Welcome to You Can Fly PPG

Paramotor training in MA, CT and throughout New England

Learn to fly where you live

At You Can Fly PPG, founded by David Nickerson, we value the importance of paramotor training where you live and building community along the way. Our training program, based on the USPPA syllabus, focuses on ensuring that you are trained in the weather conditions and geographical terrain you will be flying in, while building a strong network of pilots throughout the region. Flying is fun, but flying with friends is even better.


David Nickerson has been training paramotor pilots since 2020.
