Paragliding lessons in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Paragliding is the greatest form of aviation.   With modern designs, you have gear that weighs between 20 and 40 lbs. for everything.   Flight records are close to 400 miles (2022) with no motor.   You can travel with a wing and fly almost anywhere in the world.

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

When learning to paraglide Jeff kept me safe and taught me to how to be a safe flyer. I learned at my own pace. He gave highly actionable advice that consistently improved my abilities to fly.

What a great wizard we have in Jeff Greenbaum, thanks for all the protective guidance. (“Nova, get down right now, you’re way too high!”)…

I was impressed with the professional manner that you run the program. You were prompt and dependable throughout our series of lessons. Your 20 years of experience in the sport was evident in your instruction and focus on safety.

Jeff, your emphasis on safety, technique and kiting skill is really commendable. I got kudos on launch for managing my shit well (enough ;). Well done.

Thank you for giving me a concrete foundation of basic skills, for giving me the experiences I needed before a mountain trip, for helping to give me confidence in my abilities, and for giving me a chance to fly this weekend ...for this life-changing weekend experience.

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.

– Jeff leaves no stone unturned – when you are learning from Jeff he will give you his full attention and will make sure you understand every mistake you are making as well as all the things you are doing well.

Brian HachtmanRight Decision, reflection

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.

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!
