Sportations connects amateur adrenaline jockeys to certified professional adventurers, drawing from a nationwide network of aeronauts and speed demons to introduce habitual pedestrians to the wonders of skydiving, ballooning, hang gliding, and stock-car racing. Thrill seekers can zipline across a forest canopy, hollering like Tarzan or taunting nearby birds until they agree to race. Helicopter tours ferry patrons skyward over landmarks and cityscapes, whereas paragliding adventures get up close and personal with blue skies and clouds. For most sports, Sportations accommodates groups of any size, from physics classes empirically proving gravity's existence to solo ballooning supervillains declaring dominion over all they see.
When the sun breaks through the clouds over Utah, it's an extra-exciting sight for the team at Nice Sky Adventures. That giant star blazing in the sky heats up the land below, creating thermal pockets perfect for powering adrenaline-boosting outings. Those excursions take the form of paragliding and hang-gliding flights, during which pilots and passengers ride those thermals to unparalleled views of mountainsides covered in verdant trees, snowy terrain, and one very lost pizza delivery guy.
Nice Sky Adventures starts clients off with tandem flights that pair novices with experienced pilots. From there, newly crowned flyers can relive their trip via photos and video, then continue with lessons to become solo pilots themselves.
All instructors at Randon Aviation have a minimum of four years teaching experience, and draw from this know-how to provide their students with fun and flexible lessons. Learning takes place both on the ground and in the air, behind the controls of an Alrus CH2T Trainer, a top quality aircraft that provides students with a safe learning environment.

Birdman Academy takes its name from the pseudonym of its founder, Kevin Koonce. The Birdman estimates that he has trained thousands of hang-gliding lessons, and during that time he’s taught nearly 8,000 first-timers. Currently, he nests at Point of the Mountain, a spot known for what the Academy calls, "legendary conditions." This means consistently smooth winds, which are ideal for training new hang-gliders, paragliders, and baby pterodactyls recently thawed from blocks of prehistoric ice.
Morning Star Balloons ushers cloud hunters toward their quarry, navigating the skies as transfixed guests float high above Utah's pristine mountainscape. The seasoned, FAA-certified pilots employ experience flying military jets, winning numerous hot air balloon competitions, and establishing dominance over out-of-control umbrellas as they confidently steer the colorful vessels to heights of between 500–1,500 feet. Groups of up to 12 soar above Park City’s lush landscape and during early-morning flights, with a complimentary champagne or nonalcoholic toast welcoming passengers back to solid ground. Despite its burgeoning fame through the TV shows The Amazing Race and Nitro Circus, Morning Star Balloons keeps a level head as it donates its services to local schools and charities.
