NB: Before the RAA will accept you to fly any wheeled launch flight under an Ecliptic (ram air) wing, we are told a pilot is required to have logged 20 hours of flight with an Ecliptic Paraglider, in 2015 the only way to legally fly a Wheeled Powered Paraglider with an Ecliptic wing in Australia, is to obtain a "Powered Parachute" accreditation via the RAA.
However, after 5 years delays, the HGFA finally wrote a direct "Wheeled Training Syllabus".
