SPEED FLYING

Speed flying is a newer form of Paragliding using smaller canopies to fly closer to the terrain. Speed riding is when you combine this with skiing. The canopy allows you to do things that make skiers jealous, such as never wondering if the cliff is too big! Careful planning of your flight and weather considerations as well as knowing your abilities is what keeps you out of harms way. If you are interested in these two fun aspects of our sport you will first enroll in our P2 lesson program then we will adjust your lessons with this in mind. You need to be an expert skier as well as committed to first learning some basic paragliding skills. Cost for a P2/speed flying rating is $1800
