If you have never flown a paraglider before, a tandem flight with an experienced instructor is a fantastic way to get your feet off the ground and experience what it is like to see the world from above.

What To Expect

We will shuttle you up to the launch site in our vehicle. You will be fitted with a harness and helmet, and your instructor will prepare the gear for flight. You will then be clipped in with the pilot and launching will require a few confident running steps down the hill. Once in the air you can sit back and enjoy unmatched views of the beauty that surrounds Leavenworth. Our shuttle vehicle will meet us in the landing zone and return you to reality.

Guests are advised to wear sturdy shoes or boots, long pants and a jacket because we will be exposed to wind and cooler temperatures. wearing sunglasses is also recommended. You will be provided a helmet.

Please schedule in advance to assure pilot availability.

   This is what a Launch looks like.

This was my first time paragliding, and I did a tandem flight with Armond. My experience was incredible from start to finish. Armond and Lori are an incredible team! They're organized, knowledgeable, skilled, and put off relaxed, chill vibes that bring bring so much ease to first timers. They drive you up the mountain to the launch site, give a tutorial on the take-off, wind direction, the landing, and do a thorough safety check of the wing, harness and gear. They give careful attention to the air conditions before launching.

My flight was surreal: catching thermals, taking in the mountain and valley views, and learning so much about the sport. Experience of a lifetime! I can tell Lori and Armond really love what they do. I highly recommend taking a flight with this company!

I had no idea how cool paragliding is. My first flight with Leavenworth Paragliding blew my mind! It's a well known fact that I smile quite a bit. You would think my cheek muscles would be able to endure pure joy for the duration of a flight, but I was wrong. My cheeks were sore for the next few days after flying with Leavenworth Paragliding. I'm COMPLETELY hooked! Words can't hardly describe the breathtaking sites only before seen by eagles. Being above the earth weightless and free is something EVERYONE should experience. Armond is an absolute pro and every safety precaution is taken. My cheeks down south were comfy as could be and worry free. So what are you waiting  for?! Grab a jacket and a GoPro, sign up for a flight and experience true freedom!

Our day flying with Leavenworth Paragliding was one of the best experiences of the year. I was immediately put at ease with the calm, experienced pilots who took us out and showed us an entirely new world we had never seen before. We highly recommend them and would do it again in a heartbeat!
