From small props to huge jets to RC models, if it makes lift Caine Everett is all in. His obsession began more than 20 years ago, when he took his first single-engine flight lesson. Ever since, he's basically lived up in the sky, going so far as to become a professional pilot in 2001, flying Learjets and Hawkers for corporate clients. A few years ago, though, he was introduced to a new way of getting off the ground: powered paragliding. Caine quickly developed a passion for PPG, and today, he helps others discover it at Michigan Powered Paragliding in Belleville.
Every two weeks, Michigan Powered Paragliding starts new classes. In just a few days with the company's instructors, students gain the experience—and the confidence—to fly on their own. Students gather at area airports for lessons that utilize certified equipment. Those with a budding interest in powered paragliding can even enlist Caine and his team for introductory lessons, dipping their toes into PPG flight before fully diving in.
