Location. Location. Location.

With over 11 acres of mowed, grassy fields and vast quiet airspace, our training facility in Franklin Indiana is a perfect place to comfortable and safely learn to fly Powered Paragliders.
As your skills develop and you begin to fly further away from the field, you’ll find endless places to explore and exciting lines to fly.
Our weather is fairly predictable. Aside from the occasional storm and windy day, our morning and evening flying sessions in the glassy, fresh country air will make each flight memorable.
