Steve & Scott Amy started flying paragliders around the San Francisco Bay Area, California in 1990. They took their first lesson with Jeff Greenbaum at Airtime Sports in San Francisco. While finishing up a Bachelor’s Degree in Film Production, Scott founded the Proflyght Paragliding School in 1992. He became rated in both Paragliders and Hang Gliders. In 1994 Scott was the US National Paragliding Champion. Together they started the first Paragliding School in the Hawaiian Islands, on the Isle of Maui. They called this school Proflyght Hawaii. There they offered full certification course, tandem lessons and sold all necessary equipment. Steve made the first paragliding tandem flight off Haleakala Crater in 1993 on a Pro Design Challenger. Here you can glide from nearly 10,000′ to sea level, over 14 miles away. Proflyght Hawaii, under new ownership, is still operating out of Kula, Maui.
In 1996 they got involved in commercial piloting of airplanes. Both Steve and Scott hold commercial pilots licenses and instructor’s ratings for both single and multi engine airplane. Scott is an instructor in helicopter and rated in floatplane and ski planes. If you want to become a pilot or have questions about aviation, give us a call. We love to share our passion of flight. Scott presently will offer to give lessons in your own aircraft.
The Present-Scott founded Skydance Paragliding in 2003 when he moved to Anchorage from Maui, Hawaii. Scott has worked primarily as a Commercial Pilot, but continues to enjoy teach paragliding. In 2015, Scott started Skydance Aviation with the purchase of a C185 on amphibious floats. See his website at www.skydanceaviation.com
Future– Although we love Hawaii, Alaska is our home now. Not only do we like to fly in the summer, but actually do a lot in the winter too. We use the mini-wings/ speedwings to speedride on skis down the massive slopes. We can also use the smaller canopies to sail on skis and ice skates on the lakes; adding more fun things to do outside. We continue to organize guided paragliding trips back to our own past sites, like Maui, Big Island of Hawaii, California, Arizona. Scott has done paragliding tours to Mexico, Columbia, Costa Rica, and France.
Over the past 28 yrs Steve and Scott have introduced paragliding to over 9000 people. Hundreds have been brought safely into this amazing and magical sport. We hope to continue to promote our favorite sport through safe and responsible instruction.
