Product Description

Have you always dreamed of the adventure and freedom that comes when you learn to fly a powered parachute (PPC)? This is the course that will make your dream to learn to fly a reality.

No matter what your dreams are as a pilot, I am here to help you discover what a rewarding experience flying can be. Let me help you reach this goal, with my one-of-a-kind course. I'll show you how fun and rewarding flying can be, and explain everything you need to know to fly a PPC, whether it be a single-seat Ultralight (no license required) or two-seat Light-Sport Aircraft, LSA (Sport Pilot license required).

To earn your license, you must pass two FAA tests: the knowledge (or written) test, and the Practical test /Checkride which is an oral interview and a flight test with an examiner. My Sport Pilot Student Course Course for Powered Parachute will not only help you pass both these tests, it will give you the real world knowledge you need after you earn your license.

"I operate my own flight school, Sport Aviation Center, so I know your time and money are precious. That's why my course was developed to save you both. This is not a weekend "cram course." It is a comprehensive home study companion to your flight training, and it will make your lessons more efficient, more fun and more complete. Just add a flight instructor!" - Paul Hamilton, CFI, DPE

This course is for the pilot who is training in either a full-glass cockpit powered parachute LSA or in a PPC with analog gauges.

You´ll benefit from Paul Hamilton´s unique learning system

Many folks ask me what makes my courses different and why my students tend to learn to fly so easily and score so highly on their tests. The short answer is that I take complex information, and make it clear, simple, easy and fun to learn.

Most important, though, I developed a combination video/book/CD-based knowledge delivery system that puts you in the pilot´s seat. Anytime you have the time, you can complete a learning segment and your course will track your progress.

How Paul Hamilton's videos get you the knowledge you need ... fast!

The videos are specifically designed to efficiently give you the vital flying knowledge you´ll use for the rest of your flying career. When the pilot´s point of view teaches you best, I put you in the cockpit. I even shoot from mutliple camera angles so you can see clearly what is going on inside and outside the PPC. For those tough knowledge areas, I provide rich presentations including animations and graphics that communicate clearly and concisely just what you need to know.
