Welcome to Skydance Paragliding School. If you ever wondered what it feels like to float silently around the great blue sky you’ve come to the right place. We can help you experience paragliding, teach you how to do it yourself and provide you with all the equipment. The Corona virus has slowed us down a little but we have already taught several students how to paragliding this year. We are doing what we can to prevent the spread of this virus by taking the precautions seriously.

See notice below.

If you are new to paragliding and would like to experience the thrill of a life time, please view our Training page. If you are a visiting paragliding or hang gliding pilot please find site information, weather and other pilot resources. If you would like site orientation or daily guiding, please contact us. We sell all the latest equipment and often have used gear for sale too. Please visit out Equipment page. We specialize in hike and fly, light weight paragliding and speed flying kits. Even though we have a few drive-up sites in Alaska, there are many more wonderful launches above timberline!

Covid-19 Notice- In response to the virus and the Alaska governor’s mandates, we are limiting our training to outside venues only-no indoor classroom work. We are doing what we can to not ride together and should the need arise we are asking everyone to wear a mask and verify that they have been healthy and not around others that might have been infected within the last 14 days. We are doing our best to maintain a physical distance of 6′ or where face coverings if we need to be closer. We feel it is important that we continue to be vigilant for some time to come. We thank you for your cooperation during these times.


No prior experience is necessary. You have the option to take a introductory tandem lesson with a highly experienced Tandem USHGA Certified Instructor or start working with the paraglider on the ground, gradually developing your skills before taking flight. Most get their feet off the ground on the first day.
