Great time at our recent Flight Club season opener at the Yaletown Brew Pub. Lots of new pilot smiles and enthusiasm for what promises to be a great season.
Discovery Solo Theory evening brought lots of "aha" moments for pilots on their first steps in understanding the sky and how to launch, fly and land a paraglider.
Brand new from ICARO the Twice TE. Very excited about the landmark new tandem paraglider with many innovative features. Read all about the Twice TE here.
A paraglider is the latest evolution of recreational flying. Made of engineered fabric and lines, a paraglider fits in a backpack and is ready to launch in minutes. Harnessing the energy of the sun and the wind, the paraglider becomes a wing with which we can safely soar the sky for hours.
If you've ever had the dream of flight, up with the birds, and free from all your earthly worries, we can make that dream come true quickly and safely with one of our entry level first flight paragliding courses.
An optimized teaching method on the perfect slope to get you paragliding solo immediately on the fastest and safest progression. You will paraglide only a few feet above the ground, leaving you feeling secure and empowered.
We do evening classroom theory to make sure you understand paragliding aerodynamics, weather, and how to launch, fly and land your paraglider. At sunrise, we take you out to the ideal training hill for Slope Soaring, as above, to perfect your launch and landing skills. At sunset, you take your first high mountain paragliding solo flight, carefully supervised by two paragliding flight command instructors via ground-to-air radio.
As you gain experience as a paraglider pilot, you will learn to soar dynamic wind and engage thermals to gain altitude and fly for hours, paragliding intimately with friends in the sky.
If you train and prepare extensively to become an ace pilot, you may gain a level of precision that empowers you to enter a whole new paradigm of flying...
Paragliding: The sky is your playground and you can go play with the birds!
