One Day Lesson - $249

Our one day introductory lesson is a 4 to 6 hour training day on the sand dunes of Monterey Bay. Monterey Sky Sports provides all student paragliding equipment for lessons. This lesson gives you a brief glimpse into what it feels like to be a paraglider pilot and gets you out on the beach and in the elements.

You day starts out with a brief meteorology lesson as we walk to the launch site together with the gear, you will learn how and why Monterey has such smooth consistent air to fly in the spring, summer, and fall months. Next we move on to a equipment introduction and brief demonstration.  Using ground handling (kiting) to familiarize you with the aerodynamics and flight characteristics of the paraglider builds your confidence and understanding of how the glider flies. After some time practicing the launch sequence we will move on to some short flights to the beach. By launching, having a short flight, and safely landing you will get the feel for flight and then we slowly start adding skills and furthering your abilities over time.  

If after a few days of flying you decide to continue with Novice Paragliding Training, we apply all of your day class fees toward the novice package.

Monterey summers are quite cool so bring layers! We recommend a light weight down jacket, and long sleeve shirt. Comfortable shoes or boots are best, remember we are walking around on the sand so high tops come in handy for helping keep piles of sand out of your shoes. Bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, hydration, and a snack!
