting sport I have ever seen and I told my husband even if I have to save all my pennies for a year, I HAVE to do this! I used to be deathly afraid of Hights until my brother passed 2 years ago. Since then, I’ve made a promise to overcome all my fears (not wasting my precious life being afraid). I’ve done a few small things but nothing like this and my motivation is through the roof right now!!!! PLEASE let me know how I can begin learning how to PPG!!! I will obsess over it until I can make it a reality lol. Thanks!
