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.... More

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.... More

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... More

I've spent years training with Brad and Maren, and they've taken me through many levels of certification, with comfort and discipline. The quality I've always admired is their focus on safety and knowledge. The focus of their instruction has always been on teaching the pilot how to manage their own situation. Whether you're interested in a scenic flight over the... More

I have never been injured while flying and have never even had a close call. They really understand the very important aspects of the sport such as micro meteorology. You will learn so... More

I have participated in a number of high risk sports canyoneering, cave diving, mixed-gas diving and skydiving over the past several years and the reason I continue to enjoy doing these activities is directly related to the quality of training I received. In most cases I spent a great deal of time interviewing instructors until I found the one who... More

I first became familiar with Brad and Maren, of Discover Paragliding in the winter of 2013. I explored their website, finding video and still photography depicting happy instructors and students flying like birds. I immediately sent an email to ask about a tandem flight opportunity, and subsequently received a response informing me that they would notify me of the first... More
