What do we do?
Paragliding is our passion. We want to share that passion far and wide. We do this in four ways. Firstly we offer advice and sell both new and used paragliding equipment, we offer tourists the chance to view the spectacular scenery around Thailand from a viewpoint most people only dream of, we teach people to fly with our partners at Fly Koh Larn and finally we guide qualified pilots around Thailand to fly above mountains and beaches.
As a passenger on one of our tandem flights you can quite literally sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular views Thailand has to offer. You could be 1000m over a mountain top or soaring over white sandy beaches. Our experienced pilots will ensure that your flight will be something you will remember for the rest of your life and of course they will ensure that you get back on the ground safely to tell your friends and family about your amazing experience.
The Happy Bus is the banner we use for our guided trips around Thailand and beyond.
.........for the XC hounds!
For pilots who want to get kilometres under their belt rather than hours Khao Sadao is the best XC site in Thailand. The current open distance record of 243 km was set here recently and flights of 100km or more are very common in the flat lands behind take off. Retrieve is always interesting as the locals will come to greet you with the famous Thai smiles, they will probably feed, you and offer you a lift back to take off. Be careful though as you may end up with a marriage proposal or two as well!

.....for new pilots wanting to spend smooth hours in the sky
For newer pilots who just want to get hours under their belt then Koh Larn is the perfect destination. Koh Larn is a small island situated about 2 hours drive east of Bangkok. The ridge is around 3km long and you can fly the whole island for hours on end. Landing on the beach after a soaring session can be followed up with tasting some of the local seafood and relaxing with friends or family. For non flying visitors there is plenty to do with the usual beach activities.
