Ground handling paragliders at the flight centre

Like most things, “You Get What You Pay For” also applies to paragliding lessons. Cheaper is not always the best or safest option. Rest assured that Paraglide Canada employs fully rated instructors and provides new, fully certified wings and equipment throughout your course of instruction.

Paragliding is a form of aviation. Fully developing your paragliding skills and participating enjoyably in the sport over the long term depends a lot on the thoroughness of your initial instruction. Quality, certified instruction is money well invested.

Fly BC…with a paraglider!

Flying has never been this much fun. A sunny day, light wind, beautiful scenery, good friends and an inflatable wing to carry you into the sky. This is the way you’ve always wanted to fly. Nothing between you and the ground but clear air. There is no other feeling like it – paragliding, the only way to fly.


Paraglide Canada can show you how to become a foot-launched paragliding pilot from our purpose-built flight centre located along Highway 6 in Coldstream, BC. Get the facts on paragliding from Glenn Derouin, fully rated senior paragliding instructor with The Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association of Canada and owner/operator of Paraglide Canada.
