Why Us

We offer several advantages not offered by any other local school including:

1) The only full-time school at Tiger Mountain – Fly or practice kiting anytime the weather permits. Other instructors have no on-site facilities and are only available at certain times. We have multiple full time instructors and even more part time instructors.

2) The only school located at the landing zone – There are so many advantages to being part of the team: from reviewing your videos on our big screen TVs after flying, post flying bon fires, real bathrooms (vs porta-potties), music, private parking and so much more.

3) The only training hill – Come practice your launches on a nice grassy hill. It’s the only local dedicated training hill and we have stadium lights that allow night time practice and outdoor speakers that bring in music to add to the ambiance.

4) The only dedicated classroom – We are the only local school with any kind of facility, let alone multiple buildings we use for instruction. The classroom includes a large screen TV, topo maps of the area, white boards and more.

5) Equipment Loft – The barn provides harness simulators allowing you to sit in, and try on, your harness before flying or purchasing.

6) Emergency Chute Zip Line – Practice throwing your reserve chute on our zip line. Not offered at any other local school.

7) Experience – No one locally has instructed more students or flown more tandems. Team Chirico built the popular hiking trails up to PooPoo Point, and has been instrumental in bringing world class improvements to the north and south launches.
