Team Fly Halo Powered Paragliding Training Reviewed By Jay H

Over the past 8 days I had the opportunity to receive training from the instructors at Team FlyHalo just outside of Galveston Texas. Being new to the sport, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. From the onset, Shane Denherder put the students at ease and gave a great intro into kiting and the proper techniques of handling the wing.

You could tell that there was a genuine interest from the instructors to ensure that each student was safe and had a good understanding of the syllabus and what was expected for the next week. Kiting and form was instructed during the mornings and evenings when the wind was preferable. Ground school was held indoors during the heat of the day.

All the basis were covered from airspace, FAA regs, gear, handling the wing, motor maintenance, and proper set up of rigging. These guys were extremely thorough! When the time came to solo, we had a genuine comfort level from the preparedness we had received. They wanted to make sure that each of us had the knowledge and tools to make a successful and enjoyable solo flight.

For anyone considering getting into power paragliding, instruction and training is a must and the group at Team FlyHalo are the best in the field.  Training with them is a great confidence builder and it prepares you far beyond what you could do on your own.  Another added benefit is being able to use them as resources, bounce ideas, and ask questions even after the training is over and you’ve gone home- they are very responsive. I highly recommend this group of instructors and I will continue to use them for future training.  They get five stars in my book.

Stay safe,
Jay Howard

New Dates For Powered Paragliding Training – Galveston Texas

We hadn’t planned on doing another powered paragliding training course for the remainder of the year but with the interest we had over the last class, we decided to open up the gates once again for a final class in 2013.      The dates are October 19th-27th.

We are limiting this class to 3 students, on a first come, first serve basis.      The last day to sign up will be Friday, October 4th so we can make proper arrangements.

This class, like any other offered from Team Fly Halo runs @ $2,500 and includes lodging and gear usage for the first class as well as a lifetime membership to Team Fly Halo’s training course.

Our lifetime membership lets any pilot that trained with us come back free of charge to learn new skills or touch up on existing ones.

Thanks for choosing to work with Team Fly Halo!

New Wing, Even Better Performance – The Dudek Hadron

We’ve bounced around from a few different paraglider brands since opening up Team Fly Halo in 2012. We believe in partnering up with the best brands on the market and as you can see from our latest video, Jeff is loving his new Dudek Hadron.

Shane actually talked Jeff into switching from his old wing to the new Dudek and Jeff couldn’t be happier. It handles better, efficiency is off the charts, launches easy and is a total blast to fly.  Enough about that, just watch the video and see for yourself!   It doesn’t hurt that it looks great too.

Check out that custom Team Fly Halo logo! Pretty awesome right?
