Resources

We do our best to keep a repository of paraglider and aviation related resources up to date for students and anyone curious to learn more. Let us know if you would like to see something included and we will make it happened! 

Online Training Resources

We have partnered with the SkyGear Hub brand and require all of our students to complete the online USHPA P2 Ground School course on GliderTraining.org. Head over to the site and create an account to get started! The online course library is growing and it sounds like lots of great features are in the works for students and instructors!

Aviation Resources

Albion Bowers is the recently retired Chief Scientist for NASA’s Neil Armstrong Flight Research Center. His work on the Prandtl Wing project and the Bell Span Load Theory has uncovered the mystery of the source of adverse yaw and opened the door to a significant shift in our understanding of ultra-efficient aircraft design and construction. For more on his work, head over to his website and feel free to watch the video below!
