We take your training seriously.

Over the last decade, we've developed and refined a complete training package based on the USPPA guidelines. Our students go home with not only the skills necessary to fly paramotors, but the knowledge to keep themselves and others safe and the wisdom to make sound decisions as Pilot in Command of an aircraft.

What's Included?

You'll be training on our gear. Your training is broken down into 2 phases. First off, you'll get extensive training in the field ground handling your glider and classroom work covering laws of the sky, glider and motor essentials, weather and safety.
In Phase 2, we'll put everything together in flight and develop your ability to skillfully take off, fly and land your glider.

Ready to Fly?

If you're ready to take the first steps towards flight or still have questions, fill out our New Pilot Contact form and we'll get back to you to discuss our schedule options or assist you in any way.

    I am still flying 5 years later. Every day of class I was learning new critical information for safely piloting a PPG. Bottom line is if you want to fly PPG for a long time and stay alive you need lessons from a teacher with a ton of experience flying and teaching. Matt and Dave are the guys. This is as safe as it gets.

    I did my training in early August of 2022. Dave, Brad, and Matt were all phenomenal instructors. The classroom section was great and I feel like I have a great understanding behind the technical side of ppg. The actual flying was also great, they made sure that we understood all the mistakes we were making, and corrected them early. We even had the opportunity to do a cross country at the end of the week. Overall I would recommend MidwestPPG to anyone looking to get into the sport.

    I trained at Midwest PPG in the Fall of 2021. Dave and Brad were super professional in how they run their training program. They prioritize safety above all else and after very thorough ground instruction, I felt very confident to take my first flights into the sky. Having those guys as calm voices on the radio when you have a million things going thru your head as a new pilot. is incredibly reassuring. They covered all the basics and then some in the their ground school and I can confidently say they are my go-to referral for anyone wanting to get into the sport.
