A Federal Aviation Administration–certified instructor flies an open-air paraplane, also known as a motor-powered parachute, into the sky and hands over the controls to passengers once they reach cruising altitude. Flights depart at sunrise as students learn to steer, climb, and descend at speeds of 26–32 miles per hour before the instructor reclaims the controls for a safe landing.

Inland Paraflite

In 1992, Phil Dietro's younger brother Stu became enamored with his friend's paraplane, prompting him to learn how to pilot the motor-powered parachute. In an old fashion bout of sibling rivalry, Phil too wanted to master the strange flying contraption, traveling with Stu to Santa Ynez Airport for his first flight. As gusts of wind rearranged his hair, and impressed birds beckoned him over for high-fives, Phil became hooked, later seeking further training from the paraplane's inventor, Steve Snyder.

A year after his first flight, Phil's newfound hobby inspired him to establish Inland Paraflite, where he currently schools fledgling aviators in an airborne classroom high above the Apple Valley desert. His exhilarating flight courses instill cloud-curious students with the knowledge to man a dual-controlled Powrachute Pegasus, which reaches speeds of up to 32 miles per hour—the same speed at which the sound of soft rock travels.

Flying is dependent on wind conditions and may change on the morning you are scheduled It is worth the drive to arrive early in the morning and receive good orientation instructions from the instructor
