See "Suzie Hang Gliding" on Youtube for what you can expect. Other paragliders were incredibly high in the sky, we barely got above the benches. He hates groupon, only using it to buy a new paraglider, working as little as possible for the coustomers

From Our Editors

Birdman Academy takes its name from the pseudonym of its founder, Kevin Koonce. The Birdman estimates that he has trained thousands of hang-gliding lessons, and during that time he’s taught nearly 8,000 first-timers. Currently, he nests at the height of the Mountain, a spot known for what the Academy calls, "legendary conditions." This means consistently smooth winds, which are ideal for training new hang-gliders, paragliders, and baby pterodactyls recently thawed from blocks of prehistoric ice. Instructors that have traveled and flown around the world guide patrons through their experiences.
