A paraglider is a free-flying, foot- launched aircraft fitted with a harness suspended below a fabric wing used primarily to satisfy man’s latent desire to fly.
Take-offs are done on the slopes of HALEAKALĀ , with descents ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 feet. If you’re a beginner, try a TANDEM FLIGHT. Considered the best way to learn, tandem paragliding pairs a certified instructor and a student pilot in the same glider. Reservations are required, so call ahead to schedule your paragliding venture.
