My friend Evan and I just visited Inland Paraflite. Normally, I wouldn't write a review but truly feel that the owner Phil deserves some credit. Rather than just fly us in the air, he was very informative and went out of his way to make us comfortable. He even gave us a certificate once we landed. Great adventure for anyone. We are definitely coming back! Not scary, just relaxing and fun.

Outstanding! I did the 30 minute flight and everything about it was great. Phil seems like a first-rate human being and his flying machine is amazing. I'd give the whole experience a 10 out of 10.

Phil is a nice guy and very knowledgeable. Safety is a priority. After I arrived, the wind had started picking up and changing directions. We had to cancel. Luckily, the next time I showed up, the weather was agreeable. The flight was a lot of fun! I suggest doing the 30min flight as I don't think 15minutes is enough. Glad I did the longer flight.

About 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 100 horsepower Powrachute Airwolf, which reaches speeds of up to 32 miles per hour—the same speed at which the sound of soft rock travels
