Flying near Lexington, KY?
Hi All,

I moved to Lexington last winter, and I'm a foot-launch rated P2 pilot looking for some good local flying. (If that's possible! And "local" can be loosely defined.) Are there any active club members in my area that are paragliders?

It appears that most (or all) of you active in the club are towing hang pilots - is that correct? I don't have towing experience but would like to learn, so any information about paraglider tow instructors is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Greg Covey

Hi Greg, yes most of us are hang glider pilots. There is a guy down in your area that has a scooter tow system that has in the past towed paragliders. I believe his name on this list is Hankglider. If you are on facebook, he has a group on there called the bluegrass buzzards. That would be your best bet for getting in the air close to home! Welcome to the area.

There is a paraglider towing instructor Alan Abair who tows near Nappanee in northern Idiana but it is probably too far for you. John Alden near Columbus OH also tows paragliders. I remember him towing a Turkish pilot named Mert. Check with the Ohio Flyers.
