Featured Student


J.R Skola came to Iowa Powered Paragliding with a passion for aviation. JR came out from Cedar Rapids and trained during the tail end of winter weather for one day and had his gear deliverd by the second training session. He took his knowledge from the first session and trained on his own and came back to hone the skills for one more training day. The next day he pulled off about 6 flights at the school and went back to cedar rapids (about a 3-4 hour drive) and made one more flight at home. An disciplined student and a real treat to work with.  

Thank you for the opportunity to train you JR! Happy Flying~

I had a incredible experience learning to powered paraglide.  Having someone who really understands the sport gave me a lot of confidence through the first flight.  Participating in the powered paragliding sport is something I promised myself I would do; Jason made it happen!  THANK YOU!
