Paragliding lessons in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Paragliding here is fantastic.   We have great training sites and flying sites where you can soar a paraglider for hours at a time.  With modern paragliding equipment designs, the gear weighs between 20 and 40 lbs.   Flight records are close to 400 miles (2022) with no motor with a 170 mile flight via paraglider in the Bay Area (from Mount Diablo).   In addition, you can travel with a paraglider and fly almost anywhere in the world.

Airtime Paragliding and Jeff Greenbaum have been teaching paragliding since 1988 and instruction is done at several locations in the Bay Area, near San Francisco.   What sets Airtime of San Francisco, Paragliding School apart is a smaller class size, and the commitment to each and every student to not only meet the basic standards but more, building understanding, solid skills and attitude.

Over the years, Airtime of San Francisco Paragliding has crated a free Article collection that features detailed discussions of techniques, study guides for exams, quizzes and videos.   Another way to learn technical information is our free GROUND SCHOOL program.   Anyone can come to one of these sessions, they are done via the zoom app, so you can do these from the comfort of your home..   Click on the link for full information.

Many instructors I have seen over the years teach fear, Jeff teaches respect.

When I would get together with my friends, we would compare notes and I always felt that I was getting the better deal. I definitely had more one on one time with my instructor (Jeff) than my friends did with theirs. I learned lots of skills and most importantly learned to be safe. I now have over 100 hours of airtime and 300 launches!

Hands down the method of instruction was in-depth, one on one, professional and completely by the book. Certainly one of the pioneers in the sport, Jeff has developed and extensive on-line wealth of articles and tutorial videos that his students have access to. This information was invaluable (and still is) through my certification and continued learning process.

I learned paragliding with Jeff of Airtime of San Francisco four years ago, best decision ever. Airtime of San Francisco has a well structured course, the pace is kept constantly within the student acquired skill set, and Jeff judgment is always spot on.
