Paraglide Canada is the only school that does all training flights as high flights, no shortcuts. We can do this as we have 3 private, training friendly launch sites located just a few kilometers from our flight centre. A gentle astro turf 1000ft. high lower launch is perfect for your first few guided flights, then we progress to our upper launch. From both upper and lower launch you will land in our large landing area below.

Paraglide Canada has access to four local flying sites, so no matter the wind direction, we invariably always have a launchable site. Our short turn around time allows us to be back on launch within 9 minutes maximising your airtime throughout the day and making the most of your valuable time.

Here are a few essentials:

- Light hiking boots/shoes
- Windproof jacket
- Light weight gloves (mountain biking/mechanics gloves)
- Suntan lotion
- Long pants
- Water bottle and snacks
- Smart phone and laptop (if possible) for online log book

The Okanagan Valley is the premier fruit and wine growing region of BC primarily because of the excellent weather in the area. Long sunny days, calm winds and warm temperatures makes the Okanagan Valley a meca for paragliding not only in BC but the whole of North America.
