Red Tail Paragliding is the Front Range’s dedicated paragliding school and outfitter. It provides professional paragliding instruction and bucket list flying experiences at the foothills of the Rockies in Boulder.
They build on a tradition of free flight in Colorado going back to 1989 with its second-generation instructor, Misha Banks. He grew up in Boulder and aspires to show off his hometown from a whole new perspective. Whether you want to fly for the day or a lifetime, you’re guaranteed a memory that you’ll never forget.
Paraglide Lessons & Tandem Flights
Red Tail Paragliding offers lessons suitable to every skill level. All it takes is an intro course to get your first flight. If you want to continue learning and become a certified pilot, Red Tail offers USHPA-certified pilot training programs in Boulder and Grand Junction.

You’ll be shocked how quickly you progress through the initial training and how mellow your first flight of the beginner-friendly training hill is. Book a weekend course and discover the freedom of flight!
