Powered Parachute Flying Handbook

Chapter 1 - Introduction to the Powered Parachute

Medical Summary — “The Bottom Line”

Before even approaching the PPC, you must take a moment to reflect upon your current medical, physical, and psychological condition. It is in this reflective moment that you should begin to evaluate your ability to safely conduct the flight. Once satisfied with your self-evaluation, the preflight inspection can then continue. Using the “I’M SAFE” checklist is a smart way to start your preflight before getting to the powered parachute. Prior to flight, assess your fitness as well as the aircraft’s airworthiness.
