I did the three day paragliding course with Lisa and had a great time. Lisa is a great instructor and helped everyone learn at their own pace.

I did my paragliding license with Lisa and I can't recommend her enough. She is a great instructor and her level of enthusiasm for the paragliding and teaching will make you never want to leave. She caters for everyone differently depending on their learning types and time restraints. She really makes you feel like part of the family. Shes got a wealth of knowledge and experience and will get you started perfectly for your long and safe flying career. All the instruction and equipment is of top quality. Her instructors Ben and Allan are great too. I learnt with her in Queenstown and am going to go to Oz to fly there in winter. 10/10 :) Elias

Today myself and boyfriend did the day course with Lisa. We had an incredible day! Lisa is so passionate and knowledgeable about paragliding and made the whole experience a lot of fun. We just wanted to give it a go but are now definitely considering one of the longer courses. Thank you Extreme Air. We may see you again soon 😃

I am 19 years old and recently had the privilege of beginning to learn how to paraglide with Lisa from Extreme Air. This was an incredibly rewarding experience that I could not recommend highly enough. Lisa is an amazing instructor that allowed myself, and everyone else in my group, to feel safe and motivated as they learned this new skill. I completed the PG1 course over the 7th to 9th of January in 2019, and found the Lisa’s teaching of this course to be very well structured and engaging. Over these 3 days, I felt that I developed a good grip of both the theory and practical skills while feeling safe and within my comfort zone at all times. I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to have developed such a great foundation to this exciting new sport as a result of Lisa’s exceptional teaching, and am excited to pursue my PG2 qualification with her in the future!
