Paragliding

  • Sep 15, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please read ALL the details BEFORE RSVPing.

Want to fly?! Want to feel the wind under your power? Now is your chance!

PENNSYLVANIA PARAGLIDING instructors teach you the basics, introduce you to the equipment. Demonstrate kiting, launching and landing. Most people even fly solo the very first day under instructor supervision, if your skills are good enough and the conditions allow it. They supply all the equipment, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to learn. I have done it and LOVED every second of it. Trust me, if I could do it...so can you! Check out my flight from last year here.

UPDATED 9/12: We will fly on SUNDAY, 9/15.

PAYMENT: 

The group rate is $210 for a full day. That includes safety instructions, equipment, practice, and actually getting up in the air.

REQUIREMENTS: 
Participants are required to sign a Liability Release Form. If you are married, your spouse MUST also sign the waiver.

BRING WITH YOU:
You'll need to bring the signed waiver, drinking water, lunch, hiking shoes or sneakers, gloves, hat or helmet if you have one, comfortable clothing. (Remember you'll be wearing a harness through your legs and around your waist.) Also, keep in mind we will be out in a field with no bathroom facilities.

RESTRICTIONS:
Experience is limited to individuals weighing less than 250 lbs and are at least 12 years of age. Individuals who are pregnant, have broken bones or other physical conditions which are considered unsafe conditions are not eligible to participate.

    You guys were amazing! Awesome flying! Spectacular resilience after some close calls. I am so glad you had the courage to RSVP and the intestinal fortitude to go all the way! Congratulations on your first paragliding solo flight!

    I somehow ended up with a brised tendon I my ankle. There is no pain, just a lump. Can I still do this or does it require running and possibly twisting ankle which may worsen the condition? I REALLY WANT TO DO THIS!!!

      Oops,"liked" your comment by mistake. Sorry about your ankle :-(

      September 15, 2013

    • Lisa J.

      There may be some running involved. The second part of training is called kiting which is working the parachute on the ground. I say come, try and stop if there is anything you can't do. The school will probably let you go back if you don't complete the training. :-)

    Hi Lisa can you add me as an RSVP 'Yes'? It will not let me RSVP without paying. I already paid the last time when it was cancelled due to thunderstorms I do not need to pay again. Thanks!

    Can I sign up if I can only make the 14th? If it rains I could go another weekend but not the 15th. Will that work?

    August 7, 2013

    • Lisa J.

      Because the are so few spaces open, it should be for people who can be available the whole weekend. Sorry.

      August 7, 2013

  • Angela

    I've always wanted to try this...can't wait!

    1 · August 7, 2013

  • Dina

    I'm going to try to make it! Looks like fun. I'm going to be moving, so it'll be a busy few weeks for me, but I'll try. I'll wait till we get closer to the date, though, so that I don't prevent anyone else from going.
