About the Author: Jeff Goin has been flying since age 13, starting with gliders and now as a 737 Captain for a major airline. But when he discovered powered paragliding, everything changed as the sport became a burning passion. He founded the U.S. Powered Paragliding Association in 2001 and wrote the script to their top-selling Risk & Reward video which was produced by Lite Touch Films. The Powered Paragliding Bible was a result of concern over the lack of a truly comprehensive training manual.
Jeff has been a 3-time USPPA National Champion and placed 6th in the 2009 World Air Games, an invitational all-expenses-paid competition of the world's top 22 pilots. More than anything, he's passionate about sharing sound information on the sport of Powered Paragliding.
