Lessons

We can help you experience the joy of free flight in its purest form. Paragliding is a very unique and special feeling. One we’ve been able to share with others ranging from 14 to 70 years old. The following video will give you an idea of how instruction works. It shows you the vantage point of flying tandem, how students launch and from the vantage point of someone’s first solo flight.

We are the only local school with the following:

1) Dedicated instructors available every flyable day. That means we are available whenever your schedule (and the weather) allows. Other instructors have day jobs and can’t always make it out.

2) We are located directly north of the landing zone. Come over for some instruction and then head up the hill for a flight.

3) Training Hill

4) Zip line for practicing reserve deployments.

5) Dedicated classroom with large screen TV, large scale topographical maps, 3D models of the terrain and more.

6) Saturday morning chalk talk/instruction

7) Video review of your launches. We video almost every launch and make these available to you.

8) Two full-time instructors (one on launch and one in the landing zone) and several part time instructors.

9) On site sales room – you can try out different harnesses and wings before purchasing them.

10) World class guest speakers – Past speakers have included world record distance holders and the owner/designer of Gin gliders (one of the largest distributors of gliders).
