Located at the popular Whale Harbor Marina next to their 3 great restaurants, and numerous other charter & watersports businesses. We operate daily, weather permitting. Reservations are recommended, but we are happy to accommodate you if you just walk right up. The string of islands known as the Florida Keys is surrounded by the sparkling turquoise waters of the Florida Bay and the Straits of Florida, lush tropical foliage, meandering waterways among the mangroves, and a patchwork quilt of spectacular homes and canals make for unforgettable scenery here.
Owner and Tandem Instructor Scot Trueblood, pictured here, has been flying hang gliders for over 31 years, and flying tandem over water since 2004.
He has been organizer and/or meet director of several prestigious hang gliding competitions such as the U.S. National Speedgliding Championships, 2001 & 2002, the Red Bull Wings Over Aspen Speedrun, 2000 & 2001, and the Jackson Hole Aeroextreme 2000 & 2002. He has won or placed in a number of hang gliding competitions since 1981, and has flown over 1000 hours in dozens of different glider types, at sites from coast to coast in the United States. His articles and photographs have appeared in the pages of Hang Gliding Magazine on a number of occasions. He has all Special Skills endorsements on his rating card, and is a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer as well. His love of the sea and sky are evidenced by his passion for sharing them with others.
For those who wish to continue their personal quest into the wild blue yonder, Paradise Hang Gliding, Inc. offers a comprehensive package of USHPA Certified Instruction & Flight Training.
We are proud to be the only operation in Florida offering year-round tandem instruction over the safety net of soft saltwater.
With Paradise Hang Gliding, Inc., the fun is much more than flying. You also get a great day of boating and wildlife spotting in the waters of Estero Bay and the sparkling Gulf of Mexico.
Let’s Go Flying!
Beginning with your introductory Adventure Flight, when you get the itch to take hang gliding lessons, we have the tools and know how to provide continuing education. Ground school and home study begin the knowledge development segment, then subsequent tandem flights will be taken with the student in the pilots harness, and the instructor in the second harness.
All equipment, training materials, protective gear, and on-site refreshments are included. Our equipment is all new and state of the art. Each student is fitted with a helmet, a custom harness, kneepads, and eye protection. Also included, at no extra charge, is a 30 Day Membership into the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association.
