Paragliding Lessons

Instinct does not currently offer paragliding lessons at this time, but please contact us if you are interested in paragliding. Both of our instructors, Mark and Ryan, are also advanced paraglider pilots, but our focus is currently on hang gliding instruction as it is much better suited for the type of flying (towing) that is available in Ontario, as hill launches are quite limited.
