Paragliding Experience for One near Grand Rapids, MI

  If you are looking for adventure and want to know what it’s like to defy gravity, then you’ve landed in the right place. Paragliding is a recreational and competitive adventure sport offering the simplest form of human flight. Adventures vary from short flights launched from favorite local spots to longer flights launched from remote destinations. You decide.

 

If you’re new to paragliding, here are a few things you’ll want to know: a paraglider is a free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft powered by the wind. It consists of a canopy, or “wing”, a harness, brake cords which control the direction and speed of flight, and carabineers which secure the harness to the wing. Today’s paragliders are designed to keep you aloft for extended periods of time as you enjoy the tranquility of flight and breathtaking views from the sky.

 

If you’re looking for a new hobby or have always wanted to give paragliding a try, then tandem paragliding is the perfect way to experience the freedom of flight. It requires no prior experience and just a few simple instructions before you begin. Once you receive basic ground instruction, you’ll be strapped into the paraglider, harnessed to your certified instructor, and then taught basic maneuvers as you sail the skies. Yes, it’s really that simple.

 

Come experience the thrill of flight and soak in panoramic views of mountains, meadows, rolling hills and so much more. Every paragliding adventure is unique and the sky is the limit for aerial delight. Flying isn’t just for the birds. You can do it too.
