PPG Certificate Stage 1 must be completed before you can sign up for Stage 2
At Poliglide we have decided it’s time to change the delivery of training to suit the individual; to allow each pilot to travel their own path to the sky; to recognise the huge drain 2 weeks of training can have on the family and working lives of busy people; to make the dream of flight not only more achievable but a more holistic and enjoyable experience.
It no longer makes sense for us to sign everyone up to the same two week, intensive course.
We love to fly, it’s our passion, and we want you to become a pilot that recognises that the completion of training is just the beginning of a lifetime of successful and safe aviation.
To become a certified Paramotor Pilot the Hang Gliding Federation of Australia (HGFA) requires you to complete 20 hours of Paramotoring with 30 flights over a minimum of 12 individual days of training. With your dedication to the training, making sure you are both mentally and physically prepared and if the weather cooperates, this is achievable and some students really like the idea of a 12 day flying holiday. A growing number of pilots don’t want to follow that path though, they want to break the training up into less stressful, more enjoyably, time sensitive and financially manageable blocks. Additionally, after running this course for some time we have learned that breaking the course up to allow students to recover from the physical/mental demands of the training has beneficial results on the safe progression of learning.
Stage 2 consists of a minimum 5 more days of Paramotor flights, including a day of Paramotor cross country flying. This can be completed in a block, or by joining with our training over a series of weekends/singular days according to the demands of your schedule. Your Stage 2 flights can be done at the same location or you may choose to complete your 20 hours at one of our other locations.
