About Us

Mount Paragliding

Mount Paragliding is passionate about teaching people this beautiful sport.

Having a group of like minded individuals on a
sunny weekend, enjoying life and flight is something that we are very proud to
be providing. For students to fly solo after ground handling, often on day one,
is so exhilarating it's hard to put into words. We love teaching this sport.

Darrell teaches with a passion to give people a once in a lifetime feeling of free flight. The smiles after day one say it all.

Capturing Lasting Memories with Andrea's Camera Collections.

We designed a simulator to instruct how to launch, fly and land prior to flying, its been a real game changer building confidence prior to leaving the ground.

It enables us to fit the harness correctly to train weight shift with correct brake inputs for smooth controlled turns and landing flare training.

A real game changer for our students and removes guesswork and builds confidence prior to solo flights.

VR Simulator

We also now teach using Virtual Reality. This is a fantastic addition to our teaching and gets the thumbs up from everyone who uses it.

Experience what it feels like to leave the ground and fly a paraglider it really is very realistic.

In VR you can practice thermal flying, top landings and active flying in turbulence even landing on a floating pontoon on the water.

This is a game changer.

Our Philosophy

Teaching is about understanding the individual's way of learning and adapting the approach to get the best out of everyone.

The learning phase of flying is a very memorable experience and if this phase is done well, it will keep you safe and enjoying paragliding for a lifetime.

We provide a friendly, family learning environment, and believe that by sharing knowledge and experiences we all become better pilots.

Our goal is to produce pilots with the mental and practical skills required to enjoy the sport without nervous take-offs and questionable landings. Pilots will have the skills to travel to other sites, assess the surroundings and fly confidently.

Skilled pilots will help to grow our safe and beautiful sport.
