Helmed by certified instructor Benoit Bruneau, who was named 2010’s Paragliding Instructor of the Year by the U.S. Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association, Let’s Go Paragliding indoctrinates students to the high-flying sport with introductory days held at a safe training hill. Upon arriving at Mt. Brace Flight Park, guests step into a full complement of rental equipment, including a glider, harness, helmet, and a radio that plays “Danger Zone” on loop. Under Bruneau’s expert tutelage, students begin their lesson by learning how to inflate a glider and control it. Over the course of the day, the duo progresses higher and higher on the training hill at the student’s desired comfortable pace. Guests should come dressed in hiking boots, sunglasses, light gloves, long pants, and a long-sleeved shirt with a bottle of water in tow to simulate rainstorms for an added challenge.
