What You Will Do

Join us in discovering the ultimate experience of flying and learn why Paragliding has become such a popular adventure sport in the last few years.

During the 3-day intro course, you'll learn all the basics about paragliding, weather, practice kiting on the ground, go on a teaching tandem flight with your instructor. During this flight, you will be able to take control of the glider, make some turns, and get a much better feeling and understanding of what the art of paragliding is all about. If by day 3 you're ready, you'll get to fly solo!

"Mauri is a great instructor, hands down the best in Boulder! His knowledge of the sport is evident in his teaching. I felt very confident and safe while learning with Mauri. My experience learning how to fly with him was fun, informative, and exciting. If you are looking for a great paragliding instructor or a fun tandem flying experience I highly recommend Boulder Paragliding." - Sam M
