CURRENT NEWS AS OF 4/25/22
Moving into the 2022 Summer Season having limited staff in the instruction department we are only able to entertain a few folks for their P2 ratings locally. We do have lower 48 schools we work with to help train and get you all set up. Working with us on this gives us the chance to prepare you and then returning with a P2 Solo Rating we can introduce you to the local sites educating you on how to decide when and where to fly. In addition we will connect you to the local club and ideally find you one or two mentors aside from us so you are excellerated into the sport and local flying community at the same time getting advanced training toward your P3 Pilot Rating.
From June 25th to Sept 15th
Tandem flights unfortunately are limited this Summer due to lack of qualified help and site access. After June 25th Due to a very part time schedule for paragliding operations we can put you down on a day that works for your schedule and check the weather and availa. If

LEARN HOW TO FLY LIKE A BIRD
Welcome to Skydance Paragliding School. If you ever wondered what it feels like to float silently through the great blue sky, you’ve come to the right place. We have been safely teaching people how to paraglide since the early 90’s. With us, you can experience paragliding without any prior experience. Weather you just want to give it a try or become a certified pilot, we are here to make your flying dreams a reality. You can start by flying TANDEM with an experienced United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (USHPA) Tandem Instructor or start SOLO PILOT Training, learning how to launch, land and control the paraglider on your own with one of our experienced USHPA Certified Instructors.
ALREADY A PILOT VISITING ALASKA?
If you are a pilot visiting from outside the Anchorage area or the state and looking for professional site orientations or more, we can help you make the most of your adventure. Please see our Paratreking services for a guided experience of a lifetime! Also have some intermediate to advance gear for rent.
We sell all the latest equipment and often have safe Used gear available too. Since Alaska offers an infinite number of places to hike and fly from, we specialize in lightweight paragliding gear and speedflying / speedriding kits.

CORONA VIRUS RESPONSE
We have put serious thought and consideration into SOP’s to keep customers and staff protected. Luckily we operate outdoors in wide open spaces. We at Skydance have all be vaccinated. There is no better way to social distance than flying like a bird far away from the world below. We ask that every student plans to bring their own gloves, helmet (if they have) and general PPE. Extra mask are on hand if needed. We are trying not to share rides in vehicles but if we must, we all will be wearing mask. Please let us know ahead of time if you have been exposed or had any symptoms. Now let’s go fly!
