BIG OPPORTUNITY IN ATLANTIC CANADA FOR AN HPAC-RATED INSTRUCTOR
With the recent closure of Pegasus Paragliding in Nova Scotia there is an instructional opportunity for someone to step up, fill the void and provide much needed instruction for a growing demand in the Maritimes. There is no other paragliding school in the region. It's an opportunity not to be missed. The options are to bring your own existing school or to purchase the Pegasus assets from the current owner, Patric Stettler. Check out
hpaac.ca and for more information contact Michael Fuller, Senior Instructor and President of HPAAC.
Official Canadian Open Distance Offer is still available!
This challenge is still open as the 250/350 km barriers (in Canada at least) were not broken and the $500 prize not claimed. To try again this year, go to
