Is Paragliding prohibitively expensive? Nah.
A paraglider is the cheapest, simplest aircraft in the world. Prices for a complete set of gear range from $3,500-$6,000, and training for a basic license (USHPA’s P2, which qualifies a student to fly on their own, without a tandem pilot) costs around $2,500-$3,000
Once you’ve got the gear and the training, paragliding is essentially free. There are no required additional costs to continue in the sport: no flights to skydiving altitude, no fuel, no storage costs for the equipment (as it fits in a closet). While you may find yourself traveling to explore lots of far-flung sites, paragliding is one of the most cost-effective sports on the planet — far more so than its awesomeness would suggest.Sign us for lessons here.
