USPPA Instructor # 886 – Bill Stoll


Bill Stoll (USPPA Instructor /Member # 886)

I started out with the standard thirst for adventure, and flying ultralights seemed to fit. I initially started in the 90’s with the buget priced mind and purchase of a old design weight-shift ultralight called a Eiper preformance (similar to Quicksilver now). Basically it was a hanglider with a 100cc Yamaha pusher type engine.. seated upright on a plastic swing seat.

I taught myself and learnt that this wasn’t the smartest but after incidents I succeeded to master that flying.

Eventually because of lack of a hangar and long setup and tear down time I searched out another way to get into the air and yet have money for other hobbies.

I found PPG on the internet and seen locally at EAA in Oshkosh…

I searched and spent money on used gear through the internet (e-bay) and found that gear and my money was not spent wisely. When I went for instruction and learned more about the sport. My wing was shot and my motor was not very comfortable in the air.

Received PPG instruction in 2005 and PPG2 ratting in 2006 from Mike Canella with NIPPGI.

Received PG instruction with Fly Above All (Chad Bastian) and PG2 rating in 2008.
