ABOUT

To give you a few details on our great training program, our school provides all the gear you need while training including the paraglider wings, harnesses, helmets, communication radios, paramotors, fuel, hang test and flight simulator unit that resides in our large shop, heated and air conditioned indoor comfortable classroom, awesome training and flying fields close by, etc.

Our proven course runs 9 consecutive days from Saturday morning to the following weekend on Sunday afternoon. We know that amount of time is a large commitment, but over the 18 years that we have been training our students, we have found it to produce very good results that makes awesome pilots, which is very difficult to do in smaller time chunks. 

It is a demanding course that will have you sleeping very well each evening, but is well worth it.

We are a full service school that offers top brand equipment such as Parajet, Scout, and the new Gravity Paramotors, and all the top brand paraglider wings. We will help you get set up with just the right gear at just the right time, as there is no need to worry about any upfront purchases, high pressure sales tactics, and you have the peace of mind of being able to fly before you buy.

 

When you end up breaking the cost down per hour, which includes over 100 hours of expert instruction, and the use of all of our great school equipment, it ends up being very economical to learn how to safely fly and be an awesome pilot. You are also much less likely to have accidents or mishaps causing damage to your gear or injury to yourself. We also allow students who are progressing quickly to use our more advanced wings and Paramotors during training, which means you don’t end up with gear that you may outgrow quickly, and that ends up saving you considerable money. 

 

We are located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest about 25 miles south of Seattle Washington in the town of Puyallup.  

 

We have a strong love and passion for aviation, and love being able to share it with others, including all the tips and tricks we have learned over the last 21 years.

 

Please don’t hesitate to let us know if we can help answer any more questions.
