Live your dreams – life is no dress rehearsal and favours the bold
Our site has information for Paragliding pilots and Adventure/Enduro motorcycling enthusiasts and on this home page we keep you updated on our events on weekends for a few months in advance at the bottom of this home page.We provide quality tours, training and equipment so you get value for what you pay for.
As a paragliding ATO we have recently expanded our offerings to powered paragliding, Powered Paratrike and Powered Parachute training in our partnership with Epic Aviation. Both schools can now offer conversion training between powered and non powered or vice versa, and we have a wider range of equipment with dedicated classrooms and workshop. Our centre of excellence is operating at Grasslands Sports Club near centurion on a dedicated powered paragliding airfield.
Great safe place to come and train and fly. Shortly our winching systems will be in place to assist pilots to train and hone some of their skills especially landing.
