Learn to fly - Paragliding and Powered Paragliding School

Paragliding and powered paragliding are one of the most popular ways to fly and are great for beginners. It’s the most cost effective, simple and accessible form of aviation available.

Thanks to huge improvements in gear design, paragliding and paramotoring are among the safest aviation sports today. At our school, safety is the number one priority. We only use brand new modern training equipment and our instructors have current first aid certificates. Instructors are also certified by the Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association of Canada and Transport Canada.

There’s never been a better time to get started with your dream of flying. With the help of our experienced instructors, you’ll be airborne in no time. We literally allow students to get airborne after a few training sessions.

We offer packages for both paragliding and paramotoring.
