To FlyBC Paragliding?s founder, Jim Reich, paragliding represents freedom. Not only does it free riders from the restrictions of gravity, it liberates them from the typical inconveniences of flight, such as expensive airplane fuel and restrictive air traffic regulations. Through Reich?s school, he now teaches newbies the sport, as well as other aerial arts such as hang gliding, paramotoring, and flapping your arms until you sort of levitate.
Reich and his instructors, all trained and certified by the Hanggliding and Paragliding Association of Canada, base their training and recreational flights out of a 25-acre training facility. Dubbed Eagle Ranch, the facility features an on-site hill and is nestled between two rivers. Beyond training, the school can outfit students in gear from brands such as Ozone, SkyCountry, and Gin, or lead them on paragliding trips that journey to scenic locales in Mexico.
Big Air Soaring provides customers with the thrilling experience of flight through instructional tandem paragliding across the Pacific Northwest. Experienced, USHPA-certified pilots welcome newcomers and impassioned enthusiasts alike. While gently gliding back down to solid ground, paragliders have the opportunity to see sights such as Tiger Mountain, Puget Sound, and the Olympic Mountains from a vantage point normally reserved for birds and migratory flocks of helium balloons.
