Location of the incident:
Type of Incident

Pilot was flying from his usual large open area which is about 3 miles away from a general aviation that conducts sky-diving operations. While thermalling, he saw an airplane on descent about a mile away and observed it change course to come closer. The aircraft approached and the PPG pilot did a steep spiral to avoid wake turbulence. They missed each other by about 200′.

ed: It is our requirement as ultralight pilots to avoid all certified aircraft.
