I could not ask for a better pilot. I have been looking around for the past 18 months for an instructor that would show me, understand and specially answer all of my questions. The tandem flight was great. Even other pilots have good things to say about Steve.

We took our son Sam to paraglide for this 10th birthday. We hiked up and met Steven at the top. Everything was top notch. Steven was friendly and professional. Together they flew for about an hour. Sam even got to hold the controls and make some turns himself, with Steven providing appropriate guidance. It was a magical experience, and we'd... More

Awesome experience! My husband and I went paragliding for the first time for his birthday. Steve Wilson is a phenomenal guide. He took his time locking in the harness and checking the wing covering all safety measures which was very reassuring and put me at ease as a first-timer. Once we were up he explained about weather patterns and thermals... More

In my earlier days, I jumped out of several perfectly good airplanes, but drifted away from skydiving when wing suits started making an appearance and my first daughter was born. Diving was becoming faster and more extreme with new boundaries being pushed on a regular basis (similar to rock climbing these days.) The risk factor was simply beyond what I... More

I had a fantastic tandem paragliding session with Steve. The view was amazing. We stayed up about 40min even though I am rather heavy (240lbs) which makes it harder. Steve paid close attention to what I would respond to and tried to make the experience as enjoyable as possible for me. My flight was scheduled for the end of the... More

Happened to be in the Seattle/Issaquah area on vacation. My father had seen paragliders on previous trips to Tiger Mountain and suggest I try it (tandem). We found Parafly Paragliding LLC online and called the morning we planned to go. They were able to fit us in that day. Steven Wilson met us on the mountain. I hiked up and... More

I went paragliding with Steve to celebrate my 30th birthday. The experience was enjoyable and memorable - the entire time I felt so safe I was never had time to be nervous. The conditions were perfect, there were numerous other paragliders and hang gliders in the air. Steve even let me control the parachute - what a great adventure! The... More

Steven Wilson and his instructors are fantastic. They made tandem paragliding seem simple. They were super professional, my "guy" made sure the lines to the parasail were all straight and parallel to the wind. I watched folks with other companies fall and struggle while we were textbook, it made me feel great about doing this. Being in the air was... More

Thank you- thank you- thank you Steve! My husband and I had an awesome time - so much fun. Steve was not just a great pilot, but a great read on who he is taking - he seemed to know exactly how to talk me through everything to keep me relaxed. My husband loved it so much that he now... More

Thank you Steven. What a wonderful experience the 4 of us had! I was so nervous at first but then I felt confident I was in good hands and was able to relax and enjoy the flight!
