This sport developed from the high demand from paragliders and skydivers to go bigger, steeper and faster! Let’s not sugarcoat it.. this sport is dangerous! But with the proper training, guidance and decision-making skills, you could take this sport into the backcountry, on coastal cliffs and into the late years of your life! The first speedflying wing was developed in 2006 and new designs, concepts and procedures have been evolving rapidly ever since! We only fly the world’s best wings including Ozone, Level Wings and Swing! These are the leaders in speedfly technology and advancements in this wonderful sport.

Owner Todd Higley has been speedflying since 2001… yeah, before wingers were made! 

They called it “Ground Launching” back then. Many high performance skydive canopy pilots were running these parachutes off mountain sides and skiing down backcountry runs.


For brand-new pilots, the training can be done in as little as 7-10 days and you can receive a license through the USHPA and or ASC (35-40 flights). As far as Skydivers and paragliders, you can be ready to go in as little as 2-4 days. All ground instruction, equipment demos and shuttles are included in the course fee!
