Book Now
paragliding-1

Typical Time: 6 hours

Level of Difficulty: Easy to Moderate. Student pilots need to run at a jog in order to launch and land.

Cost: One Day Lesson $200 per person, minimum 2 participants.

Paragliding includes: All necessary equipment, knowledgeable instructors and necessary shuttle. Students should bring sneakers for footwear. Light cotton pants, jeans or any athletic pants are recommended.

Overview

The One Day Paragliding Lesson includes all equipment, instruction, and rides back to launch (no hiking). We start the day with an introduction to the equipment.  This is a sport where you get to have fun right away instead of being bogged down by classroom and theory.  We practice inflating and controlling the wing on the ground. We learn the launch sequence, and steering skills before introducing the element of flight. Students enjoy working on ground handling and controlling the glider. After we have good ground handling skills, your instructor will go over the basic flight plan as we watch other pilots demonstrate what a solo flight looks like.  All solo flights are radio-supervised and entirely self paced. Before launching, instructor and student recap the flight plan and landing procedure. Then you’re off on your first flight!

After landing, a company van will be down to pick you up and bring you to the top of the hill for more flying. Your instructor supervises you on the radio during your flight into the landing zone. As you progress we will introduce new concepts to help you improve your technique. Our world class training hill is famous, and people come from all over the world to paraglide in Santa Barbara at this perfect location overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the Channel Islands.

paragliding

Typical Time: 3 hours

Level of Difficulty: Easy to Moderate. Student pilots need to run at a jog in order to launch and land.

Cost: Tandem Flight $200 per person, minimum 2 participants.

Paragliding includes: All necessary equipment, knowledgeable instructors and necessary shuttle. Students should bring sneakers for footwear. Light cotton pants, jeans or any athletic pants are recommended.

Overview

Tandem Lessons can be enjoyed by anyone less than 250 pounds of any age with no prior experience necessary. These two person tandem flights with knowledgeable instructors can accommodate large and small groups at our flight park. Minors need to be accompanied by an adult. We use a larger canopy designed to carry the weight of two people. Each person has their own harness, and the passenger and instructor are connected by spreader bars. The Tandem instructor sits in the back and the passenger sits up front. We organize our equipment and do a simulation before our actual launch. When the wind is right we count to three and build energy by running together as the wing comes overhead into the flying position. We run with the wing as we are lifted off the ground, up, up, and away!
