Feel the freedom of flying with the maneuverable nylon wings of a paraglider. Lessons with our experienced instructors include an evening lecture that covers equipment, flight theory and logistics. Then on the weekend you'll have 4 hours of practical flight training in a city park to learn how to launch, steer and fly the paraglider. You'll start on flat ground, and as your skill and comfort level increases, you'll gradually progress up the hill to higher take-off points. Prerequisite: none. Includes: instructor, all equipment, 1 make-up day.
