Learn to Paraglide – Paragliding lessons in Utah
The most important thing to know is that our paragliding lessons are FUN!
Meet the Instructors
Super Fly is comprised of Chris Santacroce and Jeffrey Farrell; along with five distinguished, experienced and certified instructor/ tandem pilots. When you learn at Super Fly, you may be learning from an accomplished competition pilot, an examiner for the national organization or one of the top aerobatics pilots in the country. One thing is for sure; you will be learning from a personable and confident instructor that knows how to have fun while keeping things safe.
Where & When Do Lessons Take Place?
We operate at the world famous “Point of the Mountain” situated 25 minutes from the Salt Lake City Intl. Airport. Come to Utah to get your P2 Pilot rating! We teach all year round but the weather is nicest from April to October. You can begin your paragliding lessons on any day. Most people schedule a four or five day visit and then return at a later date for a few more lessons before earning their wings. We can recommend some lodging options for you; spanning all the way from camping at the flying site to staying at the finest resorts in Utah.
What are Paragliding Lessons Like?
We pride ourselves on offering one on one or one on two instruction. Some students are comfortable with a quick progression and others move along very slowly. We have learned that over the long term, the student that progresses more slowly will actually enjoy the process more. In the end, our students consistently exceed the USHPA minimum requirements for attaining a P2 rating and have a great time doing so. They graduate with skills and experience that are way above average. Read on for more detail on our paragliding courses.
Deluxe P2 Pilot Certification Package $1,600
The Deluxe course is hard to match. The most important thing to know about this course is that it is unlimited! That means you can return to the Point of the Mountain or any other place that we happen to be teaching; and be welcomed like family. Years from now when you want to become an advanced pilot (and have the rating that goes along with it) we are here to help you along at no additional charge. All that we ask of you is that you be firmly dedicated to becoming the best pilot that you can be. Our students graduate with excellent skills, solid experience and their own equipment; so get excited! Your day will start early; the lessons are somewhat taxing both mentally and physically. Look forward to ground school and classroom sessions during the mid-day and then an evening lesson that goes until sunset. Please send a $200 deposit in advance of your arrival. Students, in general, start to purchase their own equipment by the fifth day or the twentieth flight. We are experts at finding the best possible equipment for our students.
Introductory lesson $200
Do you want to find out if paragliding is for you? Would you like to strap on a glider and give it a try? Then an introductory lesson is best. If you continue on with our Deluxe P2 course, the $200 will be applied to your lesson package.
Why are Super Fly Paragliding Lessons the Best?
Don’t forget! We have been teaching full time since 1991 and during that time we have excelled in many areas including: teaching beginners, teaching people how to teach and teaching people how to fly tandem. We have even been recognized by the USHPA and featured in numerous magazines and television programs. If you check around, you will find that our instructors and our program are highly recommended. Many pilots come to us for continued education and remark that they wish they had come to us in the first place.
Our training site is one of the most consistent in the country which means that you will be taking your first flights, soaring and working on the finer points of paragliding in short order. No doubt you will be making the most of your valuable time. If you can’t travel to Utah, let us know where you are and when you are free. We have associate instructors throughout the continent; some of which can travel to you.
