What You'll Get

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, which is why every time a human attempts to fly, a bird attempts to drive a stick shift. Engage in one of the primary mandates of physics with today's Groupon to Torrey Pines Gliderport. Choose between the following options:

  • For $99, you get a tandem paragliding flight (a $150 value) and a high-definition video of the flight (a $50 value; a $200 total value).
  • For $599, you get an introductory P1 rating course (a $1,095 value) and a tandem paragliding flight (a $150 value; a $1,245 total value).

Torrey Pines Gliderport grants students an invigorating reprieve from the bonds of gravity via professional flight instruction on hang gliders, paragliders, and sailplanes. Tandem flights imbue aspiring gliders with the confidence required to handle an elliptical paragliding wing along a 20- to 25-minute trip boasting unforgettable views of coastal cliffs and the stunned looks from stratus clouds. Passengers can share their experiences with childhood friends or long-lost DVD players with a high-definition video that documents the ride.

The air-taming faculty boasts three instructors who have earned the Instructor of the Year award from the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association and the We Respect the Effort award from NASA. During the introductory paragliding lessons, students start with three to four days of ground handling to master the basic skills to safely complete two to three days of flight training. Apprentices receive access to the school's grounds and equipment and a paragliding textbook to study at home. Those who successfully complete the course and aren't caught passing notes to peregrine falcons during study hall will have the opportunity to earn a solo license in a P2 class.
