Pennsylvania Paragliding utilizes three  different training hills which allows us to    train paragliding pilots from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland. Our certified instructors pick the appropriate hill to maximize the wind directions for the day to fly safely on your very first day.

Additional flights at the end of the lesson might be available for $25 each.

Equipment Purchase


For P1 and P2 students, part of the cost of training is met by the student's purchase of equipment from us.


It is your instructor's job to help you select your first glider.  Different paragliders have different characteristics and require different skill levels.  The guidance of a trusted instructor will ensure that you choose a glider that will give you many hours of safe and fun flight.  We take pride in being the major importer for most major paragliding manufacturers on the market, and even for many of the minor ones as well! We always work hard in getting our students the best deal on the market, and we always spend some time reviewing appropriate glider size, brand, performance, cost, safety, and more with every one of our students. That way, the student finds the wing that is perfect for them in all aspects at their current level.


There is a surcharge for students who already have their gear.  This equipment will have to be inspected and approved by Pennsylvania Paragliding instructors to ensure safety.
