OK…..well, maybe we’re not really marauding aerial pirates, wantonly pillaging the open skies. We are known to occasionally exercise random acts of kindness as well. Save a maiden in airborne distress, slay a dragon or two, give up a window seat for an old lady.....ya know, stuff like that. Yeeeeeeeh, that’s it, we're Paladins of the Sky.....Gliding Knights of the Pneumatic Realm.


Ok, Ok, still a bit delusional, eh? It’s all really just an archaic, sentimental and sappy romantic idea anyway. In reality, we’re just a bunch of degenerate, dirt-bag paraglider pilots. A sullied collection of miscreants who live in vans "down by the river" and run off mountains attached to cafĂ© awnings.....

However, despite of our twisted and silly notions, we do convince complete strangers to sit in our laps while hangin' thousands of feet in the air. Take a look below, we even have photographic proof!

First "ABLE Pilot" Training Camp scheduled for August 8-12, 2011 in Sun Valley.

ABLE Pilot's mission is to help people with disabilities (spinal cord injuries, amputations, and neuromuscular disease) to safely experience the freedom, joys and sense of accomplishment of free flight that paragliding offers.

The ABLE Pilot™ program is a research and instructional program designed to establish and support the development and testing of formal paragliding, hang gliding and ultralight instructional protocol and methods for student pilots with various physical disabilities.

Spring approaches…

Longer days and March is finally here. March can be the best flying month of the ski season as thermal activity finally starts in earnest. Come see us for a flight! We are operational every day until the end of the ski season in mid-April. Flights will resume again most likely in early June when we can then again access the top of the mountain. Between that time we should be attending the Ghana Paragliding Festival, etc.

Summer `09 paragliding season is underway...

Finally, after weeks of rain we are up and flying from Bald Mountain. The copious amount of moisture has brought a level of green to this area we haven't seen in over 10 years. Very pretty, and the mountain flowers will be popping out any day now. Looks like a great flying season ahead!

The 2007-2008 Winter season has arrived...

As of a few days ago, Bald Mountain/Sun Valley Resort access is open to the top which means the flying season has started. We are hoping for a good snowbase combined with sunny days and favorable winds. Gliders should be dotting the skies over Sun Valley until the winter ski season comes to a close in mid-April.

Summer has arrived...

After a long winter, we're happy to see the summer thermal season finally arrive. The flying in June so far has been wonderful and we are looking forward to another great summer of flying.....
