Hello, I am new to paragliding and am looking for some advice on schools or instructors. I live in FL but can travel anywhere for a week or so to learn. Sure could use any tips or contacts, thanks very much in advance.

I have flown hang gliders for 9 years and am recently certified to fly paragliders.

If you are interested in motors and para-motor lessons, contact Bill Heaner at Revolution Paramotors in Salt Lake City. Google Revolution Paramotors. He taught me to fly hang gliders, was a comptetitive aerobatics pilot and has given up hang gliding to fly paragliders. He is an amazing paraglider pilot and wasn't satisfied with the offering of motors, so he started a company and designed his own. They are high quality, and he is a great instructor who cares about your safety and longevity in the sport.

I learned to fly pgs with Superfly, also in Salt Lake City. They too can hook you up with motors and lessons.

Hope it helps
Eric
