Frequently asked questions about Paraglide Canada

Why should I choose Paraglide Canada for my flight training?


Paraglide Canada has 3 private launch sites located just a couple of kilometers from our flight centre. All sites are ideal for teaching. A gentle lower launch is perfect for your first few flights, then we progress to an 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. King Eddy Landing Zone
