Learned to fly Paramotors here and the team was great. Friendly knowledgeable and good teachers. That have also built a nice community of pilots so there is often something to do even if the weather is not in your favor.

John, Heath and Dave are the heart of Hang-glider / Paraglider and Power para glider training. Incredibly knowledgeable, excited about what they do, and they motivate with positive feedback and repetitive training. I am always impressed by how much they pay attention to each student. Very accommodating, yet refuse to allow a pilot trainee unnecessary risk. Thanks Dad! (LOL) Now, If Morningside could control the weather. . .

We went hang gliding, zip lining and stayed at the Castle and cabins. Everyone was incredibly nice and professional. Rob and Thor were quick favorites of our kids making the tours even more memorable. The cabins are rustic but clean. You just can’t beat the views. Can’t wait to go back. Far exceeded our expectations just wish we had booked the cabins longer.

My wife and I decided to pursue our P1 paragliding licenses together. We had both been exposed to solo flights in a few parts of the world and decided we wanted a structured experience with an emphasis on safety. After the P1 I proceeded to the P2. Heath (manager/instructor) and Johnny (instructor) are both top notch. They seem to have all seeing eyes (yes they both noticed the mistake you made even though they may be on another part of the hill with other students) and an acute knowledge of the weather in that flight park. The focus on safety is evident from day 1 by way of a 45 minute weather and meteorology briefing. You never just show up and fly because they say it's good, they very specifically make a point to show you the method to the madness of trying to interpret all the available weather resources. (My last day of the P2 course included the same 45 minutes of weather discussion). After the weather/meteorology lesson you get geared up and sent out to the respective spot on the property based on your level in the program. There are days when there are tons of students all over the property. There will also be days when it's a small handful and you're getting very personalized instruction. Keep this in mind as you are scheduling lessons coupled with the fickle weather. You will rarely get 1:1 instruction based on the finite number of instructors, weather window, and student interest. There are good lessons to be learned from the experiences of other students though and it's good for the sport to have increasing interest/demand. They have tons of gear for students to use which is a critical benefit for those planning to buy their own gear at some point. I went through every harness they have to find the model that was most comfortable for example. I also bought a full setup through the school based on tested models and their expert advice. I found the prices to be very reasonable and not dramatically different from what you might find online, but the value of their advice coupled with the opportunity to try out different models made it a no brainer to buy through them. They can also service your gear in the future. I highly recommend this flight school for those who want a structured learning program from start to finish.
