Hope you had a chance to read my story on Kathy Walkley today. Walkley became a paraglider pilot when she turned 50.
She says anybody can sample the sport on tandem flight. Her instructor, Todd Henningsen, can take anybody as long as they range from 70 to 240 pounds. He even takes his son.
Here are a couple of places to give it a try.
- Todd Henningsen, 253-226-3357, Call for prices.
- Paraglide Washington, 206-328-1104, $165 for one flight, $280 for two.
- Here’s a list of 40 more instructors in Washington who are registered with the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association.
