BIRDS Paraglider School was established in 1999.
BIRDS Paraglider School was established in 1999 at the Nishi Kyoto Paraglider Training Hill, a vast field with a take-off point at 30m in Tamanoi Yagicho, Nantan City. Take-ofT points accessible by monorack (monorail) at 130m and 200m were later added.
In 2003, we opened Para-Park Kyoto with a take-off point at 580m elevation on Mt. Saburougatake in Kameoka City and a landing area in Chitose.
The wind that blows from the basin below is a gentle updraft, well-rated by beginners and advanced pilots alike.
Our instructors have followed education programs from the Japan Paragliding Association (JPA). While striving to create an enjoyable and relaxed environment, they aim for safety-first guidance at all times.
BIRDS gathers members from elementary school students to active 70-year-olds, all from different backgrounds and careers.
That said, when paragliding, you'll forget all about work and discover a free and care-free version of you!
People enjoy flying for many reasons: to obtain a pilot's license, to take part in competitions and set records, to keep fit, to explore the world from a new perspective, or simply to forget the day-to-day.
We also hold many events such as regular domestic and overseas tours, barbecues and fancy-dress events.
Come and enjoy paragliding in the company of all our fun-loving BIRDS members!
