About Us

Training pilots since 2008

Our goal

We want you to learn how to safely fly a paraglider.  This takes extensive training and lots of practice, especially on the ground kiting the glider.  But it is worth the effort!  It is the rawest form of aviation and the closest thing there is to being a bird.  If you have dreams of yourself flying through the air, they will end when you begin flying a paraglider.


Paragliding – Professional Air Sports Association (PASA) school #23.  Instructors are U.S. Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association (USHPA) certified.

Powered paragliding – U.S. Powered Paragliding Association (USPPA) school #1672

This website is dedicated in memory of the heroes of U.S. Navy SEAL Team 10 and the SEALS in Operation Redwing who perished fighting the enemy in Afghanistan, June 2005.  We are proud to train warriors of the U.S. Armed Forces and those of our allies – Please view I Fought for You.  We honor Taylor Morris and warriors like him, including his wife, Danielle, who stood by her man after he was gravely wounded in 2012 while fighting the Mohammedans.
