 What is Paragliding?

Paragliding is the simplest form of human flight, and fastest growing type of foot-launched flying. A paraglider is a non-motorized, foot-launched inflatable wing. It is easy to transport, launch, and land. Paragliders are an advanced evolutionary aircraft that can go places and do things unlike any other vehicle. The wing itself is constructed of rip-stop nylon from which the pilot is suspended by strong lines. These high-performance fabrics coupled with a growing comprehension of our micro-meteorology have permitted the development of our incredible sport. The pilot is buckled into a harness and finds the sitting position which provides the most comfort. You actually fly like a bird, soaring upwards on currents of air. Paragliders operate in unprecedented harmony with the natural elements. Our slow flying speeds (about 15 to 25 mph) enable us to climb in small thermals and dual with the birds.

 What is Paramotoring?

Paramotoring is very similar to paragliding, with the difference that you carry a motor on your back, that way you don’t need a mountain to take of from. You can do it from many fields or beaches.

 How do I get Started?

There are different ways to start. The simplest and most economical is to sign up for your P1 + P2 certification combo. If you want to learn a little more about the sport, you can purchase an introductory day (it is the same for paragliding and paramotoring), this will allow you to get in contact and learn about the equipment, kite it on the ground and meet your future instructor.  Some people are able to do little training hill flights on this day, but most people just stay on the ground.  We do not offer tandem flights.
