About Us

Training pilots since 2008

Our goal

We want you to learn how to safely fly a paraglider.  This takes extensive training and, most importantly, lots of practice but it is worth the effort.  It is the rawest form of aviation and the closest thing there is to being a bird.

Accreditation

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
