We provide lessons & courses in Queenstown, from intro day courses right through to full pilot licence courses and more. We operate out of the Flight Park landing zone at the bottom of Coronet Peak ski field in Queenstown.

Paragliding is easy to learn - we are running courses continually, from start of Nov to end of March.  So you can start at anytime.  On the first day you will have the experience of flying solo, starting with small glides and quickly building up to high flights.

Whether you just want to experience paragliding once or would like to learn how to fly,  Extreme Air Paragliding offer certified instructional courses with an enthusiastic and a professional approach to paragliding.

Try our days course, or complete a full 10 day course and receive your full PG2 certificate.

The course will commence with your first days on flat ground or on small training hills, where you will learn basic techniques used to control the paraglider.We will cover important thoery associated with flying a paraglider and gain a basic understanding of the weather.

Your training will progress from repetition on the training hills, to ground skimming solo glides, followed by higher flights under the close supervision of your instructor with the use of UHF radios.Further flights are repeated until the student is fully confident and comfortable with all necessary aspects in flying a paraglider

Please understand that each student will learn at their own individual pace and paragliding is a weather dependent sport, so completion times of your course may vary.
