Outdoor Recreation - Kelley Barracks Bldg. 3320 Google Map

Aviation sports have become one of the most exciting and interesting pastimes of our age.  Man has spent decades perfecting the art of flight and now you can be part of that movement.  Spend the day with a dedicated instructor learning the basics of paragliding in this taster course.   Students will progress from classroom presentation, equipment introduction and demonstration to canopy familiarization and launch practice.  After that, its off to the training hill for some practical guidance, practice, and short, low flights from the training slope – that’s right you get to fly on the first day!

Participants need to bring/wear sturdy over the ankle boots, comfortable well fitting clothing, sun protection/sunscreen, snacks, water, and euros for meals. Bring your own personal tolietries and a packed lunch as you will be on the training hill most of the day.
