Paragliding Links

I would love to see more people become paraglider pilots in Boise, and well, anywhere for that matter. Feel free to pass this message on to everyone and anyone that you think might be at all interested or even curious about free flight.

While paragliding is growing and even considered a family activity in Europe, the pilot population in the United States is actually shrinking. The more pilots in the air, the more fun for all of us.

The first part of a two part US Paragliding National Competition begins this April 27th in Dunlap California.

Here are some links where you can learn more:

Official web-site for the event

Watch live tracking of the event, watch pilot progress in real time over the internet starting April 27!

My personal blog where I will try to post blog entries and my personal track log from my gps of each flight which you can view on Google Earth.

Tim O'Neill, an active pilot and blogger involved in the competition scene.

USHPA - the united state hang gliding and paragliding association, the national governing body for non-motorized foot launched free flight

The user group for Idaho paragliding pilots

Take a tandem flight in Idaho, just ask my dad if it is any fun.

any questions?
