    1. Is there a weight limit?
      There is no weight limit for this experience. 
    2. Where will I be flying?
      Depending on the weather conditions on the day of your experience, you will fly either in Tillamook or at the Columbia River Gorge.
    3. Do you jump off cliffs? How do you take off?
      We do not jump off anything.  We pull the paraglider up into the prevailing wind.  We have it controlled and fully inflated overhead as we run down the slope into the wind to gain take off speed.  This is usually done in just a few steps.
    4. What happens when the wind stops?
      We do not need wind to fly.  Paragliders can be launched, flown and landed with the greatest of ease in no wind.  Although, without wind or thermals rising, it would just be a gentle glide down to the Landing Zone.
    5. Do paraglider pilots have back up parachutes?
      Absolutely!  We all have integrated reserve parachutes built into our harnesses.  Deployments of the reserve parachute are extremely rare.  We also carry radios so we can stay in contact with each other as well.
