TRAINING!
LEARN TO FLY
The reality of Flight!  That’s right, you’ve always dreamed about it and here at Glidersports, we turn those dreams into REALITY!

Flying is our passion and we are very excited to have the opportunity to share with you the awesome sport of Powered Paragliding (PPG).

A+ EQUIPMENT

Glidersports only conducts training with the highest quality equipment. Each student will be fitted for equipment as safety is our highest concern.

TOWING!

Towing is a crucial part of the Glidersports training process. Your tow flights will be conducted by a certified tow operator to ensure your first introduction to flight is safe and productive.

14 Days of Training

Our course is designed to offer a 14 days of immersive paramotor training. Our goal is that every student graduate with a PPG2 rating and the necessary skills for many years of safe flying.

SAFETY! SAFETY! SAFETY!

Student safety is of our highest concern. Upon completion of the registration process, each student will receive our proprietary training syllabus and the PPG bible to aid in the training process.

Jen Sharp and Ray Lallo will be out this weekend and are planning on holding some big way skills type camps. Rain or shine. Everyone is welcome, ALL skill levels. You can expect fun dives that will build on big-way skills. These include tips from successful base exits, approaching formations and break off and tracking safety, along with other tips essential for successfully building larger formations. If youre interested in doing bigger stuff this is going to be a great opportunity to learn from some highly experienced jumpers in the region.

Jen Sharp What time do briefings start?

Ray will start the briefing at 8:30 am. I'm speaking in Topeka at the Girls in Aviation Day for the Combat Air Museum so I won't be out until 2 or 3pm.

So weve got a bit of a bad news, good news scenario here.  First the BAD news...  For the foreseeable future, were going to have to tighten it up in the PAID packing area. As you can see in the photo, we took down the packing area outside and moved the structure over. The new structure we put up just has a gravel base at the moment which isnt very conducive to packing parachutes. BOO!!!  Were not sure what it will eventually become, but for now well probably just throw some pic nic tables out there and have a super nice covered hang out area! Were going to have to try and make the paid packing area work for Tandems, Students and Fun Jumpers which basically will mean you cant lay your stuff out to pack UNLESS...  youre actually packing it. We simply wont have the space for anyone to lay their stuff out and then head off for food at the cafe or whatever.  It will be pretty tight in there for awhile but with us going into the winter months and business slowing down I dont see this being the end of the world As long as were all respectful of each other it shouldnt be too much of an issue.  So what this means is...  NO WHINING if you lay your stuff out, leave for a little bit and come back to find your stuff piled up in a corner.  :PNow for the GOOD news...  We deconstructed the packing area because we are expanding again!  WOO HOO!!!  Starting next week we will begin new construction on the NEW Packing area.  The new packing area will encompass the entire 50x50 concrete pad. Its going to be a multi-level building with a full rigging loft and probably some new classroom areas upstairs. There is going to be several computer terminals put in for Burble manifesting, debriefing skydives and sharing skydive footage with each other. Were also entertaining the idea of throwing a pool table and some video game consoles as well. The new structure will almost double the square footage down stairs thus by increasing the size of the packing area dramatically and also will allow us to climate control the area as well. Can you say Heating and Air? Thats right people...  Air-conditioned packing next year! WOOT!  WOOT!  And also, heated packing this winter assuming we get it finished before the season really tanks!  :P  This was all part of our 5 year plan but weve been doing so well were able to manage it just after 2 years. Thank you to everyone that has supported us up to this point.In the meantime, well be in the paid packing area that is fully insulated and we have been known to provide heat in there as well when the temperature really drops. Glidersports, since its inception has been the most comfortable dropzone in Missouri during the winter months (heated) and now we plan on being the most comfortable dropzone in the summer as well. If you havent been out in awhile you ought to stop by and check us out again. Were constantly growing and ALWAYS improving!  Glidersports...  We want to be YOUR dropzone!
