First-time paragliders only need 30 minutes of ground school before taking a running jump from a bunny hill and hitching a ride on the wind. Over roughly two hours, each participant will take at least two flights, which might reach heights of 30 feet or dip low to just a few feet off the ground. High-definition video and photographs are included in the price.
Paragliding locations are dependent on wind factors and vary day-by-day. Thrill-seekers are notified the night before their class via email. Each hill is located no more than a 30 minute drive from downtown. Click here for more information.
The value of this deal is based on regular ticket prices and doesn’t reflect student, senior, or military discounts.
With nothing but their legs, a launch pad, and a little wind, paragliders achieve mankind's ancient dream of flight without the help of motors or fancypants pilots. A dedicated revolutionary against the tyranny of gravity, paragliding instructor Jon Potter invites one and all to join him atop the hills of Pittsburgh for a flying lesson that can be tailored for students of any experience level. Potter gladly hurls himself from virtually any flyable hill in and around the city. Beginners start by taking wing from bunny hills, and more advanced gliders tackle the more challenging courses.

“Jon is a great teacher. He gives you the basics quickly and lets you put what you've learned in action. This was a great intro class to build the foundations of paragliding. Keep your expectations realistic. Being that this is an intro course you wont be sailing high above the city, but you will have fun and learn the basics of a wing while getting some air time. Awesome experience! I would highly recommend this groupon to anyone”

“This experience was awesome! It takes a bit of strength to get under canopy, but once youre in the air its worth it! I recommend wearing comfortable pants and a long sleeve shirt to protect against rope burns and scratched up knees from any wipeouts.”
