Since my last glowing report the owners of Discover Paragliding have received "Instructors of the Year" for 2015. My most current visit was a training session at Fort Stevens State Park. IMHO they are as serious about quality training and safety as ever. You will not be disappointed.

I'm not kidding when I say that paragliding was one of the happiest experiences of my life. I enjoyed it so much that I opted to go back after the first time at sunset when they offered, and I am so glad I did. Not only was the Oregon Coast at sunset absolutely stunning, but I also saw Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Rainier, elk, and whales while I was up. While you are very high up (around 3,000' at the highest), it felt very calm and relaxing! Brad and Maren are a huge reason why the experience was so enjoyable. They are friendly and clearly love what they do, not only just doing tandem flights but educating their students about what they are doing and why. This is an absolute must if you are visiting Portland or the coast! Be sure to schedule in advance just in case and then check in with Brad and Maren to see if everything is okay weather wise (even if it's sunny since winds could be an issue). And definitely bring a GoPro with a head strap to record the experience!

Brad and Maren are great instructors who taught me to paraglide over ten years ago. Since then I have traveled the country flying and have always used and appreciated the thoroughness and safety of the flying education they delivered. I also took up paramotoring and kitesuring and land sports and their venue is perfectly suited for teaching these related disciplines. I try to go fly with Brad and Maren whenever I get the chance and hold them in the highest regard as instructors and pilots. I highly recommend them. -Joe

I started training with Brad and Maren in 2012, and their instruction has been nothing less than excellent. Paragliding is inherently a high-risk sport, but Discover Paragliding takes you through your training building the correct attitude and skills to minimize the risk, and maximize the enjoyment. Brad and Maren have trained many, many students over two decades and have honed their training methods to help every student build their skills, no matter how difficult the skill. Sunset Beach, their primary training and tandem area , was chosen for the smooth and predictable winds (which help you fly !) and for miles and miles of safe landing zones on the beach - making a very forgiving environment for new students. Since I am learning to fly solo, I have not been on a tandem ride- but I have confidently sent my family members on a tandem ride - and they loved it ! From the spectacular views of Seaside, Astoria, Tillamook and Cape Lookout, to the high - G maneuvers, they loved every minute of it. Whether you are looking to be a passenger on a scenic and thrilling ride, or Whether you are looking to learn to fly solo, I strongly recommend Discover Paragliding
