Last Chance Summer Dance – August 28th to September 6th in Morro Bay, CA

The schedule is up, and it’s your last chance to grab a Summer training session with Team Fly Halo for 2015!

August 28th we’ll kick off with another ten-day session of drilling in the fundamentals, attitude, and knowledge that’ll make you successful for a lifetime of powered paragliding.  We have dozens and dozens of success stories over the past three years of students who left our class with an above-average skill set and have been killing it ever since.  What’s our secret?  We know that aviation is a lifetime of learning, and we’re humble enough to stay open-minded about our approach.

Training isn’t something you do once and “graduate” from for life.  And we apply that to our own course by seeking out the best training and latest techniques for ourselves – so that we can apply our well-rounded skill set to our school.  What you get is the best techniques and practices learned from our background in paramotoring, free flying, cross country, aerobatics, speed flying, and even general aviation knowledge.

But it doesn’t stop with your initial training.  All Team members in good standing have the option to return to scheduled classes to get current, learn new skills, or just come out and meet new flying friends.  We offer tandem and instructor training for our veterans, while giving them an opportunity to work with new Team members to get practical experience teaching.  We arrange advanced maneuvers and emergency training through our partners for intermediate pilots too.  We also offer advanced PPG mountain / high altitude / cross country courses for our students.  As well as offering free-flight transition courses in Utah and will be offering guided Paragliding tours in Mexico beginning Winter of 2016!

If you’re not able to make this course – don’t sweat it!  We’re going to be a bit preoccupied with the Icarus Trophy 2015 through the Fall, but will pick up our training schedule with sessions in late November and late January.

The “Team” in Team Fly Halo refers to the way we conduct our biz. When you join Team Fy Halo, you’re part of a community that perpetuates better, safer flying and a more enjoyable experience.  We want you to grow with us, and it starts with making sure everyone is a good fit for our team – driven, intelligent, and understands the value in above-average instruction and equipment.

If that sounds like you, drop us a note at [email protected] or call us at 855-FLY-HALO today and say hello!

Last Call – July Paramotor Training with Team Fly Halo

In a strange turn of events, we’ve thrown together an impromptu class for a small group of folks who needed specific dates – July 13th -22nd.  We’ve taken inventory, and think we can accommodate one or two extra students.  So if the summer of 2015 is the summer for you to learn paramotoring, and if you are one of those strange people who can take ten days off on a week’s notice, and if you think you would fit into our team; shoot us an email or give us a call right away!

The Fly Halo experience is a different one altogether.  We come together for these clinics spending hours and hours practicing day after day for a reason – you learn quick, and you learn thoroughly.  Other schools might be a better pace for some, working on your skills and ratings on weekends until you’ve accumulated enough time to be on your own.  But with Team Fly Halo you come together in a group setting and fully immerse yourself in paramotoring for ten days, which we’ve found to be the best way to get next-level skills and keep them.

FraserOur ground school covers looking into your specific flying area and educating you on all the possible nuances, and gives you a comprehensive approach to starting out your flying career.  Our students follow-up by staying in touch after initial training, working on their advanced ratings, and getting mentorship through constant communication with their instructors and other team members in their area.  Fly Halo students have an excellent success rate, as we feel they are more well-rounded by the time they become fully-fledged pilots.

If all that makes sense to you, have a look at the highlight reel of our “antics” in the last class – this experience is unforgettable and an absolute blast.  If you can’t make this class – don’t feel bad, it would be weird if you could on such short notice.  Get in touch with us to find out when the next class will be, tell us a bit about yourself, and start planning or an unforgettable experience followed by a life-changing new sport!

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

Powered Paragliding Instructor and Tandem Rating Clinic – Galveston Texas

Team Fly Halo is teaming up with Parafreedom Air Sports on the Gulf Coast in September to conduct a beginner PPG/PG clinic from the 14th through the 22nd.

For the first time, we’re excited to be offering both Instructor and Tandem ratings through the USPPA for qualified Advanced pilots, as well as a skills clinic for those pilots wishing to improve their own flying or earn initial/advanced ratings.  Those pilots interested would be attending a clinic that runs concurrently with our novice pilot’s clinic, having a chance to work with live students and advanced instructors Bud Wruck and Shane Denherder.

Those pilots interested in improving their skills, earning additional ratings, or earning Instructor/Tandem ratings in a controlled training environment would be invited to attend Sept 17 – 21st.  No matter what your experience level, we are sure to be able to help you be safer, have more fun, and look much cooler in all things related to paramotor!  Contact Team Fly Halo for more information or to reserve your spot today!

Please note that not every applicant will be qualified for Tandem/Instructor ratings and therefore no rating is guaranteed.  Please contact Shane at Team Fly Halo to discuss your knowledge, skills, and experience.  We will be sure to thoroughly screen all prospective instructor/tandem pilots to ensure a reasonable expectation of success.  At a very minimum, you must have two years flying PPG and USPPA PPG3 or USHPA P-4 level skills.  Instructor / Tandem trainees can expect a minimum of one day screening/tuning up before beginning to work with students or fly tandem as pilot in command.
